Hurricane Gilbert in September 1988 was classified as one of the most severe hurricanes of this century. Hardest hit was Jamaica, where nine of the island's 26 hospitals were severely damaged and three health centers totally destroyed. Shown here, the Princess Margaret Hospital sustained extensive damage, and patients were evacuated.
