Good Morning America Spotlights Sint Maarten/Saint Martin and Efforts to Rebuild Amid Destruction

There’s been a lot of coverage on the impact of Hurricane Irma on Sint Maarten/Saint Martin — truthfully, there can’t be enough — and I want to post a few of those up today. First is a story that Good Morning America produced, showing video of the evacuation situation from earlier this week at Princess Juliana International Airport.

In addition to coverage of the evacuations, the video also shows some of the devastation around the island and has a couple of interviews of a few people impacted by the storm.

It is not possible to overstate the devastation that Sint Maarten and Saint Martin have sustained. Please visit our donate page to find a few ideas on where and how to donate to help the island rebuild in the face of adversity.

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.
