Dominica PM Says At Least 15 Dead And 20 Missing, Breaks Down In Tears

Dominica’s Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, says at least 15 people are dead and 20 others are missing after Hurricane Maria.

In an interview today on ABS News in Antigua, Prime Minister Skerrit said it was a miracle that the death toll was not in the hundreds.

Hurricane Maria ripped through Dominica as a category four storm late on Monday, damaging hundreds of homes.

Skerrit said he has spent the last 24 hours surveying by air the destruction caused by the powerful storm.

He said the destruction is widespread.

The Dominican Prime Minister, who broke down into tears, says the needs are great as thousands of citizens are displaced.

Skerrit says regional leaders and others from around the world have come forward to offer assistance.

He also made a special appeal for aid.
