"And I'm pleased to say that 24 hours later, or 48 hours later, we've been able significantly to reinforce the Marines".

Others said Dutch and French governments, who also have Caribbean territories, prepared more adequately for the storm. Her body was found floating outside her front door after water entered her house, according to Cuba Civil Defense, which issued a list of all the victims. The islands saw significant devastation.

Even as Hurricane Irma was bringing its might to bear on the west coast of Florida, there was one thing that could not be buried by the enormous storm's winds: all the wreckage those winds have made of the Caribbean.

Sir Richard was writing from Puerto Rico, where he said he is mobilising aid efforts and rebuilding plans for the British Virgin Islands (BVI) and the wider Caribbean.

The primary focus for now is "making sure people have meals, water and shelter", Mapp said.

Irma made landfall in Cuba late Friday as a Category 5 storm, blasting into seaside towns and causing flooding in low-lying areas of Havana.

He stated: "We felt the full power of the most grounded tropical storm ever in the Atlantic Ocean".

The storm also grazed Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Haiti before pummeling parts of Cuba.

People in Florida rushed to board up their homes, take their boats out of the water and gas up their cars. "I wanted to reassure you that the premier (Dr D. Orlando Smith) and I are working together to coordinate our response, relief and recovery", Jaspert said.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauret said Saturday that prior to Irma's landfall, the State Deparment assisted departure of US citizens through commercial and charter transportation, along with our own employees and family members. And two Dutch military aircraft were being sent the island of Curacao and on to St. Martin to deliver food and water meant to last the population of 40,000 five days. Looting and lawlessness were reported Saturday by both French and Dutch authorities, who were sending in extra troops to restore order.

Necker is among the 50 British Virgin Islands (BVI).

Anguilla suffered extensive damage, and at least one person there has been confirmed dead. About 95 percent of the structures on the island have been damaged, Time reports. Gaston Browne, prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda, called the destruction "heart-wrenching".

"In conjunction with the premier and in order to clear the roads and continue with the recovery effort, the curfew will be extended", Jaspert said.

"I just want to let all our friends and family and loved ones know we are safe, that we are taking care of ourselves, and we are helping to take care of St. Thomas as a whole", Elizabeth Newton, lieutenant commander of the Coast Guard station at St. Thomas, said in a video message on Twitter on Monday.
