Crews from the USS Wasp help evacuate U.S. citizens from the island of Dominica after Hurricane Maria and helped survey damage from the storm, which made landfall as a Category 5 storm.
The chief of police in Dominica says the confirmed death toll has risen to 27 from Maria's strike on the Caribbean island. Chief Daniel Carbon told reporters Monday that the toll had risen from 15. He said another 27 were missing.
