Hurricane Irma continues its deadly rampage across the Caribbean.

:00:07.:00:09.

And now, there's another hurricane coming up behind it.

:00:10.:00:14.

In Barbuda, where there's already overwhelming destruction,

:00:15.:00:19.

a mass evacuation is happening now to escape a second hit.

:00:20.:00:22.

Everybody will tell you the same - they're not coping.

:00:23.:00:24.

Everyone is in the same situation - and nobody can't help one another.

:00:25.:00:29.

Amid criticism from MPs, Britain's relief effort is underway

:00:30.:00:34.

to the British Overseas Territories affected.

:00:35.:00:38.

Irma is heading for Florida, where those who can are leaving -

:00:39.:00:41.

others are hunkering down and hoping for the best.

:00:42.:00:44.

Today is the day to do the right thing for your family

:00:45.:00:47.

This storm is wider than our entire state.

:00:48.:00:52.

We'll be looking at the devastation wrought by the hurricane so far,

:00:53.:00:55.

and looking at whether there's worse to come.

:00:56.:00:57.

A report suggests the youth justice system treats black and ethnic

:00:58.:01:03.

As the UN warns of an unprecedented refugee crisis in Myanmar,

:01:04.:01:09.

we report on the persecution driving out the Rohingya Muslims.

:01:10.:01:14.

How more and more of us are being prescribed and becoming

:01:15.:01:17.

And the 13-year-old girl whose organs have been transplanted

:01:18.:01:23.

into a record eight people after her death.

:01:24.:01:28.

And coming up in Sportsday on BBC News - James Anderson becomes

:01:29.:01:31.

the first English cricketer to reach 500 Test wickets -

:01:32.:01:35.

only the sixth player ever to reach the milestone.

:01:36.:01:57.

Hurricane Irma has torn across the Caribbean, leaving death

:01:58.:02:02.

So far, at least 19 people have been killed and more

:02:03.:02:07.

The massive storm,one of the most powerful Atlantic

:02:08.:02:10.

hurricanes ever recorded, is still passing through

:02:11.:02:14.

the Caribbean, and is forecast to hit the United States on Saturday.

:02:15.:02:17.

And there's another hurricane coming up behind

:02:18.:02:19.

Jose has strengthened to a Category 4, driving winds of 125mph.

:02:20.:02:25.

Forecasters warn it could strengthen still further.

:02:26.:02:29.

Our correspondent Laura Bicker is the first journalist to reach

:02:30.:02:32.

Already devastated by Irma, the islanders are racing to evacuate

:02:33.:02:45.

to neighbouring Antigua, before Hurricane Jose makes landfall.

:02:46.:02:47.

The island of Barbuda was once a Caribbean paradise.

:02:48.:02:51.

Hurricane Irma has reduced it to rubble.

:02:52.:02:56.

The ruins lie scattered, torn and ripped apart.

:02:57.:03:05.

Having survived the worst storm in living memory,

:03:06.:03:09.

and knowing another is on the way, people are exhausted, hungry,

:03:10.:03:12.

I'm just waiting to get evacuated from here,

:03:13.:03:19.

and then I'm going to come back and try and salvage

:03:20.:03:21.

Everybody will tell you the same - they're not coping.

:03:22.:03:35.

The core of the hurricane carved a cruel and deadly path

:03:36.:03:44.

A two-year-old died, drowned as her mother tried

:03:45.:03:48.

But incredibly, the rest of the people on this island

:03:49.:03:53.

Don't worry, we're going to get you off the island and we're

:03:54.:03:58.

going to get you to safety and you'll be taken care of.

:03:59.:04:01.

The Prime Minister has travelled from neighbouring Antigua

:04:02.:04:03.

We're going to get you all off the island very soon.

:04:04.:04:08.

He knows this is a race against time before Hurricane Jose arrives

:04:09.:04:11.

We heard him haggling for every boat, helicopter or plane to help

:04:12.:04:15.

But fear starts to spread that not everyone will get out in time.

:04:16.:04:21.

