The first footage showing the trail of destruction wrought by Hurricane Maria on Dominica has emerged – revealing homes and businesses to have been razed to the ground by the 200mph winds.

Having passed over the tiny Caribbean island on Tuesday and wiped out all communication, video shows scored of damaged houses over the town of Portsmouth on the mountainous island, surrounded by scraps of debris.

Six deaths have so far been reported on the island which suffered ‘mind-boggling’ devastation after the Category 5 storm barreled over.

It was captured by a CBC cameraman on a military aid flight over the stricken country in a first attempt at a massive aid operation.

Due to the widespread chaos, the airplane found nowhere to land and was forced to return to its base in Barbados.
