Hurricane Updates

Scuba Diving | Dive Training Magazine

Hurricanes Irma & Maria are powerful storms that made their 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 storms. 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.

Know of an organization helping with relief efforts that isn’t listed? Email us.
