Dominica Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit posted live updates on Facebook as his Caribbean home was being destroyed by Hurricane Maria.

The category five storm lashed the island on Monday night. In a series of posts on social media, Skerrit relayed his own alarming experience of the devastating storm.

“The winds are merciless! We shall survive by the grace of God,” Skerrit wrote as Maria pummelled the landscape.

Things escalated when Skerrit’s own roof was claimed by the relentless gusts.

“I am at the complete mercy of the hurricane. House is flooding,” he wrote.

The Facebook posts generated significant reaction online with many expressing concern for the prime minister and for others at the mercy of the storm.

“If the Prime Minister’s roof is gone, can you imagine the folks whose houses are poorly built. Praying for everyone in DA. Stay safe,” commenter Adohr Jagessar-Noel Omg said.
