This Travel Warning is being issued to urge U.S. citizens to carefully consider the potential risk of travel to The Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands at this time due to the threat posed by Hurricane Irene. The Department of State has authorized the departure, on a voluntary basis, of family members of U.S. Embassy personnel.

U.S. citizens in areas likely to be impacted by Hurricane Irene who do not have access to adequate and safe shelter should consider departing until the storm has passed while commercial transportation is available and ports are open. U.S. citizens staying in The Bahamas or the Turks and Caicos despite this Travel Warning should locate shelter, monitor media reports, and follow all official instructions. Visitors to The Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos should be familiar with their hotel or cruise ship evacuation plans, policies, or procedures.
