(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) The Dutch military provided aid to the Dutch side of the Saint Martin island in the Caribbean after Hurricane Irma killed five and left a trail of destruction behind. Packing winds of around 175 mph (290 kph), the storm lashed several small islands in the northeast Caribbean, including St Martin and St Barthelemy, tearing down trees, flattening homes and causing widespread damage. Government officials in the Netherlands said the hurricane had caused enormous devastation on the Dutch side of the island, killing one person and injuring several others. Sint Maarten, as it is known in Dutch, is an independent nation within the Kingdom of the Netherlands with a population of around 40,000 people, about the same as on the French side of the island.
