U.S. State Department Announces Plans to Evacuate All U.S. Citizens on Monday

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.

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.

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.
