As airports in the path of Hurricane Irma tentatively reopen, on Monday, a high-level OECS delegation made preliminary visits to the OECS Member States most affected by the powerful Category 5 storm to assess first-hand the damage and immediate needs of the hurricane ravaged islands.

Leading the delegation were OECS Chair and Prime Minister of St Lucia Allen Chastanet; Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Dominica Roosevelt Skerrit; Minister of Economic Affairs in St Lucia Guy Joseph; OECS Director General Dr Didacus Jules, and Director of the Saint Lucia National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) Velda Joseph.
