One person died on the British overseas territory, said Ronald Jackson, executive director of the Caribbean disaster and emergency management agency, who added that "police stations, hospitals, school facilities, three or four emergency shelters, a home for the infirm and the aged, as well as the fire station", along with many homes, had been damaged or destroyed.

The tourist board said major resorts on the island had withstood the onslaught. The airport and two ports remain closed.

The British government has been accused of a failure to respond speedily to the devastation.
