URGENT Message for ALL U.S. Citizens ! get to ...
      #1744892 - 09/11/17 12:11 AM (70.38.11.90)

Go to the Dutch-side AIRPORT (PJIA) by Noon on Monday, Sept 11th if you want to be evacuated!

"The Department of State is working with the Department of Defense to continue evacuation flights on September 11. U.S. citizens desiring to leave should proceed to the airport to arrive by noon on Monday carrying their U.S. passport or other proof of U.S. citizenship and identity. Passengers may be allowed carry on one small bag. Medications and any other essential items should be carried on your person.

Note, passengers arriving at St Maarten Airport should expect long wait times. There is no running water at the airport and very limited shelter.


The Department of State has received information that Royal Caribbean Cruise Line ship near the port of Sint Maarten has departed. Contact the cruise line directly with any questions at [Email]stormhelp@rccl.com.[/Email]

U.S. citizens in need of evacuation on Sint Maarten should shelter in place until Monday, listen to 101.1 FM radio for updates."

According to Laser 101.1, there is a Delta Flight going to Atlanta on Tuesday, as well as a Jetblue Flight going to JFK on Tuesday. Limit one piece of luggage. Just need your US passport or Green Card if applicable.

I would really really keep checking on the Atlanta flight. ( IF that is possible)

An update from the U.S. Govt:

"This is confirmation that U.S. evacuation flights are continuing today. All U.S. citizens requiring evacuation should proceed immediately to the airport. Please take water and expect delays."

Just a warning if you take the military flights, you will be responsible for the reimbursing the United States government for the cost associated with your evacuation. You will need to sign a promissory note before boarding the aircraft.

From State Department Website:

NOTE: If you receive evacuation assistance, you are required to sign a promissory note agreeing to reimburse the government for some of the evacuation costs. Itís the law.

Doesn't that beat staying in some place you want to get out of?

This is pure bullshit! The U S Air Force NEVER charges people we rescue!

We are charged with protecting and defending our citizens, ...saving them during disasters is part of our job!

It's happening. Here is the Article with a picture of the form they are being asked to sign. There is also a link to the form that was obtained for a FOIA request. They say its a law going back to 1956.