This woman's just been told she doesn't have

:04:22.:04:25.

The sheer horrifying scale of the devastation here means that

:04:26.:04:31.

That means that the whole island will have to be rebuilt.

:04:32.:04:36.

And the government has already admitted it simply

:04:37.:04:40.

The hope is that the funds will come from somewhere.

:04:41.:04:46.

We're hoping that, you know, friendly governments

:04:47.:04:49.

and international partners will step up to the plate and assist us.

:04:50.:04:53.

They should not see this as a form of, let's say,

:04:54.:04:56.

the Prime Minister and the people of Antigua and Barbuda coming

:04:57.:04:58.

This is a disaster, a national disaster.

:04:59.:05:04.

The fragments of people's lives now lie in ruins.

:05:05.:05:09.

They can only hope that one day, they will once again

:05:10.:05:11.

But for now, they must leave by any means possible,

:05:12.:05:15.

And they don't know when they will return.

:05:16.:05:22.

There's been criticism, including from MPs,

:05:23.:05:23.

of the Government's response to the hurricane.

:05:24.:05:27.

Three RAF aid flights are being sent to the Caribbean as part

:05:28.:05:30.

of the relief effort to the British overseas territories.

:05:31.:05:33.

A ship from the Royal Fleet Auxiliary is now traveling

:05:34.:05:35.

to the British Virgin Islands, where a state of emergency

:05:36.:05:38.

Nick Bryant reports from Nassau, in the Bahamas.

:05:39.:05:43.

The Turks and Caicos, where the palm trees that usually

:05:44.:05:51.

attract people to these islands reeled under the violent

:05:52.:05:54.

onslaught of Hurricane Irma - a storm people here had been

:05:55.:05:56.

A monster hurricane that's looked terrifying from space.

:05:57.:06:03.

Now, a horrifying, on-the-ground reality.

:06:04.:06:06.

Picture-postcard holiday destinations like the British Virgin

:06:07.:06:11.

This UK territory has now declared a state of emergency.

:06:12.:06:17.

The Bahamas are starting to be blasted.

:06:18.:06:21.

The only sightseeing this morning, from the relative safety

:06:22.:06:24.

of the balcony, watching the approaching storm.

:06:25.:06:28.

Old imperial buildings that have stood for centuries in this former

:06:29.:06:31.

British colony are braced, shuttered, prepared for the worst.

:06:32.:06:38.

Elton Smith had only just finished rebuilding his business

:06:39.:06:40.

from the last hurricane that caused such devastation less

:06:41.:06:42.

This is one of the worst storms in living memory.

:06:43.:06:47.

So, you know, you've got to get as much together as you can,

:06:48.:06:54.

and plan for the worst, hope for the best.

:06:55.:06:56.

There are five low-lying islands in the archipelago

:06:57.:06:58.

which the authorities are particularly concerned about,

:06:59.:07:00.

which is why the government here has ordered the biggest evacuation

:07:01.:07:03.

But there are fears already for people who have stayed behind -

:07:04.:07:08.

people who have defied those evacuation orders, people

:07:09.:07:10.

who believe they can ride out this storm.

:07:11.:07:14.

In hurricane-hit St Martin, this natural disaster has been

:07:15.:07:16.

exacerbated by the man-made problem of looting.

:07:17.:07:20.

Which is why, in the Dutch part of this territory,

:07:21.:07:22.

the streets are being patrolled by troops who could be helping

:07:23.:07:25.

As for Britain, it's stepped up its aid effort

:07:26.:07:31.

following criticism it's been slow to respond.

:07:32.:07:36.

RAF planes carrying equipment are now on their way.

:07:37.:07:38.

And the Government says it's planning for the longer term.

:07:39.:07:41.

What will be the reconstruction needs for these

:07:42.:07:43.

What support will they need, and what can we give?

:07:44.:07:50.

And we remain committed to ensure that that long-term work is done

:07:51.:07:53.

and that reconstruction work is done, and we provide

:07:54.:07:55.

