Royal Marines have also been deployed to "protect the Governor".

The convicts pose a "serious threat of the complete breakdown of law and order" on the islands, according to foreign minister Sir Alan Duncan.

The prison, which is believed to house up to 200 inmates, is just one of the many structures devastated by Hurricane Irma.

At least 10 people were killed in Cuba by Hurricane Irma, majority crushed by collapsing buildings, authorities said on Monday, bringing the death toll from the ferocious storm to 39 in the Caribbean.

In the French-controlled part of the island of St. Martin, some residents said food scarcity has led to looting at stores and some violence. Water supplies and telephone lines were also down. Jose is not now a threat to the U.S.

Meanwhile, the cleanup began on Cuba, the largest island in the Caribbean, whose northern territories took a substantial hit, with reports of major flooding in the capital Havana.

Communication to the numerous islands was lost in the storm, and damage assessments are slow. "They don't know what to do".

After passing through the Caribbean, Irma travelled north to Florida.
