Hurricane Irma path: Which countries have been affected?

Deadly Hurricane Irma has already caused major damage - and several countries in its path are yet to feel its effects.

The most powerful Atlantic storm ever recorded is still due to hit Haiti, Cuba and the Bahamas, and is expected in Florida and Georgia by Sunday.

At least 14 people have been killed as Irma ripped through the Caribbean .

Here is more about Irma's path of destruction so far:

:: Antigua and Barbuda

These islands were the first to be hit by Irma.

A two-year-old was killed on Barbuda as a family tried to escape a damaged home during the storm.

Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne told Sky News the "carnage in Barbuda is unprecedented".

About half of the island's 1,800 residents have been left homeless, and 90% of its buildings have suffered damage.

Although gusts reached speeds of 230mph in Barbuda, the damage in Antigua has been described as "nominal, to the extent that it is business as usual".

:: St Martin, Anguilla and St Barts

Four people have died on the French side of St Martin, according to French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe.

The Dutch Royal Navy said "enormous damage" had been caused on the Dutch side of the island, where at least one person died.

Many houses are missing roofs and hotels are underwater, it added.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said the storm had been of "epic proportions", causing "widescale destruction of infrastructure, houses and businesses".

"There is no power, no gasoline, no running water," he said.

Mr Rutte described how some residents "are sitting in the dark in ruined houses and are cut off from the outside world".

St Martin and Anguilla experienced heavy rain and winds of up to 185mph.

Foreign Office minister Sir Alan Duncan said "severe and in places critical" damage has been seen on Anguilla.

He told MPs that the British overseas territory had taken the full force of the hurricane, and there were "unconfirmed reports of a number of fatalities".

The Caribbean Disaster Management Agency said at least one person had died and 90% of the island's roads were impassible. Anguilla's hospital and airport have also suffered damage, as have power lines.

In St Barts, damage has been described as "apocalyptic" following winds of 151mph.

:: US Virgin Islands

Authorities said three people died after Irma caused what they called "catastrophic" damage.

The deaths occurred in the St Thomas and St John districts. Officials said crews were clearing many inaccessible roads.

:: British Virgin Islands

Sir Alan Duncan said the islands had suffered "severe damage".

Sir Richard Branson, whose Necker Island is within the group, said he and friends had "experienced a night of howling wind and rain as Hurricane Irma edges ever closer".

His son Sam Branson said on social media: "Glad to say that all humans on Necker are ok although a lot of buildings destroyed."

In a blog post, Sir Richard described the atmosphere as "eerie but beautiful".

The British entrepreneur and his guests were using a concrete wine cellar as a shelter.

"I suspect there will be little wine left in the cellar when we all emerge," he said.

:: Puerto Rico

Four deaths were reported in Puerto Rico.

Winds of 100mph left at least 900,000 people without power and nearly 50,000 without water.

An economic crisis has led to major funding and staffing cuts at the public power company.

That being the case, the power supply may not be restored for up to six months.

:: Dominican Republic and Haiti

Irma's wind strength dipped to 175mph as she soaked the northern coasts of the Dominican Republic and Haiti on Thursday.

:: Turks and Caicos Islands

The hurricane hit this area early on Friday UK time bringing winds of around 175mph.
