The Barbados Defence Force, with the assistance of the Regional Security System Headquarters, has organised the evacuation of Barbadians from St Maarten.
The BDF made the announcement this morning, noting that further information will be provided as it becomes available.
It is not known exactly how many Barbadians have been trapped in St Maarten since the devastating passage of Hurricane Irma on September 6.
Siblings Sabrina and Shane Weekes, both teachers, were among those stranded along with Nico and Naomi Mayers and their two children.
On Sunday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs put out an urgent call for contact information for Barbadians who wished to return home.
Contact information and any other relevant data concerning Barbadians who are on the island of St Martin should be sent, as a matter of urgency, to one of the following email addresses: email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. (NB/PR)
