Dorian is a catastrophic 185 mph hurricane, stronger than Maria or Irma 2 years ago. It doesn't look good for the Abacos and Grand Bahama. I have just opened two Pleas for Help forums. Hope they can put people together who are in the same situation. This is a time to help each other out. Communicating with each other is often a great relief in the period right after the storm when we have the 'cone of silence', because the people affected are unable to communicate with us. -Gert

Abacos specific Pleas for Help forum --- Grand Bahama specific Pleas for Help forum

If you know of any informative Abaco or Grand Bahama specific news websites, discussion boards, Facebook groups, etc., let me know, and I will list it here. As a note of caution, don't believe everything you read or hear. In the days just after a storm there are a lot of big rumors going around! Gert gert@gobeach.com.

"Pro" tip from Celeste on Barbados: As you probably noticed it is hard or impossible to get through on cell phones to the Abacos or Grand Bahama right now for various reasons. However, texting does sometimes work. Please try it! Another option, which I should actually advertise more before a storm hits is using an app like FireChat. With this app you can somehow send messages without internet or cellular data! It's of course best if you download it before a storm hits... -Gert

We are not presently under any storm threat..........but somehow calling 'this' just rain seems an understatement. The drops beat heavily and steadily on the roof and ground. The breeze seems to "huff and puff". There is no reason I should be watching and checking my ceiling for leaks....and yet that's exactly what I am doing. Then I wonder ....if  I am feeling this way and I did not experience anything major during Dorian..( does moderate shingle loss and having a part of the ceiling falling in to leave naked rafters even  count?)..... I can not even begin to understand the heaviness and stress that residents of the Abacos and Grand Bahama feel during  this type of rain. I can only sympathize .

The recovery efforts are well underway. International and local agencies are  steadily working together to  help storm victims  (including our four legged  family members ).

Many persons remain missing but friends and relatives remain hopeful......even as the days pass .

Over one thousand persons are residing in shelters on New Providence island. They are receiving health care, meals and counselling.  Some private sector companies are offering work to the displaced, in efforts to help them financially.

Students who were attending classes at the  northern campus of the University of The Bahamas ( on Grand Bahama island)  are faced with challenges and decisions to make regarding continuing their studies. This is because the  wall of rushing water destroyed student dorms and wiped out the ground floor of the university campus.  Faculty, staff and administration are working tirelessly to assist students  in various ways, including collaboration with US colleges and universities to facilitate a semester abroad.

Government and private schools are helping by accepting displaced students into their classes. Education officials stress the importance of providing some routine for the children and helping them get back on track with their studies.

Citizens, residents and even visitors share in the recovery work, serving as shelter  or distribution or counselling or other service volunteers. The journey will be a long one but we continue to work towards building  a better tomorrow.  

 In Grand Bahama, some businesses have reopened... ...ready to serve the community and lend some small level of normality to the chaos left by Dorian. 

Dear Rest of The World.. residents of the Bahamas are very grateful for the support and help that you have provided during this challenging time. Your generosity is appreciated.

You can continue to help us recover by bringing your vacation business to us.  The southern, western and eastern islands remain open for business and welcome you all to visit us, enjoy the islands that dot the crystal blue waters.We look forward to seeing you sometime soon.

- Aftermath of Dorian
  • By John Roberts <ghpsafari at hotmail.com>
  • Date: Mon, 16 Sep 2019 15:11:12 +0000
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island 
Sunday 15 September 2019

Just a brief report, I have a communication problem and hope this is not just 
repeating what others have said.
I am aware that many parts of the Island are totally devastated so I am one of 
the really lucky ones, being safe and with only relatively minor damage to my 
home.
Things are returning to some degree of normality for some of us.
Electricity and water and telephones are gradually being restored but water 
only for flushing, not even bathing.  I hope the looting I heard about has 
stopped.
Lines at gas stations are shorter and the foodstores that are open have some 
fresh food. One bank has reopened.
Sadly there is a general mood of helplessness in the people I have talked to, 
some are leaving saying they will not return. The shock we are all in following 
Dorian is worse than I can remember after previous hurricanes.
I wish I could be more positive but can only hope and pray those who lost 
everything will get the help they desperately need.

- Dorian........and beyond
  • By "Mrs. Hogg" <BahamasTutor at live.com>
  • Date: Fri, 13 Sep 2019 04:28:23 +0000
Its been long days since the twin punches of Dorian tried to knock out the Bahamas. The people of the Abacos and Grand Bahama were  severely impacted. Entire communities were washed away or blown down by the strength of the storm.  Cold raging flood waters tore children from parents, wives from husbands, friends from each other and filled homes to the ceiling. The northern Bahamas campus of  the national university-University of The Bahamas. was torn up by 20ft walls of rushing water. The dormitory was destroyed leaving students who had come from other islands homeless.

The confirmed death toll has risen to 50  and  to date there are at least 2000 persons reported as missing. Hope remains that they  some will be found alive , evacuated to another island  .

The storm brought devastation to two of the nations three major economic and population centers. However,government, the local private sector, church , the general public and NGOs are working   alongside international NGOs, charities, and  groups from other nations in recovery efforts.  Emergency medical , housing and food centers have been set up and organized to assist storm victims. The citizens and residents of the Bahamas have been bruised and battered but there is a sense of community. Persons from all walks of life are stepping up to assist in the recovery efforts.

