Hurricane Maria: Dominica PM says “we have lost all what money can buy”

STATEMENT BY PRIME MINISTER ROOSEVELT SKERRIT ON THE OUTCOME OF HURRICANE MARIA PRESENTLY OCCURRING.

Tuesday, September 19, 2017 — Initial reports are of widespread devastation. So far we have lost all what money can buy and replace. My greatest fear for the morning is that we will wake to news of serious physical injury and possible deaths as a result of likely landslides triggered by persistent rains.

So, far the winds have swept away the roofs of almost every person I have spoken to or otherwise made contact with. The roof to my own official residence was among the first to go and this apparently triggered an avalanche of torn away roofs in the city and the countryside.

Come tomorrow morning we will hit the road, as soon as the all clear is given, in search of the injured and those trapped in the rubble.

I am honestly not preoccupied with physical damage at this time, because it is devastating…indeed, mind boggling. My focus now is in rescuing the trapped and securing medical assistance for the injured.

We will need help, my friends, we will need help of all kinds.

It is too early to speak of the condition of the air and seaports, but I suspect both will be inoperable for a few days. That is why I am eager now to solicit the support of friendly nations and organisations with helicopter services, for I personally am eager to get up and get around the country to see and determine what’s needed.

    May God continue to bless our island St. Lucia. I pray for the other Caribbean islands and I pray that there are no deaths.

    Dominica should stop electing dictators for life, the gods don’t like that.

    for all those saying these events are acts of God must be very careful, a high percentage of these “natural disasters” are due to MAN and not only mother nature, they created “HAARP” (research for yourselves) and other weather manipulating machines, it’s not some conspiracy theory, its all very real, let us not be asleep like sheep as the wolves (“the powers that be”) fool us all.

    May God bless Dominica!
