    Hurricane Irma, the largest storm on record in the Atlantic Ocean, has again been upgraded to a Category 5 system. The storm has left a trail of devastation as it makes its way through the Caribbean and towards the US state of Florida.

    The island of Saint Martin was among those hit hardest and Jose, another hurricane, is expected to also hit the island soon.
