Hurricane Irma leaves trail of devastation on Barbuda island

The Caribbean islands took the brunt of Hurricane Irma’s fury.

French President Emmanuel Macron visited the Island of St. Martin, which has been struggling from power outages and looting.

He brought with him 10 tonnes of supplies, but there is demand for much more.

On the island of Barbuda, the government estimates 95 percent of buildings were damaged.

Most residents have been moved to the neighbouring island of Antigua.

Al Jazeera’s John Holman reports from Barbuda island.
