    The Bahamas is a sovereign nation gaining Independence form BRITAIN after 350 years – it has nothing to do with the USofA. It's also the 3rd richest nation in the America's after US and Canada having huge off-shore banking industries located there. Probably much richer then Canada if one gets into the huge, huge off-shore tax havens and 'non-profits' run from there. It is the richest nation per capita in the Caribbean. Prime Minster Hubert Minnis should be using pre-positioned assets, stocks and equipment as this happens (major hurricane) on average every 7.4 years.

    Damages were to 2 islands out of 30 major islands and 700 smaller islands. Other Bahamas islands are on TV asking for more tourists – they should be involved with their own cleanup efforts rather then ask American taxpayers to borrow more money they cannot afford to do what the Bahamas government should be doing.

    I went through Camille, a category 5 hurricane, when it came onshore at the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We only had the Cat-5 winds of 175 to 185 for a few hours. Even so, with the 30 foot storm surge we lost 260 people in a relatively unpopulated area. The destruction was TOTAL on the waterfront.
    That being said, the affected area in the Bahamas was subjected to similar forces for 36 HOURS. Pretty much nothing can survive that, and even before news reports came out from ground zero, I fully expected casualties to run in the many hundreds of people. I don't see how it could be otherwise.

    yup it looks like all your prayers have worked? as a tropical storm is now headed to the Bahamas. If you think praying to god as an effect on the temperature of the waters in the southern hemisphere. then well hey… I love it how people are like oh were blessed oh god spared us oh yea he sure did by having dorian moving over the bahamas at 3km per hour he sure showed his mercy
