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.
#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.
