"So far, we would have buried in excess of 15 people," he told a television network of Antigua and Barbuda, a neighboring country.

Maria made landfall on Dominica as a Category 5 storm late on Monday night, destroying hundreds of homes and cutting off the mountainous island's communication systems and shutting its two airports. It was later downgraded to a Category 4 storm.
