Executive Director of the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency, CDEMA, Ronald Jackson says it will be dispatching a response team in the affected islands of the Bahamas tomorrow.
This after Hurricane Dorian battered two of the country’s more populated islands, Abaco and Grand Bahama between Sunday and Tuesday.
After being stationary for many hours, the category 2 storm started drifting yesterday, farther away from the Bahamas to the US.
He says they’re considering two options to access the affected islands.
Mr. Jackson says the islands have taken a severe lashing which has impeded ongoing rescue operations.
