TRINIDAD-AMERICAS-SUMMIT-INGRAHAM<<< Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham.

Prime Minister Hubert A. Ingraham has expressed sincere condolences over the tragic loss of life and tremendous damage and property losses suffered in Freeport, Grand Bahama, today as a result of a tornado strike late this morning.

He extended his best wishes for the speedy recovery for all others who suffered injury.
As the dangerous weather system continues to impact the Bahamas, the Prime Minister called on all residents, but particularly those in the north and central Bahamas, to remain vigilant and to heed all advisories issued by the Met Office.

Residents are particularly encouraged to remain indoors and in the event of severe weather to retreat to the innermost rooms of their homes.

The Prime Minister advised that NEMA is on alert and will be coordinating the Government’s response as required.
The sudden and unexpected weather reportedly impacted the Freeport Container Port and the Lucaya Marina Village in Freeport particularly severely. The Container Port has reported damage to six cranes. It is expected that the Port will be closed for a number of days as the company assesses the damage and effects whatever repairs are possible in the short term. It is assumed that when reopened, the Port will operate at a reduced capacity for some time.
The Prime Minister advised that he has cancelled his plans to attend the Tyler Perry premiere scheduled for this evening at Atlantis, Paradise Island.

Weather permitting he will visit Freeport tomorrow to assess damage and to meet with central and local Government officials on the ground.

  1. Not just that freetinka. my thing is why the hell was the meteorology dept in fpo shut down? ingRUM seems to think ppl are flippin stupid. the amount of money they negociating with statoil for the sale of them oil rigs to that canadian oil tycoon should be invested in fpo. if ya ask me i think ingRUM already made up his mind to turn fpo into a ghost town so the oil tycoons can use that whole island to store and blend crude oil. so looking at all the neglect of freeport on the govts plan one has to wonder if it isnt some sort of conspiracy theory goin on there.
