Pictured: Islanders go about their daily lives amongst the carnage caused by Hurricane Anguilla.

Task Force Anguilla has deployed forward from the Headquarters element in Barbados to help enable local recovery and establish governance on the Island. Meeting the Governor of Anguilla Tim Foy upon landing, troops have now begun reconnaissance of some of the worst hit areas and places in need of reconstruction. By assessing current infrastructure whilst concurrently contributing to the security of the people of Anguilla, the task force aims to bring reassurance to all those affected during this time of great need.
