Around '100 Inmates Escape After Hurricane Irma Destroys Prison'

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Wednesday Britain must move quickly to help as Prime Minister Theresa May told Parliament an extra 25 million pounds ($33 million) would be made available on top of the 32 million already pledged.

Duncan said he hopes to charter a plane down to the Virgin Islands later this week and will continue to go down there as many times as he needs to help them recover.

An estimated 6,000 Americans were stranded when Irma hit St. Martin, an island split between French and Dutch control.

Irma broke a number of records, and at one point was a Category 5 hurricane, with winds of up to 185 miles per hour.

"Most of the people left with just the clothes on their backs", he said. "You try to stay strong in public, but once inside, you break". The affected islands are in need of water and food, as well as medical supplies, tarpaulins, plywood, clothing, and cash.

Renault deal blow to Red Bull's future
Reports claim Renault's top brass have told Red Bull officials they no longer want to supply them after next season. It wasn't Honda's fault things didn't work out, it was McLaren's.

With ports mended and weather cleared, officials struggled Monday to get aid to Caribbean islands devastated by Hurricane Irma and tried to take stock of the damage caused by the Category 5 storm.

He said luckily St. Croix didn't get hit as hard as some of the neighboring islands by Hurricane Irma, but numerous other Islands around there have been decimated.

A string of small Caribbean islands was left reeling by Irma.

"The security situation remains precarious, but seems to steadily be improving", he said, adding: "We are trying our best to act in situations (of looting), and have had several people detained".

As night fell on Monday, residents hurried inside, fearful of robbers roaming the streets and of the handful of men walking around yanking chains tied to aggressive dogs. "We can't sleep in peace because of the thieves", Yovanny Roque, a 48-year-old mover, told the Associated Press. Further east, high winds whipped Varadero, the island's most important tourist resort. The tiny dog was later rescued by a local resident who took pity on him. In total, 90% of the island's total structures were destroyed. Large boats leaned sideways on dry land.

Elon Musk Just Shared This Explosive SpaceX Blooper Reel And It's Incredible
In a 2005 interview, Musk said, "Failure is an option here", and, "If things are not failing, you are not innovating enough". Fortunately, SpaceX's last 12 landing attempts, including recycled spacecraft, were successful.

Dutch King Willem-Alexander flew to St. Maarten, which shares the island with the French dependency of St. Martin, to see the devastation wreaked by Irma and express gratitude to relief workers. The full cost of the damage to the region is yet to be calculated, but it's clear that these small, vulnerable Caribbean islands will be unable to meet these costs without significant help from overseas. A further 10 people have lost their lives in Cuba.

Havana was in recovery mode, with crews cleaning away thousands of fallen trees and electricity restored to a handful of neighborhoods.

Most of the island's population of just over 1,600 live in the town of Codrington, where an initial assessment using satellite images appears to show most of the buildings have been damaged.

After chairing a meeting of the Government's emergency Cobra committee, Mr Johnson said 700 troops and 50 police officers had been sent to Anguilla, the British Virgin Islands (BVI) and the Turks and Caicos islands, while 40 tonnes of United Kingdom aid had arrived in the region.
