Caribbean Hurricane Survivors Report Running Out of Water

St. John's, September 13 (RHC)-- In the Caribbean, residents of islands devastated by Hurricane Irma’s Category 5 winds say they’re running out of food and water.

Desperate pleas for food, water and assistance came as the governments of France, Britain and the Netherlands faced increasing criticism over their responses to the hurricane in their Caribbean territories, after the storm leveled over 90 percent of buildings on some islands.

Meanwhile, in the United States, the death toll from Irma rose to 22 as nearly 4.5 million Florida residents remained without power late Tuesday.

There are reports at least 90 percent of homes in the Florida Keys suffered some damage, with a quarter of them destroyed completely.
