Dominica turned into a 'giant debris field' by Hurricane Maria

Hurricane Maria has killed at least 33 people so far, with the bulk of those deaths happening on the tiny island of Dominica.

At least 80 percent of the buildings there have been damaged and most communication lines cut.

The people of this island nation of 71,000 are desperate, and some are still in shock.

The floodwaters took out the island's power lines, so there has been no electricity for a week.

Aside from the homes, schools, and other buildings, markets were also flattened, leaving little food for the population.