Shelters have been set up to provide temporary housing for displaced persons. The shelters are manned by teams of professionals, volunteers, national security staff and international supporting  staff. Donations of food, medicine, clothing  are coming in to help these persons.


The medical authorities  have two difficult tasks........looking after the health needs of those from the affected islands and also carefully documenting the deaths of those who did not survive the storm. International support is being provided in these tasks.

Many animals also perished. Agencies out of the US have been working with local groups to rescue and treat  storm affected animals, even going so far as to ship some of the stronger animals to shelters abroad, making space for those coming from Abaco and Grand Bahama.



Much of the images that are being featured in the various news cycles show the crushing impact of the storm. Yet, it is vital that the world understand that there are several other islands that experienced minimum storm damage. As a  tourism based country, we need visitors to come  . In order for us to recover , we need persons to be employed. We need the tourism sector to be healthy and grow. To YOU, out there in the rest of the world.........I say, please visit........Exuma ( see the swimming pigs).........Eleuthera ( taste great pineapple tarts...relax in the glowing aquamarine waters)  New Providence ( commonly called Nassau ....which is actually the name of the city,,,,,,,,visit historical forts,  tour National Art Gallery, Botanical Gardens, casinos.....swim with sharks, swim with dolphins)....... Long Island, Cat Island, Inagua.........so much still left to see and do........

Yes, Abacos, Grand Bahama...were hit VERY BADLY. We mourn the loss of friends and family.But the Bahamian spirit is not crushed.  We are working together for recovery. We are THANKFUL for the help that has poured in from  the many generous individuals, nations and organizations. We invite you to come and visit our many other islands as we continue to recover and grow. We move, FORWARD, UPWARD, ONWARD...Together!

Thanks for your message.

The Abacos are a disaster. Possibly up to 2500 dead; swept away or crushed by collapsing buildings or debris.

Marsh Harbour and Treasure Cay airports are open to disaster assistance and other agencies but not to insurance adjusters, homeowners or others. That will change as things improve but forget trying to get to your property for now.

Many houses had their roofs scalped or other serious damage.

Phone service is poor. We have received emails and telephone calls, but calling back certain telephone exchanges (in particular 577-XXXX) has not worked for us.

Most are homeless, hungry and afraid but the authorities and authorized individuals are working their way through the carnage.

If someone wants to help donate to the Red cross or a legitimate agency.

We have not been approached by scammers, but no doubt they exist.

 

Will report more when we know more.

Abaco is devastated. From Spring City to Crown Haven in the North the damage is overwhelming. Marsh Harbour, Dundas and Murphy Town are destroyed. However, from Casuarina Point down to Sandy Point in the South are relatively untouched having received winds of ONLY 130mph or so. BPL have informed us that they are trying to fix the downed poles between Wilson City and the Neem farm (about 50 or so) after which they will be able to restore power from Casuarina to Sandy Point. The main problem in the South is water supplies, food and fuel. If we had those we can stay in our undamaged homes here in the south.

Hi Gert

Just heard on our 13:00 news that the Royal Navy have reached the Bahamas to give the people much needed aid.

Quote from BBC News website

<<The British Royal Navy vessel RFA Mounts Bay has begun landing personnel and emergency aid to the Abacos. Helicopters and three UK humanitarian experts have been helping to co-ordinate the rescue response.>>

Internationally, people can donate via this link to the International Red Cross - on the drop-down list is a specific item for Hurricane Dorian. Will be posting this on my FB page in the next few mins.

https://www.redcross.org/donate/donation.html/ 

Thinking about everyone suffering this disaster and those still in the hurricane's path.

We’ve just opened our own Harbour Island rental to a lovely family of four from Abaco through 1 November, newly-evacuated from the clutches of Hurricane Dorian. 

 

Whether or not you are registered with AirBnB, please contact Adell Fahrquharson ASAP to offer your spare room, apartment, house, mailboat or house for a short-term stay through 25 September, whether you hail from Nassau, Cat Island, Eleuthera, Briland, Exuma or beyond: thousands are being evacuated by NEMA and the USCG, via email adell at brilandsoul.com.

 

#BahamasStrong

Kimberly, open your home to someone in need.

In light of the events in The Bahamas, those affected or first responders may need a temporary place to stay.

 

We’re reaching out to invite you to join Open Homes, a program that provides hosts a way to share their extra space with people in need of emergency housing, at no cost to the guest.

Right now, we’re asking hosts to open up their home for free from September 03 to September 25. You’d still be protected under Airbnb’s Host Guarantee and Host Protection Insurance. You also can control your availability and message with potential guests before the stay.

To learn more about how this works, you can visit the Open Homes page or the Airbnb Citizen blog.

 

Thank you for considering to share your home with those in need.

The Open Homes team

My dear friend who ran a business in the Abacos had word that matters in Green Turtle Key are very bad. I won’t write details as it is third hand but we all suspect the worse. Having been to the Abacos and knowing the devastation on Barbuda, I can only imagine.

Prayers to all

Abaco bracing itself for what could be a big one. Many homes and businesses boarding up already. Been here before! Been very calm here today with little breeze.

So far all quiet here today but am sure we have weather to come early Saturday. Stay safe to all in Dorian's way.

Here in Abaco we are well under way preparing for what could be a bad one. Many businesses and houses boarding up already. Been totally calm here today. Not a breeze.
