2 During September 2017, Hurricanes Irma and Maria caused significant damage to our operations in Puerto Rico, as well as certain geographies within C& W, including the British Virgin Islands and Dominica, resulting in disruptions to our telecommunications services within these islands. As we are still in the process of assessing the operational impacts of the hurricanes, we are unable to accurately estimate our homes passed and subscriber numbers as of March 31, 2018. Accordingly, the March 31, 2018 subscriber numbers for these markets reflect subscriber amounts as of August 31, 2017 as adjusted through March 31, 2018 for (i) net voluntary disconnects and (ii) disconnects related to customers whose accounts are delinquent. The Liberty Puerto Rico homes passed reflect the August 31, 2017 levels adjusted for approximately 30,000 homes in geographic areas we may not rebuild. As of March 31, 2018, we have been able to restore service to approximately 560,000 RGUs of our total 723,100 RGUs at Liberty Puerto Rico. Additionally, services to most of our fixed-line customers have not yet been restored in the British Virgin Islands and Dominica.
