NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Many Abaco residents still live in domes, just one month shy of the third anniversary of Hurricane Dorian. South and Central Abaco MP John Pinder explains residents are still in recovery mode.

It was September 1st, 2019 when Hurricane Dorian destroyed much of mainland Abaco and the surrounding cays, forcing many to relocate and rebuild their lives. Nearly three years after the storm, some residents are still living in domes.

South and Central Abaco MP John Pinder says they are working to assist residents in those makeshift homes.

Last month, Disaster Reconstruction Authority Executive Chairman Alex Storr insisted people living in temporary domes in Spring City, Abaco, will vacate by the end of summer.

Minister Of Transport And Housing Jobeth Coleby-Davis has also indicated the government will soon give notice to those residents.

In the meantime, Pinder says Abaco is making a comeback.

As it relates to hurricane preparations on the island, the central and south Abaco MP says it’s a matter of ensuring residents are prepared.
