Footage of Popular Cruise Ship Destination St. Thomas After Hurricane Irma

Britain has sent more than 700 troops and 50 police officers to the British Virgin Islands after Irma swept through last week.

He is 55-year old Derek Ragnath, formerly of Mahaica Public Road near the police station.

Photos from the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on the Landsat 8 satellite show some of Irma's effect on the British and U.S. Virgin Islands from space.

At least 38 people were killed and thousands left homeless when the hurricane struck several islands in the Caribbean during September.

While the health and wellbeing of those on Necker is without question the most important thing, Branson has updated followers and friends on social media to let them know that the deadly hurricane utterly destroyed his private tropical paradise. They include Anguilla, St. Martin, Antigua and Barbuda, and St Kitts and Nevis.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said the British government "should have acted much faster", and those with relatives in hurricane-hit areas have said they have not been supported.

"I think a lot more should be done from us worldwide to help them out".

The team were stranded in Barbados overnight on Friday - but were able to help the British Virgin Islands' governor's permanent secretary David Archer to return to the islands' main island, Tortola. As for the island of Necker island and Mosquito, the buildings have been destroyed, but the people seem to be going well so far.

Mr Banks revealed the UK Government had "responded within hours of the passage of the storm", adding: "By midday the next day, the Royal Navy was here with a ship".

Following Irma's devastation, Boris Johnson has announced a fund allocation of about 32 million pounds, claiming that another financial support is to be allocated in the upcoming days.

He also appealed to the British government to establish a "disaster recovery Marshall Plan" for the BVI and other Caribbean islands, a reference to the operation launched by the United States to rebuild western Europe after World War II.

The foreign secretary said the UK's military presence on the islands was "really ratcheting up".

"But with the United Kingdom response to Irma drawing wide criticism, Theresa May is still to announce whether she or Boris Johnson will visit those most affected, look them in the eye and put their concerns at the centre of her Government's response plan".
