NASSAU, BAHAMAS – One day before deadly Hurricane Beryl slammed into Jamaica, 33 Bahamians were evacuated from the Caribbean nation. The effort was coordinated by the Ministry Of Foreign Affairs.

The charted flight landed at the Lynden Pindling International Airport just before 9 p.m. last night.

Included in the 35-member group were 33 Bahamians and two Caribbean nationals. One being from Anguilla and the other being from the Turks and Caicos. They were all greeted by family and friends.

Two medical students at University of The West Indies, Joliese Johnson and Renee Clarke, described how grateful they were to be among the 35 people evacuated from Jamaica ahead of Hurricane Beryl making landfall.

Tuesday’s evacuation came after Hurricane Beryl continued to gain strength as it headed toward Jamaica.

Foreign Affairs Minister Fred Mitchell, Education Minister Glenys Hanna-Martin, and Labour Minister Pia Glover-Rolle were among those welcoming the group back.
