Dorian must be a male storm. He does not know when the relationship is over and he should leave. He is making sure to leave the widest path of destruction as he exits. He takes long to exit - procrastination is the theme. Women - we unleash our fury quickly, and move on because we got children to mind.
Dorian is expected to remain in Grand Bahama until this evening. So there will be tropical storm winds until them. In New Providence (Nassau) we still having heavy rain squalls this morning, but electricity is on for most people. In Grand Bahama even downtown is flooded. So we can't criticize the residents for staying in their homes. The Emergency Operation Center is flooded and they had to go to the 2nd floor of the building. Rescue efforts had to be stopped because of darkness and because the storm is still there.
Abaco is beginning its recovery. US Coast Guard helicopters have been evacuating people. The storm has passed - so efforts are possible inspite of the rain. Communications are being brought back up - but you know if electricity is a challenge, then only so much you can do. Most people use cellphones nowadays and cell towers use electricity principally and some have generators.
But we'll deal with Abaco first and when he leaves Grand Bahama we'll turn our attention to there.
