Hurricanes with the highest wind speed to hit the US

British billionaire Richard Branson has called for a "Marshall plan" to help the Caribbean recover from the devastation wrought by Hurricane Irma, which left tens of thousands homeless and sparked looting on islands left short of food and water. "Also, salt spray whipped up by the hurricane can coat and desiccate leaves while they are still on the trees".

Conger, his wife and a group of his friends were vacationing in the British Virgin Islands as Irma grew in strength. The government there said up to 90 percent of buildings were damaged or destroyed.

"I have never seen anything like this hurricane".

The storm made landfall as a Category 5 hurricane on the small island of Barbuda on September 6.

According to Colombini, YuMi should supplement or assist human conductors rather than replace them. In order to make the event a roaring success, YuMi had to undergo rigorous training.

Irma's first contact with land occurred earlier this week after approaching perpendicular to the Lesser Antilles before colliding with them, causing widespread damage - and several deaths - on a cluster of the Leeward Islands including Barbuda, Antigua, Anguilla, St. Maarten and St. Barts.

"We have maintained and kept law and order on the British Virgin Islands, which at one point could have dramatically threatened the already unfortunate plight of those who had been hit by the hurricane".

Some residents say they have seen little help, and some United Kingdom tourists on other hurricane-hit islands complain that they have remain stranded while other countries have already flown their citizens home. You can help residents of Puerto Rico through a local nonprofit here.

Fifty-three police officers were also being deployed "to help sort things out, get these wonderful places back on their feet", Johnson said.

"So we haven't been able to raise the funds from other governments at the moment".

"Basically, life-saving commodities is what we are getting in there", he said.

The Foreign Secretary has travelled to Anguilla and the British Virgin Islands to see the destruction wrought by the storm and observe the Government's aid efforts.

There's damage in the Virgin Islands and its shores are shattered by debris.
