• The Forgotten Americans: Why Did U.S. Media Ignore U.S. Virgin Islands Devastated by Irma?

    https://democracynow.org - Hurricane Irma made landfall in the U.S. Virgin Islands as a Category 5 storm just over one week ago, knocking out electricity and running water, and cutting off communications with the outside world. Now, Governor Kenneth Mapp says the islands of Saint John and Saint Thomas are still nearly entirely without power. The hurricane also destroyed schools and the main hospital on Saint Thomas. The devastation was so extensive, it can be seen from space. Earlier this week, a U.S. military amphibious ship arrived on Saint Thomas ladened with equipment and supplies. The islands have also received emergency aid from residents of the nearby island of Puerto Rico, where volunteers banded together to collect supplies and transport them on dozens of ships. But while Hurrican...

    Seven days after Hurricane Irma devastated two of the three major U.S. Virgin Islands, access to communication lines and critical supplies remain spotty and residents across the islands’ do not know how long recovery will take or what it will cost. The U.S. Virgin Islands are typically thought of as lush tourist getaways in the Caribbean. But the hills have turned brown. Many of the islands’ approximately 100,000 residents, who are American citizens on American soil, insist that the Category 5 storm was unlike anything they’ve weathered before.

https://democracynow.org - Hurricane Irma made landfall in the U.S. Virgin Islands as a Category 5 storm just over one week ago, knocking out electricity and running water, and cutting off communications with the outside world. Now, Governor Kenneth Mapp says the islands of Saint John and Saint Thomas are still nearly entirely without power. The hurricane also destroyed schools and the main hospital on Saint Thomas. The devastation was so extensive, it can be seen from space. Earlier this week, a U.S. military amphibious ship arrived on Saint Thomas ladened with equipment and supplies. The islands have also received emergency aid from residents of the nearby island of Puerto Rico, where volunteers banded together to collect supplies and transport them on dozens of ships. But while Hurricane Irma hit the U.S. Virgin Islands days before it made landfall on the Florida Keys, the Virgin Islands have been largely forgotten in the wall-to-wall U.S. media coverage of the storm. And that omission is even more striking given that the U.S. Virgin Islands are in the midst of celebrating their centennial as U.S. territory. We speak with Saint Thomas native Tiphanie Yanique, award-winning poet and novelist. She’s an associate professor in the English Department at Wesleyan University and the author of the poetry collection "Wife" and the novel "Land of Love and Drowning."

"St. Thomas and St. John are pretty devastated," Rep. Stacey Plaskett, the Virgin Islands' delegate to Congress, told USA TODAY. "We've had houses slamming into other houses." Irma's fierce winds ripped off the roof of the Roy Schneider Medical Center on St. Thomas, and the local authorities were working Thursday to evacuate patients to the island of St. Croix via helicopter, Plaskett said. No fatalities have been reported, but Plaskett said officials still are assessing damage. The islands' 911 emergency system is down, she said, and still-rough seas and damage to St. Thomas' airport also complicate recovery efforts. Officials are working to clear the runway of debris. "We are islands," she said. "There are not just trucks that can roll in to help us." On Thursday afternoon, President Trump approved a disaster declaration for the territory, a step designed to speed federal aid to St. Thomas and St. John. STORY FROM LENDINGTREE The 411 on reverse mortgages Residents who still had Internet access took to social media to report lashing winds as the storm spun over St. Thomas and a wrecked landscape of twisted galvanized roofing, smashed cars and toppled trees in Irma's aftermath. These islands, a tourist mecca often called America's Paradise, have been hit by powerful hurricanes before, most notably Hurricane Hugo in 1989 and Hurricane Marilyn in 1995. "Irma made Hurricanes Hugo and Marilyn look like a passing shower," Steve Rockstein, a photographer and documentary filmmaker who lives on St. Thomas, told USA TODAY on Thursday via Facebook. "This was ominous throughout, but when the eye wall hit, it was absolutely terrifying," he said. Relatives of Virgin Islanders took to Facebook, including USVI Hurricane Irma Alert, seeking updates on family members. St. Croix, the largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, lies roughly 40 miles south of St. Thomas and sustained far less damage, although residents report downed trees and power outages. Three U.S. Navy vessels — the USS Wasp, USS Kearsarge and USS Oak Hill — have been sent to help the relief efforts, U.S. Navy officials said Thursday in a statement. Wasp was the first to arrive near the Virgin Islands, and its helicopters are helping evacuate critically ill patients from St. Thomas to St. Croix and assess hurricane damage from the air, officials said. Irma's winds and rain have left a path of destruction throughout the islands of the Caribbean. The Associated Press reported that Britain's Foreign Minister Alan Duncan said Anguilla, one of its island territories, took the full brunt of Irma and the British Virgin Islands sustained "severe damage." Tiny Barbuda, with a population of roughly 1,400, was "literally rubble" after the storm, Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne told ABS TV/Radio Antigua. Haiti and the Turks and Caicos islands have been preparing for the arrival of Hurricane Irma, which has left a trail of destruction across the Caribbean. Poverty-stricken Haiti is seen as particularly vulnerable as its infrastructure has yet to recover from a devastating earthquake in 2010. Low-lying Turks and Caicos is said to be at risk of a storm surge, with the possibility of destructive waves up to 6m (20ft) higher than usual. Irma is a category five hurricane. This is the highest possible level for a hurricane, and its winds are travelling at up to 185mph (290km/h). At least 10 people have already died in the region. The small island of Barbuda is said to be "barely habitable". Officials warn that St Martin is almost destroyed, and the death toll is likely to rise. Irma has passed the Dominican Republic and is now brushing Haiti. It is expected to hit the the Turks and Caicos on Thursday evening. In pictures: Irma ravages Caribbean It is that could rise sharply to 26 million, the Red Cross says. "Our worst fears have played out in Barbuda and elsewhere," Walte

Compiled by the media team of the African-Caribbean Reparations and Resettlement Alliance (ACRRA) http://www.acrra.org, this short, informative documentary video highlights the historical relationship between Denmark, the Danish West Indies colony, and now, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the associated human tragedy. Featuring footage from a number of events organized by the Virgin Islands Reparations Movement, this video makes a very compelling argument for slavery reparations.

The Climate & Health U.S. Virgin Islands Media Campaign includes three television PSAs: 60-Second "Overview", 30-Second "Ciguatera", and 30-Second "Dengue". This public service advertisement campaign was created to educate U.S. Virgin Islands residents about the linkages between climate change and health. It alerts the population of the possibilities of increased outbreaks of ciguatera (fish poisoning) and dengue fever which may occur as a result of the climate changes. The Climate and Health media campaign was presented by the University of the Virgin Islands Caribbean Exploratory Research Center, funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities in collaboration with the University of the Virgin Islands, and was produced by Digital Media Solutions in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Additional footage provided by PAHO Archives (Pan American Health Organization) and the Virgin Islands Public Television System WTJX Channel 12. The entire media campaign can be viewed at www.myhealthwhatsclimategottodowithit.com
