dc.description.abstract In this report hurricane Luis is heading towards the Leeward Islands and Antigua is expecting to take the full brunt. The residents of Montserrat and St. Martin are frantically preparing and bracing themselves for the full fury of the hurricane. Meanwhile in Dominica, residents are scrambling to get to a state of preparedness. Montserrat's Governor Frank Savage comments on the island's volcanic activity and the decision to allow people to return to some evacuated areas. In St. Lucia, the report by the government-appointed commission of inquiry into the UN funds scandal has been made public. Pete Ninvalle reports on the team's conclusions. The first day of the UN Women Conference in Beijing opened with a spectacular launch. Representatives from governments and women's organizations of the Caribbean are in attendance. Women of Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad are interviewed about their hopes for a concrete outcome from the conference. en_US
