The president of France says Hurricane Irma has caused considerable damage on French island territories in the Caribbean, and casualties are expected.

The impact of Irma on St Martin and St Barts would be "hard and cruel", Emmanuel Macron added.

His overseas affairs minister later confirmed at least two people dead and another two seriously injured.

The storm damaged more than 90% of buildings on Barbuda, Antigua and Barbuda's prime minister said.

The category five hurricane, the highest possible level, is now passing over the northern Virgin Islands.
