Florida recovering from Hurricane Irma


PEOPLE in the US state of Florida are being warned it is still too dangerous to return to their homes after Hurricane Irma.

More than 6 million homes have been left without power and several people have been killed by the category 4 storm.

Florida Keys was one of the hardest hit areas, with roads blocked and flooding.

The clean-up operation will now begin, with President Donald Trump releasing emergency federal aid to help those affected.

What’s happening in the Caribbean?

The UK’s Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is to fly to the Caribbean to visit the British territories devastated by the hurricane.

It’s understood he’ll go to the British Virgin Islands and Anguilla – which were both badly hit – to see the relief-effort first hand.

Hurricane Irma caused devastation to several Caribbean islands before hitting the south-eastern state of Florida.
