US NPs in Caribbean continue slow recovery from hurricanes

Chainsaws have been getting quite the workout in the Caribbean, where National Park Service crews have been cutting and stacking wood as they've cleared roads and trails at Virgin Islands National Park and at other National Park System units there.

Though it's been more than a month since Hurricanes Irma and Maria delivered a one-two punch to the Caribbean parks, the road to recovery is slow. Along with clearing downed trees, crews are busy assessing road damage, sunken vessels, water-damaged facilities, and an electrical grid that needs to be rebuilt.
