    Is there any hope for getting ppl off the island? There are thousands of ppl lining up at the airport (with no ac or water) every morning to be sent out every night when curfew begins. The shelters are packed and businesses arent accepting cc so cash is running out. We are all having flights cancelled left and right and are told that FEMA is in charge of who gets out. The earliest we have been given is Oct 6th. And thats not a guarantee.

      I know that work is being done to try to get a power generator in to bring the radar service back online for the air traffic control services (https://twitter.com/AirlineFlyer/status/912503333167931392). Without that operational the operations are way more limited. I also know that a lot of the flight operations are cargo, not passenger, because of the uncertainty about the operations. There are passenger planes coming in now a handful of times each day but even the largest only carry a couple hundred people. It is really hard to move that many people quickly.

    I know that defense contractors are working overtime to help however they can, be it generators, airlift, portable communication infrastructure.
