Bahamas Residents Chest-Deep in Hurricane Dorian Flood Waters

  • โ„น๏ธ Description
Residents in Freeport, Bahamas have fled their flooded homes to seek higher ground, Tuesday, September 3 as the island nation continues to feel the devastating effects of Hurricane Dorian.

In this footage, Tim Aylen, a Bahamian journalist working with The Associated Press, along with his daughter, Julia Aylen, and their dogs waded through chest-deep water to find a safer place to stay.

United Nations officials estimate more than 60,000 people in the northwest Bahamas will need food following the catastrophic natural disaster left from Hurricane Dorian.

A spokesman for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies said Tuesday about 45% of homes in Grand Bahama and Abaco were severely damaged or destroyed.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Hurricane Dorian relentlessly battered Grand Bahama Island on Tuesday, even as the powerful storm began to edge closer to the mainland U.S. in the southern state of Florida.

Dorian, packing sustained winds of 175 kilometers an hour with higher gusts, was classified as a Category 2 storm, diminished from when it first slammed into the Bahamas as a most dangerous Category 5 hurricane and stalled over the popular vacation mecca. At the same time, however, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said the storm is growing larger.

Forecasters continued to describe Dorian as "extremely dangerous" as it moved northwestward toward the Florida coast at 4 kilometers an hour. Forecasters predicted Dorian would advance "slightly faster" later Tuesday before turning northward along the country's eastern seaboard by Wednesday night.

I agree with someone here that every home should have Life jackets in The Bahamas from now on. It would keep them from sinking if they begin to get tired.

The Major Cruze Lines That make frequent stops to the Bahamas need to pony up with 20 to 30 Cruze Line ships ๐Ÿ›ณ to house people that are left homeless by this storms wrath.

Then any effort to rebuild dwellings shoul only be done out of ๐Ÿ’ฏ percent Concrete and no living space in those dwellings should be no lower than 20 feet above high tide sea level.
If need be the first floor of any structure should be parking space only.

Learn from tragedy, donโ€™t repeat it like dummies. All coastal building codes should be this stringent.

These storms case billions of metric tons of pure garbage and chemicals washing into oceans.
