Kenny Chesney's home destroyed by Hurricane Irma

It’s a total loss.

Kenny Chesney’s home in the U.S. Virgin Islands has been destroyed by Hurricane Irma.

The country singer took to Twitter to share photos of the devastation, though he was not there when the storm hit.

In a heartfelt post on his website, he described the destruction Irma caused in the U.S. Virgin Islands and other islands in the Caribbean.

“I’ve never been in war, but the devastation, the people’s faces in a place I know by heart have left me feeling helpless. It’s total devastation,” he wrote.

Chesney, 50, quickly sprung into action, putting together an organization called the Love for Love City Foundation. In his emotional post about Hurricane Irma, he urged fans to donate to the cause and provided several options for doing so.

It’s unclear how much money the foundation has raised to date.

Speaking with HLN’s “Morning Express with Robin Meade” about the disaster, which he called “biblical in nature,” Chesney vowed to do everything in his power to help the islands rebuild.

“That place and the people mean so much more to me than my house,” he said.

“I’m gonna do everything that I possibly can to try to relieve some stress from people that I’ve really grown to love over the years, who has meant so much to my life. This place, these islands, have meant so much to me.”
