LOOP NEWS: The death toll in Grenada following the passage of Hurricane Beryl has increased to three.

In a national address on Tuesday morning, Prime Minister Dickon Mitchell reported two deaths on the island of Carriacou, which was directly impacted by Beryl yesterday as a strong category four storm.

One man was killed in Grenada when a tree fell on his home.

“The possibility that there may be more fatalities remains are grim reality,” Mitchell stated.

Mitchell said Carriacou and Petit Martinique are completely devastated and officials are currently unable to use heavy equipment since fuel is in short supply due to the destruction of gas stations.

The scale of devastation has been compared to Hurricane Ivan, which ravaged Grenada in 2004.

Aid is expected to be shipped Carriacou and Petit Martinique when sea conditions become safe.

Mitchell on called for Grenadians to unite as they face a long journey of recovery from Beryl.
