Perhaps the most beautiful news that U.S. citizens stranded on St. Maarten and their loved ones can hear is “it’s time to come home.” Well, it’s time to come home.
#StMaarten: US citizens in need of evac proceed to airport by 12pm Mon 9/11. Bring passport or other proof of ID. Expect long wait times.

There will be no transportation provided — that I am aware of — so everyone must get to the airport on their own. That’s obviously going to be difficult for most people, especially for those that aren’t within a short distance of the airport. If you need assistance getting to the airport you may want to call the State Department and ask for advice. I will ask them too and post their reply here.
