KINGSTON, Jamaica - Hurricane Ivan's deadly winds and monstrous waves bore down on Jamaica on Friday, threatening a direct hit on its densely populated capital and prompting the evacuation of half a million people from coastal areas, where roads were already flooded.
In its wake, Ivan left the island of Grenada a wasteland of flattened houses, twisted metal and splintered wood and sparked a frenzy of looting. The death toll stood at 23 and was expected to rise.
