Evacuations Continue to Flow From SXM, Commercial Service to Restart, French President Visits St Martin

The evacuations of foreigners from the island of Sint Maarten is continuing on Tuesday, with the United States, India and Brazil arranging flights off the island for their citizens.

As of now, these are the countries I am aware of that have flights today. Of course, there are likely to be more than that and I will keep my eye out for news from other countries.

French President Emmanuel Macron has arrived on the island today and is touring the damage. He has stated, “St. Martin will be reborn. I am committed.”

Commercial flights to the Caribbean islands are slowing starting back up, with the first flights by American Airlines scheduled to begin on Wednesday. Service to SXM by AA is scheduled to start on Saturday, September 16.

I fell in love with the island of Saint Martin the first time I visited to celebrate my 40th birthday in May of 2009. Since then, I've spent most birthdays there, and have visited countless other times getting to know this wonderful place and the friendly locals that make it so special. I adore the culture, the people, the community, and the beauty of this stunning island. SXM Strong is a website that I started to support humanitarian relief efforts following Hurricane Irma. There was no plan, it just evolved as I witnessed the devastation that Irma caused the island and the huge need to communicate and disseminate information about what had happened and how people could help support this island and its people.
