“As always when expecting a rage, there was tension in the air but, Abaconians have seen many a storm and know how to prepare.”

“My daughter, who lives in Nassau,  begged me to leave and I stubbornly refused.  After all, I had seen many hurricanes in my life.  This one, however, was a monster.”

“I don’t think anyone who was not in Abaco the day after that storm could ever understand the devastation.  It was horrendous.”
