The First Secretary of State, Damian Green, chaired a COBR meeting this afternoon to discuss the Government’s response to Hurricane Irma and preparations for Hurricane Maria.

We remain concerned that Hurricane Maria, which is strengthening as it approaches the Leeward Islands, could hit the UK’s Overseas Territories in the Caribbean already affected as well as Montserrat.

FCO, DFID and military teams are working closely with the Governors in the Overseas Territories to ensure we are doing all we can to support the Governments of the islands affected.
