News Americas, TORONTO, Canada, Tues. Jan. 9, 2017: The hurricanes of 2017 may be months old already but the Canadian government is still warning its nationals to avoid “non-essential” travel to these five Caribbean nations. They are:

Travelers are being warned to avoid travel to the British Virgin Islands because Hurricanes Irma and Maria caused significant damage to buildings and infrastructures on the island. Transportation routes, power and telecommunications systems, have been heavily damaged, and, in some areas, destroyed while emergency and medical care, and water and food delivery have also been severely affected.

2: Dominica

The Canadian government is warning against travel to Dominica because of the significant damage the island suffered from Hurricane Maria.
