Update on St Maarten/St Martin, U.S. & Dutch Citizens Evacuating as Jose Bears Down (Video/Photos)

I wanted to put together a quick update of the information I have seen and heard so far. It has been confirmed that the United States military has sent multiple planes today with supplies for the island and are flying U.S. and Dutch citizens off the island. Here are some tweets and video.

Here is an excellent Facebook video post and video:

It appears that Laser 101 FM may no longer be on the air. No word on when they will be back up but likely after Hurricane Jose passes.

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.
