(Turks and Caicos) - Hurricane Maria did not make a significant difference to the circumstances on the ground in TCI.  There were some additional utility poles that fell but most of them were damaged by hurricane Irma and already needed to be replaced.  Captain Derick Miller reports that Providenciales is still without electricity.  The Army is continuing to deliver meals to those in shelters, however persons who were in schools that served as shelters have now been moved to several large tents on a ball field. 

(The Bahamas) - Friday afternoon, TSA finished providing meals for hurricane evacuees from the family Islands.  These persons have now either returned to their home to assess the damage or have found accommodations with family & friends in Nassau.  TSA will continue to work with NEMA regarding assisting with the needs of persons who have returned to the family islands.
