Travel for them, PAHO, DFID, UNDAC was facilitated by TCIG today into Grand Turk. Fortis got more lights up in Providenciales today. Water is also up in some areas.

Evacuees from Salt Cay are eager to return and check on their properties. TCIG is organizing to get the Ferry Services back up and running. Tropical will bring in the first boat of relief items into Provo tonight and then onto Grand Turk tomorrow.
Heard from Chairman of Caricom today. A Caricom Team will visit. St Lucia has agreed to take a few of our Prisoners. Passenger operations have resumed for international and domestic flights. Operations are manual for now.
