Destruction in Paradise - Hurricane Dorian Deals a Hefty Blow to the Bahamas

Posted on September 3, 2019 at 4:46 PM
Deadly and destructive Hurricane Dorian is slowly releasing its stationary grip on the Caribbean isles of the Bahamas. In the wake of the hurricane, large swaths of the northern Bahamas have suffered "unprecedented" damage and some areas have been submerged under copious amounts of rainfall and a high and strong storm surge.

For more than 36-hours, the tropical weather system punished the usually sun- drenched vacation isles with winds of 185-miles-per-hour, rainfall measuring in feet and a storm surge that submerged Grand Bahama International Airport under some six-feet-of water.

Media reports of satellite images of the Bahamian damage revealed houses and other structures reduced to colored toothpick-like mounds of rubbish with boats thrown up onto land as large swaths of once-dry remained under water. The leadership of the island group has described the destruction as "unprecedented". Five deaths have been attributed to the storm so far, but that number could increase given the non-surveyed status of the full extent of Dorian and its continuing rains as the system limps northwest away from the Bahamas.

The United States (US) Coast Guard has responded quickly to assist the Bahamas and it is credited thus far with airlifting 21 injured people for medical care in the capital, Nassau, even though some parts that city remain under water. Abaco island and the surrounding islands appear to have taken the brunt of the hurricane-damage. Some 17,000 people inhabit Abaco. 

Head of State Queen Elizabeth II has sent condolences to the people of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas via a statement to her representative Governor General Cornelius Smith. Her Majesty said: "At this very difficult time, my thoughts and prayers are with those who have seen their homes and property destroyed and I also send my gratitude to the emergency services and volunteers, who are supporting the rescue and recovery effort," the BBC-News reported.

While the resilient people of the Bahamas will rebuild and will recover from this massive act of nature, international assistance will surely be needed to contribute toward the recovery efforts of the beloved Bahamas.
