One man, Skerrit said, walked 21 miles into the capital of Roseau to receive his treatment.

He added the island is "going to need all the help the world has to offer". At least 20 of the island's 72,000 residents are missing, he said.

He said east Dominica was severely battered, "in the extreme south a community has been cut off and communities in the rainforest have been declared a disaster zone".

Skerrit made a humble appeal global help, saying, "We need all the help that the world can offer, as small as it is...we need tarpaulins, drinking water, food, baby formula and lumber among many other items".

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said during a Thursday interview with a ABS television in Antigua that the death toll of 15 is likely to rise as rescuers make contact with isolated villages. "Many of our schools have been destroyed".

"[I will] speak to the worldwide community [and] have meetings with the UN Secretary-General to outline Dominica's situation and how we believe the global community can assist us". "We are deeply appreciative that again we have been spared the third hurricane in succession", said prime minister Timothy Harris.

"We will not leave any stone unturned". That is one of our major concerns. This financing also assists in reducing countries' vulnerability to future disasters.
