Boris Johnson visits British Virgin Islands over Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Irma has killed at least 10 people in Cuba over the weekend, the authorities say, bringing the death toll in the Caribbean to 38 as the weakened storm moves up the U.S. state of Florida. "Please help us secure more media coverage of their needs and fundraising opportunities", the petition reads.

"We're always feeling like second-class citizens".

"We have seen first-hand just how ferocious and unforgiving this storm was", he added.

"There is nearly no aid on the ground here and we are nearly out of food and water". Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic seem to largely have been spared.

A DORSET woman who lives on the Caribbean island of Tortola has spoken of her fears for her future following the destruction unleashed by Hurricane Irma.

In some islands, including Barbuda, 90 percent of buildings were reported to be destroyed or damaged, according to Business Insider. It did not feel like my home that I had always known. "There's nothing there", Manon Brunet-Vita said as she walked through the streets of Grand Case.

While many of Cuba's top resorts on the northern islands took a direct hit from the hurricane, Castro said they would be fixed up in time for high tourist season at the end of the year.

Power and electricity in Vieques are expected to be down for days, possibly weeks. "The most information we're getting is a woman riding her auto around with giant speakers blasting the radio or a neighbor on a microphone giving updates".

"We have a lot of little kids and nothing to cook with", Ulloa told 14ymedio.

Latona says she's not surprised by the limited focus on Puerto Rico.

More than 6.2 million homes and businesses remained without power, and 220,000 people huddled in shelters.

A state of emergency remains in place for British Virgin Islands.

A senior British Virgin Islands government official called on the expertise of the Serve On volunteer team but the group was initially hampered from reaching the disaster zone after Hurricane Jose threatened to follow Hurricane Irma's path.

"It's sad when you come home to this", she said as she began to cry.

As foreigners rushed to leave the island, locals struggled to find basic amenities.

The storm had killed three people when it struck the southern Florida Keys island chain as a more powerful Category Four on Sunday.

Branson states further that Virgin Atlantic's Antigua flight was, on Thursday, loaded with essential items, "including blankets and bottled water to help in the recovery efforts". Yet the media coverage of other hurricane relief in Texas and Florida, and the unexpected political moves involved, have dominated the news.

Strong winds and heavy rain also lashed the Dominican Republic, Haiti and the low-lying Turks and Caicos Islands Thursday into Friday.

"But we love it, and we want to go out and rebuild eventually". It was forecast to head north toward Florida in the evening.

"People don't realise that these are British people, these are British islanders and we have a duty to them".
