NASSAU| Observers on the ground are now telling Bahamas Press that over 3,000 residents on Grand Bahama and ABACO could be confirmed dead in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian.

The numbers are “staggering” just as the Minister of Health Dr. Duane Sands suggested last week. The government though continues to confirm the number to be a mere 43 confirmed victims in one of the deadliest disasters on record in the Bahamas. That number is far much higher.

This shocking report by agencies on the ground proves that the Minnis Administration has led the worst and most chaotic management of a natural disaster ever in the history of the Bahamas. A mammoth task indeed for the sitting director of NEMA, Capt. Stephen Russell, who had to welcome the architect of NEMA Carl Smith out of retirement which began only a few weeks ago.

Sources inside NEMA tell us the guidelines left in place for the management of a Natural Disaster were never followed and the results are staggering indeed.

Thousands dead, airborne diseases, no proper sanitation and mounds of garbage litter the streets of two major cities in The Bahamas. And garbage infestation could only breathe the troubles of serious health consequences of residents in the affected areas. But who is going to take charge?

Remember – the last time Minnis led the response to a disaster was during his term as Minister of Health when scores died from dengue? This is serious.

Only BP has reported how the Minnis Cabinet ordered some 200 body bags on Tuesday from a pharmaceutical in the capital, and by Thursday an additional order in the triple digits was made. No one can deny these facts!

Additionally, Ministry of Social Services and Urban Development advised the general public that a phone line has been established at the Disaster Management Unit, Department of Social Services, dedicated for use by those members of the general public wishing to register the name (s) of family members whom they have been unable to contact since the passage of Hurricane Dorian: 323-1877.

In East End Grand Bahama some 73 persons are unaccounted for along with would include persons in the communities of Mclain’s Town, Pelican Bay, and High Rock. And in High Rock one reported to the local press how some 11 members of her family have perished in Hurricane Dorian.

In the Mudd and Pea in Abaco alone, the number could swell to over 3,000 alone as residents in that lowland area never evacuated as floodwaters washed away their homes during the storm.

Maybe many of those victims will never be found. Thousands are feared dead in what is being described as the worst environmental and ecological disaster to hit the Bahamas.

We report yinner decide!

    Cynthia Campbell means nothing. She IS nothing. She is a piss ant not even worthy to clean one person’s shoes. She’s not worthy of her children or her grandchildren or her husband if she is lucky enough to have any of those things. She is hateful to the core. She hates those who have less than her. She doesn’t even know that those bodies laying in the water rotting are going to cause bad disease. She’d rather take food that is spoiling in warehouses out on the dead and dying then realize Abaco is gone, they have no infrastructure left. She’s ignorant to the fact that Puerto Rican’s are American citizens and DenAnn thinks there is a choice in the matter. Donald Trump is Puerto Rico’s President and we help HUMAN BEINGS because we are the United States of America…what was ONCE thought of as the greatest nation in the world. Thanks to people mentioned above and the President she has her head stuck so far up his ass….not anymore. We are an embarrassment to the world. My suggestion when dealing with evil (literally) bible thumping Joplin Missourians who want to tell dead black people to get up off their lazy ass and put their country back together like Joplin did is to ignore them. Go with what you know is right in your heart and continue to be the Good Samaritans and humanitarians you are. Remember…she means nothing. She wouldn’t know how to be just like Jesus if she tried. That’s what you call a CINO…Christian in name only. Well lady …I don’t want what you think you have because it is ugly to the core. Oh…and yes, she is a racist.

    Countries run by blacks are by nature backward, crooked, incompetent, and non-responsive. Completely dependent on White nations to bail them out. There is no accountability and no motivation for doing the right thing. Black governed countries (and American Black-governed cities) have siphoned off all aid monies to line their own pockets. These are facts, not racism. After the EF-5 tornado destroyed Joplin, Missouri, a small city in the midwest, even FEMA said that the people of Joplin had done more to self- recover in 2 weeks than New Orleans has YET to recover after Katrina many years prior. The reasons? Bible Belt values, work ethics, a shunning of government assistance, higher average IQ. , HONESTY AND INTEGRITY. We didn’t sit on our porches on our fat asses expecting ‘de gubmint’ to do everything for us.

      How about reminding yourself about the Katrina Disaster.

    • media

      And if you don’t know Marsh Harbour is ran by and control by White Bahamians…

      ‘De gubmint’? You’re pathetic, really. It must be nice writing from the comfort of your ivory tower.

  • C A Dixon

    It’s stunningly sickening that the World Powers government’s take so long in their responses, and efforts, in such a human catastrophe. Yet, they are ready at a moment’s notice to take a vacation there. Weak. Weak and lame. Does this remind you of Puerto Rico’s hurricane fiasco? Yes

    • Cynthia Campbell

      ITS NOT OUR JOB TO SAVE THE WORLD YOU LIBERAL POS! The Bahamas like Puerto Rico is a sovereign nation. Every cent we gave was stolen by the country’s leaders. Every pallet of food and water we sent was found rotting in warehouses while the incompetent mayor and governor were whining on TV wearing their designer Hillary for President’ shirts. They, not us are solely to blame for their nations’ incompetence.

        ummm…. Puerto Rico is a unincorporated territory of the United States.

          She or he. Troll bigoted racist doesn’t care about truth. Only spewing hate.

      • Pamela Hewett

        You are a hate filled racist bigot. I hope that God gives you what you deserve. I can’t believe your posts as a matter of fact I’m reporting them. Crawl back in your white racist little hole and stay. You should be praying for those that are suffering not spewing hate.

        • media

          So you replacing Fred Smith on here eh? Remember we control BP no one else.

      • C A Dixon

        This isn’t political. It’s humanitarian.
        Regardless of whatever the government is doing, people are suffering dying or dead because of a natural disaster.
        Whine about evil government later after the one’s who are still alive are rescued and fed, and the perished are properly buried, if they’re found.
        My Grandmother’s family are indigenous to those islands. Think about if your relatives were wiped out by a weather disaster. Tornado, earthquake, tsunami, volcano, blizzard or hurricane.

      • Jo Jo

        Puerto Rico is part of the United States.

        • DenAnn

          They will be part of the US when they agree to pay taxes like all citizens. You can’t have it both ways.

  • F S

    I told you there will be thousands, and don’t worry about the garbage, only maggots and flies will be living on these islands for awhile because the rats are all dead, every living creature is dead there.