So far, it's small Caribbean islands like St Martin that are being hit

:07:56.:08:02.

by winds with the power to hurl containers through the air.

:08:03.:08:08.

But all the time, Irma is barrelling towards the American mainland,

:08:09.:08:11.

threatening destruction on a much larger scale.

:08:12.:08:15.

Well, in Florida, the governor is warning

:08:16.:08:16.

its 20 million residents to prepare to evacuate.

:08:17.:08:20.

Around half a million people have already been ordered

:08:21.:08:23.

to leave their homes, and the highways are clogged

:08:24.:08:25.

with cars making their way out of the state.

:08:26.:08:27.

Our correspondent Aleem Maqbool reports from Miami.

:08:28.:08:32.

They're now calling this one of the biggest mass evacuations

:08:33.:08:34.

The roads heading out of southern Florida are clogged,

:08:35.:08:39.

Today is the day to do the right thing for your family

:08:40.:08:44.

This storm is wider than our entire state, and is expected to cause

:08:45.:08:52.

major and life-threatening impacts from coast to coast.

:08:53.:08:55.

At Miami's airport, people scramble for the last

:08:56.:08:57.

In one corner, we find a couple from Liverpool.

:08:58.:09:05.

Luke decided to bring Megan here as a surprise.

:09:06.:09:07.

Now, they're preparing to weather the storm of a lifetime.

:09:08.:09:12.

We spent two days trying to get out of here, so we've just sort of given

:09:13.:09:16.

up on the idea of getting out of here.

:09:17.:09:18.

Our plan is to just wait in the airport until Sunday,

:09:19.:09:21.

because they're adamant that our flight

:09:22.:09:23.

But I just can't really see that happening.

:09:24.:09:26.

I think it's more the inconvenience of being here and not

:09:27.:09:28.

knowing when you're going home, what's happening.

:09:29.:09:31.

I feel, like, the airport's quite a safe building to be in.

:09:32.:09:36.

The area they had been staying in, normally packed with tourists,

:09:37.:09:39.

is in the evacuation zone, and has been all but abandoned.

:09:40.:09:43.

Well, just extraordinary to see Miami's iconic South Beach

:09:44.:09:48.

as deserted as this, but it is an indication of just

:09:49.:09:51.

how seriously people here are taking the warnings,

:09:52.:09:53.

particularly having seen the type of destruction that's been wrought

:09:54.:09:56.

If they are coming here, it's to fill pillowcases with sand,

:09:57.:10:04.

to barricade their homes before Irma hits.

:10:05.:10:06.

Donald Trump himself will be affected.

:10:07.:10:09.

His Florida resort Mar-a-Lago has been forced to close,

:10:10.:10:11.

and is in the projected path of the storm.

:10:12.:10:17.

The National Guard's been deployed here.

:10:18.:10:20.

They're stockpiling commodities that could become scarce in the coming

:10:21.:10:22.

But they're also preparing for what's likely to be

:10:23.:10:28.

Right across this state, there's a sense that

:10:29.:10:37.

time is running out - to protect property...and lives.

:10:38.:10:46.

Well, as well as the damage that is likely to be caused directly by the

:10:47.:10:53.

strength of the winds in this hurricane, the other big fear is of

:10:54.:10:57.

a massive storm surge, huge waves, which will because when it hits.

:10:58.:11:02.

That's why I will not be able to stand where I am standing now, but

:11:03.:11:06.

it is also why there are huge fears about these and other buildings

:11:07.:11:09.

across the city, and to people as well, though. A great deal of

:11:10.:11:16.

anxiety, which is why we are already seeing in some cases storm shutters

:11:17.:11:17.

:11:18.:11:19.

unless the justice That's according to a review by

there is bias and discrimination It's how you're looked at,

:12:20.:12:21.

:12:22.:12:30.

:12:31.:12:33.

of young ethnic minorities, in particular black,

:13:05.:13:07.

the term "gang" is used. Swathes of young people who may not

a dramatic increase The refugees, from the country's

:14:59.:15:00.

