Hurricane Maria tore through the island of Dominica Monday night, the storm’s first landfall. Maria was a Category 5 when it hit Dominica, slowed to Category 4 but became a Category 5 again Tuesday morning, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Authorities on Dominica are attempting to assess the damage caused by Maria. Around 73,000 people live on the island.

“Initial reports are of widespread devastation,” said the island nation’s Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit on Facebook. “So far we have lost all what money can buy and replace. My greatest fear for the morning is that we will wake to news of serious physical injury and possible deaths as a result of likely landslides triggered by persistent rains.”

Skerrit said he is focused more on his people.

“I am honestly not preoccupied with physical damage at this time, because it is devastating … indeed, mind boggling,” said Skerritt.

The Prime Minister himself had to be rescued from the storm.

“My roof is gone. I am at the complete mercy of the hurricane. House is flooding,” said Skerritt on Facebook before confirming he had been rescued.

Dominica missed most of the brunt of Hurricane Irma which had already caused widespread havoc in the Caribbean earlier this month. Many people from nearby St. Martin were seeking refuge on Dominica after their island was hit by Irma.

Maria next heads towards Puerto Rico and the U.S. and British Virgin Islands who are bracing for another historic storm.
