        Taking food and other supplies needed in a natural catastrophe is understandable if the stores are not manned. After Katrina, many supermarkets simply unlocked their doors as people needed food and water and the staff could not get to work. Now, truck tires and electronics are a whole different story - that is looting and looters should be shot.

              It's too much to comprehend right now. We have a guy staying onboard who had just come out of Abaco... sounds like the government isnt doing a huge amount to help and the us boating and aviation community have helped the people more.

                Kinda reminds of Bush’s Katrina from a government perspective.
                No one knew exactly where it was going to hit, but they did know within 100 miles, and still didn’t react with basic food and water for a week.
                Not proactive at all, just very reactive
                Super Dome turned into an out of control thug rape & rob nightmare

                Go ahead and get everything staged so you can support area that’s affected.
                I want to say they had hundreds of power trucks already assembled in Daytona
                Not sure about food and hydration.

                I realize it’s the USA, but if you didn’t know, you could hardly tell a hurricane hit the Keys one year later.
                Of course I went exploring off the normal route and saw plenty but also much repair and many new buildings and homes.
                Commerce was in full swing

                It’s quite sickening what those people are having to endure
                What do you do with up to 70000 homeless........on an island?

                I’ve stayed and lived through many here, but nothing remotely close to that.

                  Yes, you wonder where do all those people go on islands that are virtually wiped out. After Katrina, many ended up in the Houston area and never went back.

                    You would be surprised, they will come together. They will survive.
                    Bahamians have family all of over the islands, they help each other out.
                    Biggest issue is Government. Normally they are lost, right now, there are really lost, overwhelmed and just flat out in over their heads.
                    Too proud to ask for help and too stubborn to accept it.
                    Relief is happening in the private sector, both for the wealthy and the not as fortunate.
                    Support and assist where you can, every little bit helps.

                      I saw a video yesterday of an "Islander" and he was FUMING mad.. There was no government presence at all.. No police.. No help of any kind.. He was angry because he knows there are dead people and they need to be searching for them but they are limited in what they can do and how they can gain access..

                      Sad, sad video..

                        You gotta remember.
                        Getting a Government "Job" is the Cats Azz, easy street.
                        NOW, when they are needed, they are overwhelmed.
                        Not an easy situation.

                          What is our (USA) relationship with the Bahamian Government?
                          I’m sure Trump would serve up something, but would they accept it cuz he’s gonna let everyone know he did
                          World Health Organization, Brits? Others?
                          Flights out of military bases in FL couldn’t take 20 minutes, assuming their runway is back operational. Hell, load C130’s up with aid and call them training exercises
                          Imagine police can’t handle it all, so use their CG patrol guys. Do they have any military?
                          Obviously I need to study up on Bahamas

                            This guy was saying that they (they being police/government) were holed up on another island and nowhere to be found. He was ticked because there is/was millions in aide sitting in Florida waiting to be flown in but can't be because the runways haven't been cleared and the roads are still trashed.. Dude was some kind of mad..

                              As I just said to Ole, there is literally millions in aide waiting to be flown in but the airports/runways are not clean yet.. This is coming from one of the "Islanders" that made a video..
