Meanwhile 'Monster' Hurricane Irma battered Puerto Rico with 185mph winds and heavy rain late last night after earlier in the day destroying Caribbean islands of Barbuda and St Martin with almost 100% of homes and properties inhabitable, with the famous airport of St Martin totally destroyed.
Around 100,000 are without power on Puerto Rico.

Irma was following a projected path that would see it hit the Dominican Republic and Haiti on Thursday, with Haiti still reeling from the major quake in 2010 which killed an estimated 160,000 people.
Th UN is estimating nearly 40 million people to be affected by Irma alone.
