Situation Report # 1 for IOMs response to the Hurricanes Irma and Jose

Published 13 September 2017

 The worst affected islands by Hurricanes Irma and Jose are Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, the British Virgin Islands, Cuba, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Martin, Sint Maarten, and
the Turks and Caicos.

 Affected populations are mostly in need of WASH, food, shelter/NFIs, and health and infrastructure assistance. Needs for protection, logistics, and education have also been identified in some affected islands.

 IOM has deployed a surge team of six experts to support efforts led by various country offices in the affected region. The team has expertise in Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM), displacement tracking, shelter management, gender-based violence risk reduction, and NFI/shelter operations. Based in the coordination hub in Barbados and at regional level in Panama, surge experts have already been deployed to the affected islands to conduct assessments.
