Hurricane Maria has knocked out power to the entire island of Puerto Rico, home to 3.5 million people.

Abner Gómez, head of the disaster management agency, said none of the customers of Puerto Rico's Electric Power Authority had any electricity.

The US National Hurricane Center said "catastrophic" flooding was sweeping parts of the island.

Maria is moving away from Puerto Rico, weakening to a category two storm.
