A million thanks to Bruce Pinder of Da Salty Pig Adventures in Spanish Wells for allowing me to share these photos of GTC’s New Plymouth settlement with you.
As you can see, the devastation is widespread, and the residents of Green Turtle Cay (as well as the Abaco mainland, other Abaco cays and Grand Bahama) will need all the support they can get in the weeks, months and years ahead. Please help if you can. Here’s how.
Hi, all. Below are a number of high-res photos of Green Turtle Cay taken during a fly-over shortly after Hurricane Dorian. I’ve tried to put them in order roughly from north to south.
As you can see, some homes have been lost all together and most others are heavily damaged. Our family and friends on the cay and throughout Abaco and Grand Bahama need as much help as we can give them in the weeks, months and years ahead. Here’s How You Can Help.
The following information comes directly from Green Turtle Cay as of this morning, Sunday, September 8th:
“Everyone on Green Turtle Cay is working around the clock, keeping spirits high, and staying very organized against all odds. They have jumped into immediate action hosting town meetings, distributing relief items, and clearing debris.
The roads are fully cleared already with use of some functioning carts/cars.
Residents of Abaco and Grand Bahama have been devastated by Hurricane Dorian. Hundreds of lives have been lost, and the majority of those who survived have been left with nothing but the clothing they had on.
Bahamians affected by Hurricane Dorian will need as much help as we can give them in the days, weeks, months and years ahead. Here are some of the many ways to help:
As I write this, Hurricane Dorian is churning northwest across the Atlantic, taking direct aim at Green Turtle Cay and the other northern Bahamian islands. Predictions are that the storm could reach Category 3 or even 4 strength by the time it passes over the Bahamas on Sunday.
Though neither Tom nor I are on Green Turtle Cay at the moment, our amazing property managers Michael and Jennifer Sawyer of Abaco Breeze Properties have ensured that Fish Hooks is closed up tight and ready for Dorian. We’ve been in touch with a number of our friends and family members in Abaco, and everyone’s busy boarding up and battening down.
Thanks to Mandy Bennett Roberts of Green Turtle Cay for this photo, taken at GTC’s Coco Bay night before last. Looking at that peaceful scene, it’s hard to believe a hurricane is steaming towards Abaco. Be safe, everyone!
