Five people were killed in the British Virgin Islands as a result of Hurricane Irma and another died in Anguilla, officials said Saturday as the Caribbean territories braced for another mega storm.

"There have been five confirmed fatalities," said a statement from the government of the BVI, while a police office in Anguilla told AFP by telephone that a man had been crushed by his house.
