Island of Barbuda is now empty; 'The damage is complete'

Hurricane Irma Has Completely Devastated This Small Caribbean Island
"For the first time in 300 years, there's not a single living person on the island of Barbuda - a civilization that has existed on that island for over 300 years has now been extinguished". "Fortunately, we had planned ahead for this hurricane, and we had ordered supplies in from Miami and the United States before the hurricane hit", Sanders continued.
Speaking in Southwark on Thursday night, Commonwealth secretary general Baroness Patricia Scotland made an impassioned plea for people to work ceaselessly for the restoration of the island of Barbuda, 95 per cent devastated by Hurricane Irma. Shelters were organised, Antiguans were asked to volunteer accepting children and elderly people into their homes, and essential material - food, water and basics for living were provided by the government.
The dogs will look for their next meal among the chicken, pigs, horses and goats, Karen Corbin, president of the Antigua and Barbuda Humane Society, told TIME. But the government stated it is keeping a police and military presence on Barbuda. But they will remain there for the foreseeable future as Barbuda faces a "mammoth task" to rebuild.
"While the government is doing it's very best, to cope with that situation and start a rebuilding process in Barbuda, we simply can't take on a project of that magnitude by ourselves", Sanders added.
Sanders is seeking help from around the world to aid in recovery efforts, with initial estimates at around $200 million, USA Today reported.

Residents of St. John's, Antigua, said that they want people to know that their island is still open for business, hoping that tourism money, as well as worldwide aid, will help pay for reconstruction on neighbouring Barbuda.
"We have declared a state of emergency in Barbuda because it is a complete disaster and uninhabitable", he says. The government can not do it alone.
On Monday, September 11, even as Hurricane Irma was performing its "dance macabre" over the other countries in the Caribbean, having delivered cruel blows to the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, and all of the French/Dutch Island, St Martin/St Maarten, Pope Francis restated his conviction that Climate Change is real and perilous.
Mentioning that Barbuda has world-class beaches with pink sand and crystal clear water, he said the island is lovely for tourism. "We know that these things have occurred as a result of the profligacy of the countries that are rich, and have abused the system".
