Irma death toll in St Maarten climbs to four
The Hague: Four people are now known to have died in the Dutch Caribbean island of Sint Maarten when it was hit by Hurricane Irma, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said Sunday.
"Unfortunately, there were two more victims that we did not know about earlier," Rutte told reporters, adding the death toll from Wednesday's storm in the Dutch part of St Martin was now four. But he added there had been "no new damage" caused by Jose which whipped past the island shared with France late Saturday.
