About a week after Hurricane Dorian ravaged the Abaco Islands as the strongest hurricane to hit the Bahamas on record, those remaining here at the site of the devastation said the storm took away everything from them.

On the island of Great Abaco, wrecked boats and flipped-over cars were strewn across streets of completely flattened houses, crushed businesses and mangled playgrounds. Downed power lines and the frames of buildings lined the sides of the roads. Some cars were impaled by flying pieces of wood and steel. The smell of death was in the air.

The article goes on to state the following:

The catastrophic Category 5 storm pummeled the islands with sustained winds of 185 mph, life-threatening storm surges and torrential rain in a sustained two-day assault. At least 43 people were killed during the storm, but with many still reported missing, that number is feared to dramatically rise. Most deaths were here in the Abaco Islands, which were home to some 17,000 people.

By Sunday, Great Abaco was becoming a ghost town, as thousands of people try to evacuate by plane and boat.

    Are any other countries helping these people in the Bahamas? Are any of them offering to take people from the Bahamas? We cannot take these people since most of them are on the TV saying I have absolutely nothing left. How many more of these people are we to take in on the taxpayer dollar? I’m sympathetic to them and I know they’re hurting but the vets and the homeless are hurting here also. Stop the insanity enough is enough
