      @Brandon garcia , the sky is falling. The sky is falling. The sky is falling. The sky is falling. The sky is falling. The sky is falling. The sky is falling. The sky is falling. The sky is falling. The sky is falling. The sky is falling.

      Phil, you should be glad. I mean think about it. If you’re right, in a few decades a ton of stupid people (and their vectors) will simply disappear. All the morons who can’t add but want super duper high paying jobz? Gone. The morons who don’t understand that you don’t necessarily have to have an opinion about everything? Pleasantly silent. Finally.

      Dude. Let the rain come down.

  2. Maybe its time to move off the sand bars and head for higher ground ,sea levels are Rising…

    • Barbra M thanks for your reply Barbra🙏🏻

    • @Douglasville Darling The people pay taxes, that is what that money is for. Their under England rule they should also help, their charges.

    • @Gabe Dudley …and?
      You’re trying to “debunk” sea-level rising by equating Obama with scientific researchers and activism?
      Just because he believes in Climate Change doesn’t necessarily mean he’s going to be on the forefront of it. His job was to push for awareness and craft legislation born from it.
      With just about any topic, someone can easily say “…but!”, and try to reference some instance as if that alone somehow dismisses it. Unless you’ve got something verifiable you’re not going to have much influence on this subject..

      @Danny Zappala Yes, king Tide, Storm surge…OK. In your opinion, was it a 1/100 year storm? We’ve already had Storms who have broken past records very recently, meaning they’re not even on our charts. Anyway the charts are gone redundant. That was the message of the World’s science community, at the Paris agreement. Any change was too late to bring it back. The only hope was to minimize, maybe a bit. But since that flop (Trump), the humans will have to learn how to survive in this man made destruction of the planet. Trying to go back now is too late. These Island will have to be abandoned, it’s a money pit to go against nature, lol. really, the storms will come back and worst. It’s called Global Warming ( recognized since the 1950’s) or Climate Change. There’s no going back!

  3. Good luck with rebuilding ❤️.

  4. As a Bahamian I must correct the name of this video. It should say, “The islands of Abaco and possibly Grand Bahama will need to rebuild after Hurricane Dorian”. The Bahamas is not just one Island. It is an archipelago which means a chain of islands make up my country. Dorian only hit 2 of our islands in the northern end of my country directly. The island of New Providence which is the capital where Nassau is located (my hometown) received a lot of wind and rain as is the case for other islands in the central and Northern most part of The Bahamas. Hurricanes are not new to us. We know how to prepare for them but sometimes they are unpredictable. I wouldn’t change my home for all the money in the world.
    When Dorian has passed, the sun will come out and we can go out and enjoy the beaches and the sunshine.

  5. so basically, we’re screwed [and I live in North Carolina-]

    I think the average human has forgotten what an ocean is…. And especially the people that live right by it, especially the Atlantic ocean… Do you understand how much water that is, how much energy that is, how uncontrollable that is, and how the sea has always been this way… great vacation spot, but living there??? no thank you…

      @Laremy Quite right. Beachside properties should only belong to the very rich.

    • @Laremy crack kills

      XT Development, Inc. and where do you suggest these people should pack their lives up and go to ?
      See you guys see these islands as only vacation hotspots but these are countries. These Natural disasters are unpredictable who knew Dorian will be stagnant and slow pace as it is currently. And for those who keep talking about they should have prepared more…ITS a Cat 5 that lasted for nearly 24hrs,it’s currently a Cat 4 and is still in the same location over The Bahamas for more the next 12 hrs…[Cat 5 with winds 185 mph and a gust of 220 mph,that is like being in a tornado for over 24hrs]
      Now sit back in your cozy homes and judge those SURVIVORS.

    • @Fireguy 2018 You mean REAL documented refugees? We gladly take them in rhe US

  7. Feel sorry for the poor folks who barely have anything in situations like this to loose all and lives stay strong bahamiams. 💘 from puerto rico

  8. United States will have to give the Bahamas by ship water, food, dry clothes, etc. Thank you US Navy.

    My deepest thoughts are with all affect by this. Stay safe. ❤

  10. Prayers go out to the people of the Bahamas! I know what they are going thru personally. On the bright side, knowing you made it thru alive numbs the effect of the destruction to some extent. Not much though! The USA will help them quickly for now, I just hope its only them they need to help.

    Nassau Bahamas my Island shut out to all of my people may God protect you bless you and may speed up the storm. I pray that you do get help from other countries especially China cuz they already have been repairing the Caribbeans.

  12. I live in Jamaica ,when I hear countries need water and Jamaican politicians too busy filling thier pockets and we have fresh water as natural resource wasting to sea.

  13. May God help the Bahamas 🇧🇸 sending prayers and love 💗 I was just there on holiday a couple of months ago. Beautiful people and beautiful Island. May God help you rebuild 🙏🏽🙏🏽

      LOL If any intervention was going to happen, why not make it before the deaths ? It’s people who will be helping rebuild, not non existent mythological figures.

    • What good is it, my brothers and
      sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such
      faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and
      daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and
      well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good
      is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by
      action, is dead. (James 2: 14-17)

    • AsFewFalseThingsAsPossible | September 2, 2019 at 11:42 PM | Reply

      @Thyalwaysseek Indeed, and actually, faith is a part of the problem, not the solution. Because, really, what cannot be believed based on “faith” ? Therefore it’s not much use if you are interested in the truth.

    Have a place in Abaco but wasn’t willing to take the risk and stay after seeing the storm track. Heart goes out to my friends and family still there:(

  15. Elisabeth Robbins | September 2, 2019 at 9:31 PM | Reply

    These people are using hammers or whatever they can find to break out of their attics so they and their children don’t drown inside, just to sit for potentially days on what’s left of the roof waiting to be “rescued” to another location which doesn’t even have drinking water available. They have watched their neighbors homes destroyed and had their children ripped from their grasp & dragged off by waves. Shame on the people commenting “who’s gonna foot this bill?”. Exactly how heartless can you truly be? Sickening

    Unfortunately I assumed everything was going to be underwater being a small group of islands with a cat 5 storm surge.

    I compared it before it hit with Katrina striking as a cat 4 destroying the Levy’s and the pumps were not working so I expected many deaths after rescue missions get underway. I also fear in their case, others swept out to sea unfortunately. God be with them and please America send supplies asap.

  17. Honest Opinion | September 3, 2019 at 2:15 AM | Reply

    I hope only Human Made Global Warming Deniers, get affected!

  18. Don’t hold your breath for too much help don’t forget you are mostly the wrong colour.

  19. The next one will come, before you have rebuild the damage…. it’s unavoidable because of climate change

  20. How can we all help?
    Should we go golfing or what?
    Will golfing help?! 😯
