THE STORY:

Hurricane Joaquin is one of the worst hurricanes to hit the Bahamas in recorded history. In a mere 2 days, it has reaped destruction on several islands, as it sat, moving 3-5mph, with unbelievably high winds and torrential downpour. The people of Long Island, Bahamas have suffered devastating losses in only 2 days. Homes and businesses are completely destroyed: roofs ripped from houses, flooding of 8ft. in some areas, everything inside, sitting in salt water for days, has been ruined. Belongings, heirlooms, furniture, pictures and clothing. Communication lines are down and the island has been in a blackout for days. There are no natural sources of freshwater on Long Island. Being an island, seafood is a primary source of livelihood for many people. All of the fishing vessels are gone. Businesses are underwater. Joaquin's damage will linger much longer than the hurricane itself, leaving people without their homes, basic necessities, and a way to make a living. Any relief aid is appreciated. Appeal to your local leaders about sending much needed assistance to the Bahamas, our neighboring country. Please share with others the true extent of the damage of Jaoquin. This is a national disaster that needs the recognition it deserves.
