We are considering every option to assist U.S. citizens in St. Martin, in close coordination with Dutch and French partners.
Hurricane Jose is predicted to pass near St. Martin on Saturday, which has severely limited the window for safe departures.
The airport remains closed to commercial traffic. U.S. citizens in St. Martin should not go to the airport until they have departure plans. We are in contact with U.S. citizens needing assistance in St. Martin and will advise them if we are able to assist them in departing.
U.S. citizens should follow the instructions provided by local authorities and call 911 locally if they require immediate assistance.
