A woman walks on a street in Marigot on September 11, 2017 on the French Caribbean island of Saint Martin after it was hit by Hurricane Irma.

Reports of severe devastation have been pouring in from the Caribbean since Hurricane Irma slammed into the islands last week.

Communities have been all but destroyed. Food and water are scarce. And local economies that rely on a constant flow of tourist dollars could tank.
