As Hurricane Irma leaves millions without power in Florida, disaster risk experts have started counting the possible cost from the deadly storm.

Irma, which hit Florida as a category four hurricane on Sunday, has since been downgraded to a tropical storm.

Analysts have cut their estimates of the total cost, but still expect it to run to tens of billions of dollars.

The storm is likely to have the biggest long-term economic impact in the Caribbean.
