Bahamas Update After Hurricane Dorian

This summer, Hurricane Dorian’s path of destruction through The Bahamas occupied top new spots. Weeks later, we look at how to help the storm-torn area, much of which actually remains either slightly-affected or unscathed.

While the northern Bahamas – Abaco and Grand Bahama – experienced serious destruction, according to Rachel Knowles of The Nassau Guardian, “as a country, the Bahamas shouldn’t look, as a whole, super different.”

How to Help

Travel writer Lea Lane, wrote in Forbes that we should do 2 things to help: DONATE to recovery efforts and PLAN TO TRAVEL to The Bahamas.

Recovery Efforts
