US Navy aids victims in Dominica

The small island of Dominica has been devastated and the same category 5 hurricane that did the damage is on the move.

UNICEF said that the entire child population of the island, some 23,000 children, were in a vulnerable situation, particularly due to the scarcity of clean drinking water.

Tourism minister Robert Tonge said the island's capital, Roseau, still had severe flooding.

Communication with the island has been down since early yesterday morning.

Major Richard Grimsdell, who has been providing relief in the British Virgin Islands, said the experience has been "the most fulfilling experience of my nine years in the military".

"I'm more anxious about the aftermath: Is there going to be enough food and water?" she said.

As of Thursday afternoon, the electricity service was completely out, the water system was shut off to 70% of customers, and the telecommunications infrastructure was barely functioning.

Puerto Rico faced another night of darkness Friday, two days after Hurricane Maria hurled rain and wind at the US territory and knocked out its electricity grid.

Iris Tosado, a 64-year-old widowed housewife, scanned the almost empty shelves before heading back home. "They're made of wood and can't sustain a strong wind", she said.

"Right now, the only thing I can do is keep myself busy", she says. "People have other priorities than looking good". Pinhole eye were found in only 10 per cent of the 99 storms examined from 1989 to 2006.
