Abacos Update Please?

Hi;


Can anyone provide an update on the condition of the Abacos? They took a serious hurricane hammering a few years ago and I'm wondering what is going on there for sailors.


Thank you for your responses.

Dual crises of COVID-19 and climate impacts are impeding local recovery efforts, with Abaco still looking like Hurricane Dorian hit just last week

Abaco, Bahamas (August 24, 2021) — Across Abaco, it looks like Hurricane Dorian hit just last week. Mounds of debris remain today, and it will only take one strong storm for that debris to become deadly, reports Project HOPE staff. Many people still live in temporary shelters next to their destroyed homes.

Re: Abacos Update Please?

Much of the hurricane damage has been fixed, but they're currently suffering from a COVID outbreak so when I was there last week many of the stores and restaurants were closed because the owners or workers were sick. Might be worth waiting a month or so, not for worries you'll catch covid (they still have far fewer cases per capita than Florida for example) but just because a lot of places may be unexpectedly closed.
