    Suddenly every thing you had was gone whit a hurricane

  5. Trump won’t help, they can’t vote for him. He’ll sharpie them off the map.

  6. All those people in Florida who cleared out all their stores in preparation for the storm that never hit Florida. They should donate all of their supplies 50 miles east to the Bahamas. “Attention, everybody bring your unused emergency supplies to the port and we will boat it to the Bahamas.”

  7. Wish I could come and help

    How many people are going back to take the risk again ? This is likely to repeat itself . Frightful .

    • The entire country is in the line of a potential hurricane. So we have no place to go but to build back and hope this never happens again

      @Gray Nevertheless, I hope that other choices will become possible.
      Houses that are even more resistant to these storms and what is very important is building flood defenses such as in the Netherlands .

    • @M. R. Molenaar Elzinga I agree but I don’t think anything could withstand a category 5 hurricane with 185 wind speed that stayed in one place for 2 days.

  9. So sad ! For these guy ! Look a lot like Vietnam during my younger day !

  10. Sad…… Hope they are rebuilding for category seven hurricanes for the future.

  11. Im disgusted by government entities that show lack of regard for their citizens……Priority #1 – Citizens wellfare……🕉

  12. Grand Bahamas will be a tropical paradise nature reserve in a couple of years.

  13. While your rebuilding, round up the criminals and drop them off in the ocean. Don’t do like the mayor of new Orleans after Katrina.

  14. Never heard of Geico, Yet has a Humvee Hmm 🤔

  15. If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do? Psalm 11:3. The answer is cry out to God.

  16. Dirt poor islands so don’t expect government help. It’s not coming.
    I’m sorry.

  17. Carnival Cruise lines needs to buy the whole island, fix it to be paridise, and bring tourist’s there.

  18. You can buy a 1500 foot ship for half a billion, you can fix the Island it goes to.
