Dominica post Maria : "From what I saw the island looks as if there was a fire of wind"

Reginald Armour, past President of the Trinidad Bar Association and currently Chairman of the Council of Legal Education for the entire English speaking Caribbean came back from Dominica where he went to help his family after the passage of hurricane Maria.

Reginald Armour is both Dominican and Trinidadian. He traveled to Dominica on Friday September 22 to reach his father and his brother with whom he had lost contact with after the passage of Hurricane Maria over the island on Monday September 18.

He reached the country thanks to the National Helicopter Services of Trinidad and Tobago and he was also able to fly over the island with the support of the rescuers from Venezuela and record the videos below of the situation on the ground. 

The island looks as if there was a fire of wind [...] what you see is just standing sticks all through the mountains of Dominica. [...] From what I saw from helicopter and what I saw driving on the road, 90% of Dominicans have lost the roof to their houses". He says

About The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States

Back to

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has eleven members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, Martinique and Guadeloupe.
