At least 60 people have been killed across the region, including over 30 in the Dominican Republic and 13 in Haiti.

Across the two countries hundreds of people have been injured and major damage inflicted on homes and farms.

Noel is currently over the Bahamas and may intensify to hurricane strength this evening.
