Hurricane Francis is hitting the Bahamas

Jump to last reply

As of 5pm Hurricane force winds are already in the Bahamas, electricity has gone out on several islands and the full force of the storm is not expected until 8pm tonight.

This is going to be a VERY BAD storm and the full force is expected to hit Nassau and Grand Bahama with extensive damage.

If you would like to make a donation to Hurricane Relief, please let me know and I can get you information on where they can be sent.

This is very close to a category V storm, so damage will be very bad, remember what Hurricane Andrew did to Florida? Something like $20Billion. That same storm went over Harbour Island, and took every blade of grass, every leaf, everything green, and did some damage to buildings, but NO loss of life. The folks in the Bahamas sure take these storms very seriously. Most of the homes on the island date back to the late 1700's - early 1900's they sure made them to stand.

Let me know if you have any questions and I will see if I can get some answers.

More info directly from the island can be found at www.briland.com. Local islanders have SAT phones and are calling in reports.
