Devastating Aftermath Of Hurricane Irma In The Caribbean(Photos) by Explorers(m): 5:20am On Sep 10
The Category 5 storm hit the island nations on Friday and Saturday as it carried on a destructive path from the Caribbean to the south coast of Florida.

Irma has sent the Caribbean and several southern States into crisis mode after reportedly destroying '95 percent' of Saint-Martin, Barbuda, and the British Virgin Islands.

Millions of people have been left stranded and homeless with no access to water, electricity or phone service, and at least 25 dead

The Bahamas and Cuba are bracing for a similarly devastating impact, as is the State of Florida, which is currently being completely evacuated.

More than one million of the 11million residents were evacuated while 120mph winds and 30ft waves wreaked havoc across larges swathes of the countries.

Now, they will return to complete devastation, and some areas may have to wait weeks until the floods subside.


The total death toll from the storm climbed to 25 people as of Saturday morning, reports the New York Times as result of the storm, including nine in unspecified French territories, one in Barbuda, one in Anguilla, two in St Maarten, four in the British Virgin Islands, four in the US Virgin Islands, and three and Puerto Rico.

Troops are being called in to stop looters armed with guns and machetes on hurricane-ravaged St Martin with food, water and medicine running low, it has emerged.

Dutch soldiers are pictured patrolling the streets on the Dutchside of the island

Extra troops and police are arriving on the southern part of the island, which is shared between France and the Netherlands, and part of their job is to help keep order, officials said.

In St Martin, the French occupied half of the island, police men deterred other looters after Hurricane Irma.






Hilarious sign telling looters not to bother breaking in Florida
