Hurricane Irma Updates

NOAA Photo

Hurricane Irma is a powerful storm making its way through the Caribbean and the southern United States, including many of our beloved dive destinations. We have compiled a list of local news and government resources from the areas in the path of the storm. Please visit their sites for reports from the ground in each location. We will continue to update this page with additional links to updates and ways you can help as they become available.
