The home for direct, transparent information leading to the sustainable recovery of The Bahamas affected by Hurricane Dorian.
Hurricane Dorian is the most powerful storm to ever make landfall in the Atlantic in known history. The northern islands of The Bahamas bore the brunt of Dorian’s devastation with its eye hovering over the country in September 2019. With extreme storm surge and sustained winds over 185 mph, the impact on the affected islands was significant. In order to guide an effective, efficient, and transparent recovery process, it is going to take NGOs, the government, and the people of The Bahamas working together as an organized and unified front. The information on this website serves as the most updated place to learn the current state of, and how to join, the recovery.
