A state of emergency was declared in both Grand Turk and South Caicos earlier this week but there has been very little information on the level of impact on the ground.

Now, a new aerial video has been released and gives a comprehensive view of Grand Turk in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.

Posted to Facebook by Shaun Malcolm, it shows that significant damage has been done in some areas but many homes and building held strong despite the intense weather conditions.

This will no doubt be very reassuring to anyone hoping to check in on their properties or the homes of loved ones on the island.
