Hundreds of United Kingdom troops and 50 police officers have already been sent to British overseas territories in the region, after they were battered by the most powerful storm ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean.

He is 55-year old Derek Ragnath, formerly of Mahaica Public Road near the police station.

In the past, many British Virgin Islanders have shrugged off hurricanes, stayed at home and not gone to shelters.

Those on Caribbean islands braced for a second battering, this time from Hurricane Jose, were told the storm has weakened slightly. They include Anguilla, St. Martin, Antigua and Barbuda, and St Kitts and Nevis.

The billionaire has also challenged the whole world on the importance of an outpouring of solidarity with the islands most impacted: "Please send your donations to the british Red Cross".

The shocking pictures show just how devastating the hurricane has been as it turned most of the Caribbean Islands brown.

"We are hopeful Hurricane Jose will not hit the BVI as hard as Hurricane Irma did, but we're urging everyone to get prepared and helping with supplies where we can", he wrote.

British overseas territories, including Anguilla, Turks and Caicos and the British Virgin Islands, are self-governing but rely on the United Kingdom government for protection against natural disasters. He further reported that about half of Barbuda's 1,800 population were homeless while nine out of 10 buildings had suffered damage, many of them destroyed.

The Foreign Secretary's visit was praised by Anguillan chief minister Victor Banks, who said it "sends a very positive signal to Anguillians that the British are serious about their response".

Anguilla, Turks and Caicos, and the British Virgin Islands (BVI) are among 14 British overseas territories in the Caribbean.

Stephen Norris, commanding officer of RFA Mounts Bay, insisted his men were on the islands providing support as soon as the storm had calmed.

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

He also tweeted on Sunday that he will be coordinating with families to help with relief efforts.

Speaking to Sky News' Foreign Affairs Editor Sam Kiley on an aid flight to the region, alongside Royal Marines and medics, Mr Johnson said: "This has been long-planned ever since the hurricane broke".

Dutch King Willem-Alexander was due to visit the Dutch side of Saint Martin on Monday, the palace said in a statement.

Mr Johnson has said "further support" for British overseas territories hit by Irma would be announced within days.
