17% of the Bahamian population is homeless as a result of Dorian.  70,000 people.  Even if they get power and infrastructure back up, I think the northern islands will be more like they were 30 or 40 years ago - much lower population and density.

Anyone who can get out is going either to Nassau or to the U.S., and once they go there, they may not ever return to Grand Bahama or the Abacos.

We are getting involved down here in Florida with helping the refugees who have made it over to our area.  They need basic items:  clothes, toiletries, etc.  Some of them came with literally only the clothes they were wearing.
