In September 2017, Hurricanes Irma and Maria, two of the most powerful storms ever recorded in the Atlantic basin, plummeted the Caribbean islands causing wide-spread damage to logistical infrastructure and power, telecommunications and water services across multiple countries. Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, St Martin/Sint Marteen, the British Virgin Islands, and Turks and Caicos have been identified as the most affected country.

To-date, there has been no official request for cluster activation. Logistics Sectors however, are currently operating at several key locations across the Caribbean to support regional disaster management mechanisms, local authorities, and humanitarian organisations with logistical coordination, cargo consolidation and information management services. This page has been launched as an information sharing platform for all humanitarian responders operating in the region.
