• United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres will travel to Antigua and Barbuda and Dominica on 7 October to survey the damage and to assess what more the United Nations can do to help.

• Education needs assessments in Dominica cite 18,500 school-aged children are out of school and 57 Government primary and secondary schools were damaged or destroyed.
