Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis addressed a National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA press conference at NEMA headquarters, September 2, 2019, as Hurricane Dorian continues to impact Grand Bahama.

Prime Minister Minnis said upon the “all clear,” there will be rapid assessment and relief and recovery initiatives – most urgently in Grand Bahama and Abaco.

“Critical measures are in place and every resource will be brought to bear,” he said, “to bring relief as quickly as possible.”

He said that he had received kind encouragement from leaders of the Caribbean Community and from around the world. He asked Bahamians and residents to open their homes at this time to family and friends in need.

The category 5 storm hit Grand Bahama and the Abaco islands over the weekend.
