Caribbean NPs in line to be hit by another hurricane

With work continuing to get Virgin Islands National Park back on its feet after Hurricane Irma, another hurricane appeared to be bearing down on the Caribbean.

The national park, hardest hit of all National Park System units in the Caribbean by Irma, is not alone in the path of Maria, which was a tropical storm Sunday but expected to evolve into a hurricane by the time it reaches the Caribbean. Also in the path Sunday were Buck Island Reef National Monument, Virgin Islands Coral Reef National Monument, San Juan National Historic Site, Christiansted National Historic Site, and Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve.
