The Hurricane Irma confirmed death toll in the U.S. stood at 31 on Thursday, and at least 44 in the Caribbean after 10 bodies were found in Cuba, but searching still continued on hard-hit islands and in the Florida keys.

According to The Dutch Red Cross, more than 200 people were still listed as missing on St. Maarten, the Dutch side of St. Martin, The Weather Channel reported.

CNN reported that 11 people died in the French territories, 10 in Cuba, five in the British Virgin Islands, five in the US Virgin Islands, four in Anguilla, four in St. Maarten, three in Puerto Rico, one in Haiti, and one in Barbuda.

As of Thursday, ABC News reported, the 31 confirmed U.S. deaths were spread across three states. The Florida toll increased to 24 with the eight people who died in a Hollywood nursing home after the storm knocked out air conditioning.

In Monroe County, officials reported seven deaths had occurred there during the storm, but they were unable to confirm how many of them were directly related to Irma.

UPI reported that four people had died in South Caroline and three were killed in Georgia when the storm passed through the area.

Cuba's civil defense authorities told Al Jazeera that the deaths were linked to a number of causes resulting from the storm, including accidents, collapsed buildings and residents refusing to evacuate their homes.
