Barbuda

In September 2017, Hurricane Irma caused extensive damage in Barbuda.  Local government officials mandated the evacuation of the island's residents to Antigua, and few have returned. Much of Barbuda’s infrastructure was destroyed; electricity and running water have yet to be restored. Antigua’s infrastructure remains largely intact.
