Hurricane Irma continues its deadly rampage across the Caribbean,

:00:00.:00:00.

and now there's another hurricane coming up behind it.

:00:00.:00:11.

In Barbuda, where there's already overwhelming destruction,

:00:12.:00:13.

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

:00:14.:00:19.

Everything just started to decay and just crumble.

:00:20.:00:21.

What have you eaten in the last few days?

:00:22.:00:24.

Hardly anything, because there's nothing to eat.

:00:25.:00:29.

Britain has begun sending aid to the British Overseas Territories

:00:30.:00:34.

in the region, devastated by the hurricane.

:00:35.:00:36.

Irma's heading for Florida, where those who can are leaving.

:00:37.:00:38.

Others are hunkering down and hoping for the best.

:00:39.:00:42.

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

:00:43.:00:46.

and life-threatening impacts from coast-to-coast.

:00:47.:00:51.

We'll have the very latest from the affected region,

:00:52.:00:53.

and looking at whether worse is yet to come.

:01:24.:01:49.

Good evening and welcome to the BBC News at Six.

:01:50.:01:51.

Hurricane Irma has torn across the Caribbean, leaving death

:01:52.:01:54.

So far at least 19 people have been killed and more

:01:55.:01:59.

The massive storm, one of the most powerful Atlantic

:02:00.:02:04.

hurricanes ever recorded, has passed through the Turks

:02:05.:02:06.

and Caicos, and Haiti, after causing widespread damage

:02:07.:02:08.

It's forecast to pass between Cuba and the Bahamas tonight,

:02:09.:02:13.

before hitting the United States over the weekend.

:02:14.:02:15.

And there's another hurricane coming up behind Irma in the Atlantic.

:02:16.:02:17.

Jose has strengthened to a category four, driving winds of 125mph.

:02:18.:02:21.

Forecasters warn it could strengthen still further.

:02:22.:02:24.

Our correspondent Laura Bicker is the first journalist

:02:25.:02:26.

the Islanders are racing to evacuate before Hurricane Jose makes

:02:27.:02:31.

The island of Barbuda was once a Caribbean paradise. Now it is lost.

:02:32.:02:50.

Hurricane Irma has reduced it to rubble. Homes are unrecognisable.

:02:51.:02:55.

The ruins lie scattered, torn and ripped apart. Having survived the

:02:56.:03:03.

worst storm in living memory, and knowing another is on the way,

:03:04.:03:07.

people are exhausted, hungry and just desperate to leave. Barbuda has

:03:08.:03:19.

just gone. What do you do now? I don't know, I'm just waiting to get

:03:20.:03:23.

evacuated from here and then I'm going to try and come back and try

:03:24.:03:27.

and salvage something and help. I don't know. My whole life is here,

:03:28.:03:35.

so... We are not coping, definitely not coping. Everybody will tell you

:03:36.:03:39.

the same, they are not coping. Everyone is in the same situation

:03:40.:03:44.

and nobody can help one another. We will get you off the island to

:03:45.:03:48.

safety and you will be taken care of. The Prime Minister has travelled

:03:49.:03:53.

from neighbouring Antigua to provide some assurance. He knows it is a

:03:54.:03:58.

race against time before Hurricane Jose arrives in a few hours. We

:03:59.:04:02.

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

:04:03.:04:08.

evacuation. Kanik land? But fear starts to spread that not everyone

:04:09.:04:12.

will get out in time. This woman has been told she does not have a place

:04:13.:04:17.

on the next boat. The sheer, horrifying scale of the devastation

:04:18.:04:21.

here means barely a building is salvageable. That means the whole

:04:22.:04:25.

island will have to be rebuilt, and the government has already admitted

:04:26.:04:30.

it simply doesn't have the money. The Prime Minister knows he will

:04:31.:04:35.

need to find funds from somewhere. We are hoping that friendly

:04:36.:04:37.

governments and international partners will step up to the plate

:04:38.:04:41.

and assist us. They should not see this as a form of the Prime Minister

:04:42.:04:48.

and the people coming with a begging bowl, cap in hand. This is a

:04:49.:04:52.

disaster, a national disaster of epic proportions, and we really need

:04:53.:04:57.

external assistance. This is not a want, it is a need. Fragments of

:04:58.:05:04.

people's lives lie in ruins. They can only hope that one day they will

:05:05.:05:08.

once again call the island home, but for now they must leave by any means

:05:09.:05:12.

possible, including this barge. And they do not know when they will

:05:13.:05:13.

return. The first two of three RAF flights

preparations there? Fiona, the priority here is to

:05:33.:05:47.

