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.
