How to Help Hurricane Irma Victims

Dozens of people were killed as Irma left a trail of destruction across the Caribbean, leaving thousands homeless and causing billions of pounds of damage.

Mapp praised the response of the USA federal government and said President Donald Trump would visit in about a week.

He said: 'This is a very big consular crisis and I am confident we are doing everything we possibly can to help British nationals'. "It doesn't matter which color you are, we are all helping each other", he said as he walked through Charlotte Amalie shortly after the curfew was lifted at noon.

Accidentally leaked documents reveal the risky lags will be sent to nearby St Lucia after a "complete breakdown of law and order" in the battered British Overseas Territory.

A mother picking up her daughter, a survivor who flew into Paris's Charles de Gaulle airport on Monday, said government help was non-existent on St Martin. Looting and lawlessness were reported Saturday by both French and Dutch authorities, who were sending in extra troops to restore order. "I am truly heartbroken by this news".

He is expected to visit two of the British dependent States of British Virgin Islands [BVI] and Anguilla, which were ravaged by Irma.

Army soldiers have deployed from RFA Mounts Bay to the British Virgin Islands, while an A400 flight brought a further 50 marines. "At the end of the day, we want to try to help as much as we can".

- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is assessing the Schneider Regional Medical Center - the principal medical facility on St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands.

Authorities have begun evacuating locals and tourists from the hardest-hit territories, where many have complained about a breakdown in law and order and widespread shortages of food, water and electricity.

French President Emmanuel Macron and British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson traveled Tuesday to the hurricane-hit Caribbean, rebuffing a wave of criticism over the relief efforts as European countries step up aid to their devastated island territories.

She said it was "alarming" that nearly a week had passed since the hurricane and Sir Alan was "still talking about the potential evacuation of British citizens".

Ms Penney said: "It slammed into me, but it would have taken me if Chouby hadn't been able to be right next to me and just push it so that it got directed into the wind".

Meanwhile, BVI officials are suggesting that non-BVI residents should be evacuated from the islands since there would be no work for them in the foreseeable future.

He said food supplies were being provided by 1,500 helpers on the ground in the West Indies, with the number rising to 2,000 over the coming days.

"But I've absolutely no doubt that we can face up to the challenge, we can deliver the help that those islanders need, we are seeing some signs of improvement, things are getting better on BVI, we've now got to make sure Anguilla gets the help it needs".
