So, in a test I wrote the following sentence:
The city looked horrible after the hurricane was done destroying it.
I was told that the usage of "done" in here is incorrect, but I have no idea why. Could someone please explain? I've seen this used a number of times (done + -ing), is it specifically connected to the word "destroy?" I am supposed to use only English grammar in my tests, so it is possible that this is something exclusive to other forms of English. I am simply puzzled.
