A Hudson Valley native and her family were hoping to relax in the Caribbean before heading back to school and work for the fall.

Hurricane Irma, however, had other plans for the family of four, who were in Turks and Caicos when the storm hit Thursday into Friday morning.

Mike and Rockland County native Annie Joachim, along with their two daughters, Charlotte and Piper, found themselves in the thick of the storm early Friday morning, and woke up to wreckage unlike anything they'd ever seen, Annie told Daily Voice. Anne, from Suffern, now lives in Westwood, N.J.

Irma slammed through the islands and is en route to Florida this weekend. Forecasters say it has been downgraded slightly but remains a powerful and dangerous system.
