ABACO, BAHAMAS – Three years after the PLP first called for an investigation into government efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, the Davis administration is now deciding whether a Commission of Inquiry is still necessary.

Prime Minister Philip Davis revealed as much during a press briefing following a service of remembrance for victims of Hurricane Dorian on Friday.

Back in June 2020 the PLP – which was then in opposition called on the Minnis administration to launch an inquiry into the events surrounding Hurricane Dorian, criticizing their efforts, claiming Cabinet had botched the handling of the storm’s aftermath. This as public confusion grew over the total number of people who were missing after the storm.

Hurricane Dorian ravaged parts of Abaco back in 2019, claiming many lives and leaving thousands homeless.

While rebuilding has begun and the island’s economy has seen a relatively tremendous bounce-back, Abaconians are still pushing for more resources to aid in recovery efforts. 

After admitting more could be done, the prime minister also explained that part of the challenge has been supply chain issues but he says it’s something they’re working on.

Davis says over the past few months, some of the issues have been addressed.
