(Before It's News)

Maria blew up from a tropical storm into a major Category 5 hurricane in barely more than a day, bearing down on Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands with catastrophic winds so strong that some areas could be uninhabitable for months, forecasters warned Monday night.

Maria made landfall on Dominica, an island of 72,000 people in the Lesser Antilles, at 9:15 p.m. ET, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said. The island’s prime minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, wrote on Facebook that his roof was gone, that his home was flooded and that he was “at the complete mercy of the hurricane.” A few minutes later, he reported that he had been rescued.
