The Royal Navy flagship HMS Ocean is on the way from the Mediterranean to help with reconstruction, and more than 50 British police officers have been being sent to help keep order.

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.

In the past, many British Virgin Islanders have shrugged off hurricanes, stayed at home and not gone to shelters. They include Anguilla, St. Martin, Antigua and Barbuda, and St Kitts and Nevis. At their request, we are taking all emergency calls for the British Virgin Islands and the Turks and Caicos Islands on this number.

Most of her family lives in St. Croix, and she heard from them two days after Irma barreled through, but it took four days for her only sister, who lives on St. Thomas, to reach a phone.

The 60 British Virgin Islands suffered catastrophic damage when they found themselves in the direct path of Hurricane Irma and its 185mph winds which caused a 30ft storm surge flooding hundreds of properties near the coast.

"But I've absolutely no doubt that we can face up to the challenge, we can deliver the help that those islanders need, we are seeing some signs of improvement, things are getting better on BVI, we've now got to make sure Anguilla gets the help it needs".

"We had a serious threat of a complete breakdown of law and order in the British Virgin Islands (BVI)", junior foreign minister Alan Duncan said to Parliament. "But we are very fortunate to have a strong cellar built into Necker's Great House", he wrote in a blog post from nearby Puerto Rico.

With £32 million already committed to help the affected overseas territories, and the pledge to match donations to the Red Cross appeal, Mr Johnson also said the Prime Minister will be making a further announcement on Wednesday. The island's airport has also reopened.

RFA Mounts Bay, which was pre-positioned in the Caribbean ahead of hurricane season, started helping in Anguilla on 7 September.

Already, 20 tonnes of United Kingdom aid has arrived in the region, including more than 2,500 shelter kits and 2,300 solar lanterns.

King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands and French President Emmanuel Macron have both visited their countries' respective Caribbean territories.

Boris Johnson said only £4m remained of a £32m relief fund after troops and police were sent to the area.

"Further flights are expected tonight", said an MoD spokesman on Saturday.
