Bahamas Devastated by Hurricane Dorian
« on: September 08, 2019, 05:43:48 PM »
These photos show part of the damage that the Bahamas suffered on Abaco Island





There is practically nothing left. It is estimated that the damage on the island is 90 to100%. The death toll is at 43 but it is going to be much higher as bodies. The homeless population is estimated at 70,000 but that does not include people with damaged homes covered only by blue plastic tarps. Search and rescue crews with cadaver dogs ferreted through rubble on the Abaco islands. The human remains they find are put in body bags and coolers. Marsh Harbour which is the biggest town on Abaco Island was one of the hardest hit and was reduced to a pile of rubble. It will take years for the Bahamas to recover from Hurrricane Dorian.

"There are dead animals and gasoline in the water," said Elizabeth Nixon, who evacuated to Nassau but waited to be reunited with her children. "The clinic was so bad the toilet bowls were overflowing. The sewers are coming up... Bodies are in the harbor. It seems like we're in a movie." Unfortunately it is not over. Hurricane Dorian may have been the strongest to hit the island, but it won't be the last. The island nation is vulnerable to hurricane damage due to its low elevation and tropical latitude and it is only a matter of when the island nation will be hit again by another hurricane and sustain additional damage.

Freeport is only about 55 miles from Miami. What would be the cost of constructing an underwater tunnel from Freetown to Miami? Could there be some kind of a dual citizenship arrangement so that Bahamaians who are left refugees from circumstances such as this could immigrate to the United States? 70,000 people are now currently homeless. Nassau cannot absorb that influx of refugees from Grand Bahama and Abaco but we certainly can.
