Hurricane Maria ripped through Dominica as a category four storm late on Monday, damaging hundreds of homes. "I am honestly not preoccupied with physical damage at this time, because it is devastating ..."

The prime minister of Dominica, Roosevelt Skerrit, has called for aid after Hurricane Maria devastated the Caribbean island, destroying infrastructure and leaving at least 15 people dead.

The extent of the damage is unknown given that dozens of districts remained isolated and without communication after Maria hit the island on Wednesday morning with 155mph winds, the strongest hurricane to hit Puerto Rico in more than 80 years.

According to the prime minister, Dominica is now without power, landlines and communication via Whatsapp.
