East Anglia joins national response to the devastation of Hurricane Irma

About a week ago, one of the strongest hurricanes in recent decades, "Irma", passed through the Caribbean, causing serious damage to several islands.

Officials moved quickly and evacuated the vast majority of the nearly 2,000 residents to Antigua, most of whom had been left homeless by he first storm.

As reported by CNN, Sanders, who has been the US ambassador to Antigua and Barbuda since 2015, said the damage from the storm "was complete", adding that there is not one single living person on the island.

The Barbudan people have been living on the island of #Barbuda for 300 years, but after the 378-mile-wide #Hurricane Irma tore through the 62-square-mile island, "the damage is complete", according to Ronald Sanders, the US ambassador to the nation of Antigua and Barbuda.

"We've had most of the people we've brought over to Antigua in shelters", says Sanders.

Mentioning that Barbuda has world-class beaches with pink sand and crystal clear water, he said the island is lovely for tourism. "We've tried to make living accommodations as good as humanly possible in these circumstances".

Barbuda's relocated residents are now living in cramped conditions in Antingua's government buildings and nursing homes. "Fortunately, we had planned ahead for this hurricane, and we had ordered supplies in from Miami and the United States before the hurricane hit". Children will be attending school in Antigua for the time being.

Rebuilding in such a manner would cost over $200 million, he said. The island has no running water, power, or communication services.

It will take around $US200 million ($250 million) for Barbuda to recover - and the island won't be able to rebuild without outside help, he added. "We can not afford to take on this responsibility by ourselves. We are hopeful that the worldwide community will come to our aid, not because we're begging for something we want, but because we're begging for something that is needed".

The Prime Minister Gaston Browne and other officials have attributed this to poor building standards in Barbuda. "We, unfortunately, who contribute less than naught point naught percent of pollution of the world's atmosphere, are the world's greatest victims".
