Hurricane Irma reaches the Carribean

Chamberlain said the two have a flight booked for Sunday to Miami but since the Providenciales airport is still closed and Hurricane Irma is expected to hit Miami on Sunday, it's likely the flight will be canceled.

Another problem for Chamberlain and Loren is Hurricane Jose, a Category 4 storm with winds up to 150 miles per hour that is now east of the Lesser Antilles islands. "At that point it was saying, 'If you can make arrangements to leave, ' but at that point it was nearly too late", she said.

"There might be a point where if your damage is so intense and too often, then it doesn't make sense to remain".

Yesterday, Jamaicans living in the TCI appealed to the Government to bring them home before Irma hit. Most prediction models forecast that Hurricane Jose will veer northeast into the North Atlantic Ocean and miss populated islands.

Ms. Hodge criticized International Development Secretary Priti Patel for her slow response to the damage to Anguilla.

"In comparison to the French president who has set up an emergency fund, an emergency hotline and a reconstruction fund her response after the storm has passed is absolutely pathetic", Ms. Hodge told the Guardian.

Chamberlain livestreamed her experience waiting out Hurricane Irma on September 6 and 7.

"Sometimes they need a physical therapist or an occupational therapist, whatever it might be", said Joe Rich, founder of 1 World Foundation.

Hurricane watches have been hoisted in southern Florida as of Thursday morning.

32 million people in the Caribbean live in areas exposed to high-speed wind zones (excess of 60km/h).

The four most solid buildings on Saint Martin, shared by France and the Netherlands, were destroyed.

But Britain retains a handful of overseas territories in the Caribbean - Anguilla, Turks and Caicos Islands, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands and Montserrat.