evacuate those outlying smaller islands of this archipelago that are

:05:48.:05:50.

in the direct path of Hurricane Irma. Because in the past few

:05:51.:05:54.

such devastation less This is one of the worst

:07:00.:07:01.

storms in living memory, so you have to get as much together

:07:02.:07:06.

as you can and plan for the worst, There are five low-lying

:07:07.:07:10.

islands in this archipelago which the authorities

:07:11.:07:15.

are particularly concerned about, which is why the government here has

:07:16.:07:23.

ordered the biggest evacuation But there are fears already

:07:24.:07:26.

for people who have stayed behind, people who have defied those

:07:27.:07:30.

evacuation orders, people who believe they can

:07:31.:07:32.

ride out this storm. In hurricane hit Saint Martin,

:07:33.:07:34.

this natural disaster has been exacerbated by the man-made

:07:35.:07:37.

problem of looting. Which is why, in the Dutch

part of this territory, the streets are being patrolled

by troops who could be helping As for Britain, it has a ship loaded

:07:44.:07:45.

with aid off the island of Anguilla, but the UK aid effort has been

:07:46.:07:53.

criticised as too slow. RAF planes carrying equipment

:07:54.:07:55.

are now on their way. The constraint is

:07:56.:08:01.

about understanding What we don't want to do is rush

:08:02.:08:03.

in with the wrong kind of support, so from a military point of view,

:08:04.:08:07.

it's very important we understand the effects of the hurricane,

:08:08.:08:10.

where is open to us, where can we get to safely,

:08:11.:08:13.

and that is what we have been doing Now we are ready to make the right

:08:14.:08:16.

judgments about where we can most So far it is small Caribbean islands

:08:17.:08:21.

like Saint Barts that have been hit and deluged,

:08:22.:08:26.

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

:08:27.:08:28.

threatening destruction The Governor of Florida has

:08:29.:08:30.

warned its 20 million residents that they should all be prepared

:08:31.:08:41.

to evacuate in the face of Hurricane Irma, which is wider

:08:42.:08:43.

than the entire state. Around 500,000 people have already

:08:44.:08:47.

been ordered to leave their homes and the highways have been clogged

with cars making their Our correspondent Aleem Maqbool

of the biggest mass evacuations The roads heading out

of Southern Florida are clogged, This is a storm of absolutely

:09:03.:09:06.

historic destructive potential. I ask everyone in the storm's path

:09:07.:09:14.

to be vigilant and to heed all recommendations from government

:09:15.:09:17.

officials and law enforcement. Nothing is more important than the

:09:18.:09:22.

safety and security of our people. At Miami's airport, people scramble

:09:23.:09:29.

for the last chance to get out Basically most of the flights

are sold out so we're not The worst case scenario that we're

:09:33.:09:39.

going to get hit by a hurricane and it's terrifying and we're

going to be stuck here for weeks, I had to purchase another ticket

:09:45.:09:47.

yesterday costing $8500 to go one way back to London and I've

:09:48.:09:51.

already paid once. So, I'm just hoping they're

:09:52.:09:54.

going to get me on this plane. The area of Miami normally

:09:55.:10:01.

packed with tourists is within the evacuation zone

:10:02.:10:05.

and has been left It's just extraordinary to see

:10:06.:10:07.

Miami's iconic South Beach as deserted as this,

:10:08.:10:14.

but it is an indication of just how seriously people

:10:15.:10:16.

here are taking the warnings, particularly having seen the type

:10:17.:10:18.

of destruction that's been wrought If they are coming here,

:10:19.:10:22.

it's to fill pillowcases with sand to barricade their homes before

:10:23.:10:30.

Irma hits. Donald Trump himself

:10:31.:10:32.

will be affected. His Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago,

:10:33.:10:37.

has been forced to close and is in the projected path

:10:38.:10:39.

of the storm. The National Guard has

:10:40.:10:45.

been deployed here. They're stockpiling commodities that

:10:46.:10:47.

could become scarce in the coming days like drinking water,

:10:48.:10:50.

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

:10:51.:10:53.

a massive rescue operation. Right across this State,

:10:54.:11:00.

there's a sense that time is running Aleem Maqbool, BBC News,

:11:04.:11:12.

in the Caribbean wasn't bad enough, an earthquake has hit Mexico,

and which killed I never felt anything

started shaking a lot and it felt As pictures have emerged

from the most severely hit areas, the death toll has

continued to rise. The fear is there may be

more shocks to come. TRANSLATION: So far there have

:12:32.:12:34.

been 65 aftershocks. However, it's possible that over

:12:35.:12:36.

the next 24 hours we could see a shock that's as strong

:12:37.:12:40.

as the earthquake. In less than a minute,

:12:41.:12:48.

