Hurricane victims on the devastated Caribbean island of St Maarten are running short of food, with destroyed and looted supermarkets infested with maggots.
St Maarten is a small paradise island in the Caribbean some 1,200 miles south east of Miami, Florida
The island was hit by Hurricane Irma which was closely followed by Hurricane Jose over the period of a week
Supermarkets have been looted by desperate people looking to feed their families following the hurricane
Private yachts have been driven on shore by the 225mph winds which last week struck the paradise island
Rancid meat lay in the aisles, crawling with maggots. Fetid pools of stagnant water and rotting food in the 40 degree heat gave off a stomach-churning stench.
Desperate residents are forced to rely on aid handouts, but with supply lines down and infrastructure shattered, very little is getting through.
'We don't have enough supplies, and what supplies we do have are hard to distribute throughout the island because of the destruction,' Lieutenant Colonel Harro de Vries, commander of the Dutch forces on the island, told MailOnline.
We sent up a drone to capture footage revealing the scale of the devastation wreaked by Hurricane Irma after St Maarten was destroyed by 225mph winds.
help is heeded from every corner of the world.
