Situation Report # 2 for IOMs response to the Hurricane season in the Caribbean 2017

As of 20 September, IOM surge team members are present in the regional coordination hub in Panama and the two most affected Leeward Islands - Antigua and Sint Maarten. While conducting assessments on the needs of affected populations, the surge team also supports local authorities and humanitarian actors to adequately implement preparedness and response activities through technical expertise and training. As soon as humanitarian access is secured, the surge team will continue to assess the impact of Hurricane Maria in close coordination with the United Nations Disaster Assessment and Coordination (UNDAC)/Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).