Muslim Rohingya minority, are fleeing an army

:15:04.:15:04.

crossed into Bangladesh Many of them accuse Myanmar's army

:15:05.:15:07.

of indiscriminate atrocities. Our correspondent Jonathan Head

:15:08.:15:15.

reports from the north of Rakhine province,

:15:16.:15:17.

where he's seen evidence of the operation to drive

:15:18.:15:21.

Rohingya Muslims from their homes. This is northern Rakhine state,

:15:22.:15:30.

two weeks after attacks by Rohingya militants provoked a ferocious

:15:31.:15:32.

backlash from the army Muslim villages are still being

:15:33.:15:34.

razed to the ground, their inhabitants driven in vast

:15:35.:15:42.

numbers over into Bangladesh. These are scenes I was

:15:43.:15:47.

not supposed to see. I'd been invited on a government-run

:15:48.:15:51.

tour of the troubled We could only see places

:15:52.:15:53.

the government approved of. Even so, the devastation

:15:54.:16:00.

we witnessed was staggering. Village after village,

:16:01.:16:05.

destroyed or deserted. The military officer in charge

:16:06.:16:07.

of border security told us that it is the Muslim terrorists,

:16:08.:16:18.

as he calls the Rohingya militants, who are burning down the villages

:16:19.:16:21.

to force the people away Of all the villages that

:16:22.:16:24.

have been burnt down, have they all been burnt down

:16:25.:16:32.

by Muslim militants? Is that what we are saying,

:16:33.:16:34.

all of them, 100%? But why, then, is this

:16:46.:16:48.

ominously in the distance? We were taken to a Rakhine

Buddhist village. Hatred and fear of Muslims

:16:56.:16:58.

is intense here, all the more Like the government,

:16:59.:17:01.

they don't accept that Rohingyas, Bengalis, they call them,

belong in Myanmar. We don't like, never

liked Bengali people. This is my mother land,

:17:13.:17:13.

my father land, not Bengali land. By chance, we spotted

:17:14.:17:30.

a fire close to the road, It was a Muslim village

:17:31.:17:36.

called Goduthaya. The roof of the madrassa had

:17:37.:17:43.

just been set alight. Islamic school books

:17:44.:17:46.

were strewn across the path. This happened within walking

:17:47.:17:49.

distance of a large police barracks. We've just arrived at this village,

:17:50.:17:56.

and as you can see from these fires, In fact, we bumped into the people

:17:57.:17:59.

who almost certainly lit them, carrying machetes, not

:18:00.:18:03.

wanting to talk. But one did admit, yes,

:18:04.:18:05.

they set these buildings alight The government has claimed that

:18:06.:18:07.

all of the village destruction is at the hands of Muslim militants

:18:08.:18:16.

and Rohingya inhabitants. What we've seen here tells us

:18:17.:18:19.

a very different story, a story of ethnic cleansing,

:18:20.:18:21.

of driving Muslims out We still don't know the fate

:18:22.:18:23.

of the people who once lived here, who left

:18:24.:18:31.

:18:47.:18:55.

of the day's other news stories. The Chief Constable

:18:56.:18:57.

of Police Scotland, Phil Gormley, has stood down while a complaint

:18:58.:18:59.

about him is investigated. Mr Gormley, who has taken leave,

:19:00.:19:02.

said he denies allegations Northern Ireland politician

country's government. The DUP MP has referred himself

:19:14.:19:15.

to the Parliamentary Standards Commission,

:19:16.:19:17.

following a newspaper report. He said the article

:19:18.:19:20.

was "devoid of fact or logic". A father who was drunk

:19:21.:19:28.

and asleep when his dog killed his three-week-old son has

and used them for sex. Carolann Gallon was the only woman

backgrounds. You can't escape the fact that they

:20:21.:20:25.

are from particular communities. And I think that however difficult

:20:26.:20:27.

it is, that avoidance of political correctness has to expand

:20:28.:20:30.

into the debates It may well be that there isn't

:20:31.:20:32.
