Hurricane Dorian: Generational Devastation in Bahamas, says PM

Officials expect the number of dead will continue to rise as large parts of some islands remain inaccessible to rescue crews

The Guardian UK, 5 Sep 2019







Hurricane Dorian SLAMS Bahamas...


The official death toll from Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas has hit 20 and is likely to rise further, the country’s prime minister has said, as he warned of “generational devastation” in the archipelago’s northern region.

Aerial video of the Abaco Islands – a northern band of islands hardest hit by Dorian – showed widespread devastation, with the harbour, shops, workplaces, a hospital, and airport landing strips damaged or blown to pieces, all of which was frustrating rescue efforts.

Dorian pummelled the area as a slow moving category 5 hurricane over the weekend.

“So many families have been deeply impacted” by Dorian, which “has left generational devastation across Abaco and Grand Bahama”, Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said at a press conference late on Wednesday. “We ask you to pray for the families and loved ones of the deceased,” added the PM, who had just returned from a flyover of the Abacos.

Minnis also said he was aware of reports of looting on the Abacos.

Large areas remain inaccessible to rescue crews, who continue to prioritiae emergency evacuations, meaning the full scale of devastation caused by the hurricane is still not completely clear.

Mark Low****, the United Nations under-secretary-general for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief coordinator, told the Guardian that the agency estimates around 70,000 people in the northern Bahamas remain in need of relief assistance.

At the island’s main rescue centre in Nassau, the Bahamas capital city,
Royal Marines helicopters & US Coast Guard arrived sporadically throughout the day bringing in dozens of rescued people from the Abacos Islands.

Rescue workers said that the challenge remained gargantuan due to the level of destruction and how remote the northern islands were. With no functioning water systems in accessible areas, workers had not been able to establish a permanent rescue site on the Abacos.

Lt Keith Webb, a Royal Marines helicopter co-pilot, said that his crew had rescued a seven-week-old baby girl who suffered from acute sepsis in the aftermath of Dorian. The crew had also rescued two children, aged six and seven, suffering from hypothermia.

Other recently evacuated Bahamians said they had endured days without food and, in one case, had witnessed a neighbour die in front of them from cardiac arrest.


The British government has dispatched a team of disaster relief specialists from the Department for International Development (Dfid) that is coordinating aid operations based primarily from a royal navy landing vessel RFA Mounts Bay, anchored close to the Abacos Islands.

The Royal Navy has launched operations to deliver aid to communities hit by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas.

A Royal Fleet Auxiliary landing ship has been deployed to work alongside the Royal Bahamas Defence Force to help deliver shelter kits, water and other essentials to the island of Great Abaco.

Captain Rob Anders, commanding officer of RFA Mounts Bay, said: “RFA Mounts Bay has been working alongside the Bahamian National Emergency and Management Agency and US Coast Guard personnel, using our Wildcat helicopter to conduct initial assessments on Abaco Island and we have landed reconnaissance troops ashore. The US Coast Guard had rescued 114 people by Wednesday afternoon. A spokesman told the Guardian that six helicopter rescue crews had rescued around 60 critically injured people by Tuesday evening.

Dorian’s ferocity has weakened since it struck the Bahamas, but it remains powerful as it creeps up the south-eastern US coast toward North and South Carolina. On Wednesday evening it was a category 3 storm with sustained winds of 115mph, regaining strength after previously being downgraded to a category 2.

Forecasters warned of near-record water levels and millions of people are under evacuation orders. Businesses are boarded up around the city and some people have been in shelters for days. South Carolina’s governor Henry McMaster warned residents in evacuation zones to “get out now”. There was still time for people to leave at-risk areas, he said, but they should do so immediately.















Pray for Those Poor People.....
