“If we were to evacuate to Marsh Harbour we would have died.”

“The storm itself was not the problem. It was the aftermath, with new problems sprouting, like unregulated building and no building inspectors on site.”

“Security was a major concern in Abaco after the storm. It was the  Wild, Wild West for some time after the storm.”

“We are not prepared for something like Dorian again. On Abaco there are still a lot of existing vulnerabilities that we have to deal with. On a scale of 1 to 10 we’re about a 2.”

“As bad as Dorian was, we have a great opportunity to show people how small communities can survive a storm like that, but we need organisation and communication to help.”

“I would like to see more mandatory preparation across the country, and have persons who know about this and can lead us on this.”
