The situation in these areas changes so quickly that it is very hard to accurately report on progress made towards recovery. Despite the tragic reports of loss, there are also so many uplifting stories of people helping each other, physically, financially, materially and emotionally. The human spirit is itself a force of nature.
The Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) is doing an amazing job as a clearinghouse of information, providing updates about each country, their infrastructure, transportation, and resorts. http://www.onecaribbean.org/cto-storm-watch-centre
In addition, they have a fundraising campaign: www.gofundme.com/hurricane-relief-fund-cto
The Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association (CHTA) is also providing up-to-date news and information about hurricane recovery in all of the affected regions. Their website provides information about several specific fundraising efforts. www.caribbeanhotelandtourism.com/knowledge-center/hurricane-center
To keep tourism dollars flowing to the Caribbean, their round-up of areas with and without hurricane damage is informative, and updated regularly. http://caribbeantravelupdate.com

Our thoughts are also with Mexico, where several states and cities were heavily damaged by earthquakes, and California where hundreds of thousands of acres were burned by wildfires.
