Hurricane Irma wreaks major damage in Caribbean, French Interior Minister Gérard Collomb said



Hurricane Irma has destroyed buildings and caused major flooding on several French island territories in the Caribbean.

 
The four "most solid" buildings on Saint Martin, shared by France and the Netherlands, were destroyed, French Interior Minister Gérard Collomb said.


Power cuts there and on Saint Barthélemy disrupted communications.


The category five hurricane, the highest possible level, has sustained wind speeds reaching 300km/h (185mph).