Juchitan's town hall was reduced to rubble and at least 17

:12:49.:12:50.

of its citizens were killed. Daylight has revealed the extent

:12:51.:12:55.

of the devastation and the huge effort which will be

:12:56.:12:58.

required to rebuild. The use of potentially addictive

:12:59.:12:59.

painkillers across England has doubled in the last 15 years,

:13:00.:13:06.

according to a leading health group. 50,000 patients were studied

:13:07.:13:09.

who were prescribed at least one of four types

:13:10.:13:12.

of potentially addictive drugs. Opioid painkillers, such

:13:13.:13:16.

as codeine and tramadol, In 2015 they were issued

:13:17.:13:18.

to one patient in 20, The length of time people

:13:19.:13:24.

are being prescribed opioid pain killers has also increased,

:13:25.:13:29.

from just over two months in 2000, to a peak of over

:13:30.:13:31.

three months in 2014. Our health correspondent

:15:04.:15:07.

falls between the NHS and local councils, and schemes like the one

about pain management, as well as identifying and helping

patients who are struggling. Most people with persistent pain

will describe it as severe. No one should stop their medication

before seeking the advice of their GP, but one

of the country's leading pain experts says it is clear that

who is benefiting should have their drugs removed,

road to recovery, but this part of their journey

is especially daunting. They're being taken back to

the arena where they were injured. They hope that seeing it

again will help them come to terms with the experience

looking at the lobby, How did you find

the experience today? When I started walking up,

:22:32.:22:37.

I will be honest, I started filling up and I asked the police officer

:22:38.:22:41.

where was the bomber? Because I had seen him and I got

this distance, he was Yeah, I always thought

he was ten meters away, I couldn't believe that we were

actually beside the bomber I got these injuries,

but I don't feel so lucky though because knowing

he was beside me, we're still alive. It brings back,

compassionate and creative - and would have been "very

proud of her legacy". It was just before her mum's

birthday party five years ago that She had an aneurysm that had

but her parents were We had seen the scans

:24:35.:24:36.

and there was such a huge shadow on the left side of her brain

:24:37.:24:42.

and she would never ever recover. By chance Jemima had spoken

:24:43.:24:45.

to her parents about organ donation just a few days

:24:46.:24:48.

before she collapsed. When she died they felt they had

families will meet for the first time at a charity ball

organised in Jemima's memory. Her parents know that

not everyone would make the decision they did,

they're now campaigning for more of us to

register as donors. And all eyes on the Atlantic

image. It shows the sheer scale of the storm. There is Cuba, there is

Florida. Both in the path of this storm. Winds more than 150 miles

Florida. Potentially more catastrophic damage to come.

Low-pressure close to our shores this weekend. Lots of showers around

:27:27.:27:33.

at the moment. Some particularly heavy ones in southern counties.

:27:34.:27:38.

They will gradually ease away. Still showers towards the north and West.

:27:39.:27:43.

North-west England and north-west Wales, maybe the north-west of the

:27:44.:27:46.

Midlands, could see heavy bursts of lengthy rain, while central and

:27:47.:27:52.

eastern areas are clear. Further north you may be lucky enough to see

:27:53.:27:58.

glimpses of the aurora borealis. If you are heading out, wrap up well. A

:27:59.:28:02.

chilly start to the weekend. A cool weekend across the UK. Further rain

:28:03.:28:08.

at times. Through the weekend turning increasingly windy,

:28:09.:28:12.

particularly on Sunday afternoon. On Saturday we have got a dry and

:28:13.:28:16.

bright start. In the West, plenty of showers. Particularly wet in

:28:17.:28:21.

north-west England and north-west Midlands. Showers developing across

:28:22.:28:27.

England and Wales. Slow-moving showers across northern England and

:28:28.:28:31.

the Midlands. They could be heavy and sundry. Northern Ireland and

:28:32.:28:35.

Western Scotland, fewer showers than today. Even here, you will notice a

:28:36.:28:41.

chill. Skies clear for a time for the next area of low-pressure

:28:42.:28:45.

waiting in the wings. You may start off dry and bright on Sunday, but

:28:46.:28:50.

becoming cloudy with outbreaks of rain spreading east. Temperatures

:28:51.:28:56.

pretty disappointing. If anything, the winds could get stronger. The

:28:57.:29:01.

first proper autumn winds of the season. A mixture of sunshine and

:29:02.:29:06.

showers. Enjoy your weekend. That's all from the BBC News at Six,

:29:07.:29:07.

so it's goodbye from me,
