Saba Government on Facebook: no deaths have been reported on Saba

As of 3.30 p.m. local time, no deaths have been reported on Saba and only a few wounded. There has been a lot of structural damage.

Satel is working hard on restoring telecommunication services to Saba. Local landlines are slowly being restored. Outgoing international calls are reportedly possible. Saba seems not to be able to receive incoming international calls.

After Irma Update:

On behalf of Governor Johnson, I would like to inform you that the crisis team has met again. A damage assessment is underway and teams are cleaning up. The curfew has been lifted. People can start or continue cleaning. We advise you not to remove the shutters or boards on your house as more weather may be coming. We ask all people to go inside after dark. People who need shelter can go to the shelters in The Bottom or Windwardside for this night.

More information about the shelters will follow tomorrow.

  1. I tried four different phone numbers, both land line and cell phone at 11:00 O-clock September 7th 2017.
    The result was always the same. About 45 seconds of silence and then the message, “The number you have dialed is not in service,” My best wishes to you all. Christopher Smith

  2. I spent a lovely week there with my brother in late May and had a wonderful experience. The scenery, the people, tbe food, and even the little goats were remarkable. I am so sorry to hear of the devastation and thankful that no lives were lost!
