The strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic skirted Puerto Rico last night with 185 mph winds leaving an estimated 1 million people without power.  The Bahamas, Dominican Republic and Turks and Caicos are bracing for impact today as Hurricane Irma powers on after laying waste to the Caribbean on her deadly path to the US mainland.

Caribbean islands Barbuda and St Martin have been reduced to rubble.  They suffered the storm’s full fury with a reported 95 per cent of properties destroyed on both islands. Officials said at least eight people died on the French part of St Martin – a pristine resort known for its vibrant nightlife.
