‘Nuclear landscape’ in Caribbean after hurricane

Along with voicing feelings of abandonment, island residents spoke of widespread scarcity, the generosity of neighbors, looting and machete-armed volunteers standing guard over properties.
Hurricane Irma struck a patchwork of independent island nations and territories in various forms of association with France, the Netherlands, the US and the UK and killed at least 44 people in the Caribbean.

“This is the most extraordinary scene of decimation and devastation that many people have witnessed in their lives,” UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told CNN Wednesday as he toured Tortola, the largest of the British Virgin Islands.
“It really is a nuclear landscape.”

US and Europe step up assistance

US and European governments have responded to the disaster by stepping up support for their territories and former colonies, sending ships with food, water, medical supplies and aid experts.
The US Federal Emergency Management Agency said it has dispatched nearly 443,000 meals, 270,000 liters of water and other supplies to St. Thomas and St. John.
The US Army Corps of Engineers is assessing the main hospital on St. Thomas, according to the defense department. The corps is also helping ship a 750-kilowatt generator to St. Thomas to restart the island’s power plant.
Still, many residents feel overlooked.
“We’re just waiting,” said Mike Simmonds, whose St. Thomas home since 1985 sustained severe damage. “I wouldn’t say (for) help. One thing I can say for the weather report … whenever there’s a storm in the area, they always seem to jump over the Virgin Islands before the storm hits. It’s always, ‘Is it going to hit Florida? Is it going to North Carolina?’ I’m like, ‘Hello. It didn’t reach us yet. Tell us what to do.'”

‘We do feel forgotten’

Anne Bequette, a wedding photographer in St. John, told CNN Wednesday that the smallest of the US Virgin islands will take years to rebuild.
“I understand that in Florida all are hurting as well and my heart goes out to all of those affected,” she said. “But I’ve heard from some in the States that they’re looking at a few weeks without power. We’re looking at next year.”
The US territory has been largely abandoned in the aftermath of the deadly storm, she said.
“We do feel forgotten,” she said. “We’re being completely overlooked. I feel like St. John is just a dot on the map to some people. There are so many lives down here that need help from you guys and from the States.”
In the absence of federal emergency assistance, Bequette said, locals have banded together to clear roads and undertake other post-storm tasks.
“We need food. We need water. We need propane for generators. We need tons of resources and medical supplies,” she said. “There are women with broken hips being turned away from the clinic because they’re not a life-or-death situation right now.”
Adam Marlatt, the founder of Global Disaster Immediate Response Team, had a stark assessment speaking from St. John, which is part of the US Virgin Islands.
“The biggest problem,” he said, was “not just debris but getting people off the island because there’s no sustainable option for them.”
He said virtually 100% of the power infrastructure is damaged or destroyed and that every power line over the roads was down. Marlatt said plans to restore normalcy hadn’t begun yet because they were busy trying to chainsaw through and search for people who may be stuck inside their homes.
