Hurricane Ivan kills 3 in Grenada *LINK*

Three deaths in Grenada are being blamed on Hurricane Ivan after the powerful storm swept across the Caribbean island nation devastating its capital, St. George's, according to the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Response Agency (CDERA).

The eye of the storm moved over Grenada early on Tuesday, with maximum sustained winds of 120 mph (195 kph) -- a Category 3 storm.

It has since intensified into a Category 4 hurricane and is heading westward across the Caribbean Sea toward Jamaica.

Grenada -- with about 90,000 residents -- is southernmost of the Windward islands, just north of Trinidad and Tobago.

The hurricane destroyed the residence of Grenada's prime minister, Dr. Keith Mitchell, CDERA reported.

Donovan Gentles, CDERA's Preparedness And Response Manager, said the agency had lost contact with Grenada's emergency operations center and did not have any details on the deaths.
