Cat Island

Hurricane Irma and the Bahamas

We know that you, our subscribers to the Bahamas Chatter, are watching and praying that Hurricane Irma spares life and property as it passes through the Bahamas. We have let many of the facilities in the Bahamas know that we will be glad to post their updates and information here as they can send it. For any of you who have contacts and information on what is going on the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos, and also suggestions for how to help, please send us a post here on the Chatter, or send an email to sara@explorercharts.com. We will be faithful to keep this forum open for news.

We understand that BahamasAir has been flying residents off of the southeastern Bahamas and Ragged Island. As one Long Islander explained it, Nassau is the hub for all the Family Islands and when it is hampered, all of the islands suffer. It is not only the center for communications but also for distribution of supplies and aid.

Here’s a heart-felt reply to our note to Chub Cay Marina:

Hi. Thank you for your concern. After working so hard to get Chub back to where it was pre Matthew it is sad to see that Irma might undo it again. We have done all our preparation and have flown out most of our people. Now we just pray for the best. And not just for us but to all that’s in the path of Storming Irma.
Stay safe everyone. Life is more important than anything else.
