Gov't assisting Jamaicans in Turks and Caicos Islands ahead of Hurricane Irma

The Bahamas a nation of about 390,000 ordered evacuations ahead of Irma's arrival for six southern islands- Mayaguana Inagua Crooked Island Acklins Long Cay and Ragged Island

Cea Cohen Elliott of Beavercreek said her son is stranded in Turks and Caicos.

She said he has agreed to open a school to be used as a shelter to house the Jamaicans.

"We started calling American Airlines and they started saying there are no flights out", Kitten recalled.

Lowry and her vacation mates were fortified somewhat by talking to residents who'd experienced several hurricanes before. "At that point it was saying, 'If you can make arrangements to leave, ' but at that point it was nearly too late", she said.

Gov't assisting Jamaicans in Turks and Caicos Islands ahead of Hurricane Irma

Mr. Misick has been campaigning for the islands to become independent of Britain and says there is no reason why they could not be as successful as neighboring Saint Kitts and Nevis, which was granted independence in 1983.

1 World is already looking into how it can use its funds to help the Turks and Caicos recover from Irma. We were very lucky in that sense in that she didn't have to stay in hospital. A meteorologist told Sputnik if hurricanes continue to pound low-lying islands, they may reach a point when the inhabitants decide to abandon them. The eyewall - where winds are strongest - swerved and narrowly avoided Providenciales on Thursday night, although structures on the islands are destroyed, power is out and there is flooding.

Another problem for Chamberlain and Loren is Hurricane Jose, a Category 4 storm with winds up to 150 miles per hour that is now east of the Lesser Antilles islands. Hurricane Irma has also left catastrophic damage as it passed over Turks and Caicos, southern Bahamas, northern Dominican Republic and northern Haiti. Jose remains a unsafe category 4 hurricane as it moves closer to the Northern Leeward Islands.

Chamberlain said she plans to check on their flight Saturday while Loren's family is trying to get a charter flight to pick them up.
