For Caribbean and Florida residents, cruisers, and for all those who hold these places dear, any news coming out of the Keys, BVI, USVI, Puerto Rico, St. Maarten, St. Barths, Anguilla and Barbuda, has been hard to look at since the destruction looks to be so widespread. Spotty communications is currently making it hard to get up-to-date information and images. We have compiled a list of useful sites and social media groups that are updated regularly for the latest news.
To everyone in the extended Cruising World family who has been impacted by this year's series of tropical events, our thoughts are with you, and we hope you the best as you try and regroup and recover.
In the coming days, check back here for updates on relief efforts and how you can help. If you have any news, updates, or photos to share, you can post in the Cruising World Caribbean & Florida Cruisers group on our Facebook page or send an email to senior editor Jen Brett at (firstname.lastname@example.org).
