  1. Terrible.  They always get that flooding.  I move to Florida and just prepped for Dorian.  Vlogged the whole ordeal.  It's exhausting…

  2. Where is your heart O House of Israel! Have you sold everything. Have you caught every fish and flying creature in your nets.. Why are you poor and needy when I made you rich! You gave everything away for gold and silver
    Therefore shall I give you away O House of Israel!!

  3. This was more than a hurricane “ this was man made smh ppl wake up

  4. NBC fake news pretending to care , so pathetic

  5. Pink look alike, gosh she is famous!

  6. The Bahamas is a waste hole. Just let it go !

  7. there should be free flights to this place ships going there to help people to help clean up food medicine machines to clean i hope this is whats going on

  8. This islas belong to the england queen

  9. In the Name of JESUS, I bind all demons that cause tornadoes, lightning, damaging winds, floods, hurricanes, fire, bad weather of all kinds. I bind CHANGO, OXUN, EUROCLYDON, BAAL, SEIR, LEVIATHAN, HADADRIMMON, AMURR, and all others. Father, I ask you to send your warring angels (Matthew 26:53) into the heavenlies to do battle with these demons, to knock them off their thrones, take their crowns from their heads, and to write on their foreheads that they have been defeated by the Lord JESUS Christ. Father, I ask that you send the warring angels to block these demons from coming into our city, state, or county. I ask for warring angels to be placed around our property and home for protection from these demons. In JESUS Name, I cover my property, home, possessions and family in the Blood of JESUS. Amen.


  11. Is that ellen denergers?

  12. The world is kicking back at us for reasons unknown. I don't mean to sound bad but in 2 years or maybe less than that we will be seeing Category 6 to 7 hurricanes. Many factors are coming into play in the world that are causing this. We all have to be ready for the worst.

  13. it look like most got out in time

  14. yup it looks like all your prayers have worked? as a tropical storm is now headed to the Bahamas. If you think praying to god as an effect on the temperature of the waters in the southern hemisphere. then well hey… I love it how people are like oh were blessed oh god spared us oh yea he sure did by having dorian moving over the bahamas at 3km per hour he sure showed his mercy


  16. I went through Camille, a category 5 hurricane, when it came onshore at the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We only had the Cat-5 winds of 175 to 185 for a few hours. Even so, with the 30 foot storm surge we lost 260 people in a relatively unpopulated area. The destruction was TOTAL on the waterfront.
    That being said, the affected area in the Bahamas was subjected to similar forces for 36 HOURS. Pretty much nothing can survive that, and even before news reports came out from ground zero, I fully expected casualties to run in the many hundreds of people. I don't see how it could be otherwise.

  17. The Bahamas is a sovereign nation gaining Independence form BRITAIN after 350 years – it has nothing to do with the USofA. It's also the 3rd richest nation in the America's after US and Canada having huge off-shore banking industries located there. Probably much richer then Canada if one gets into the huge, huge off-shore tax havens and 'non-profits' run from there. It is the richest nation per capita in the Caribbean. Prime Minster Hubert Minnis should be using pre-positioned assets, stocks and equipment as this happens (major hurricane) on average every 7.4 years.

    Damages were to 2 islands out of 30 major islands and 700 smaller islands. Other Bahamas islands are on TV asking for more tourists – they should be involved with their own cleanup efforts rather then ask American taxpayers to borrow more money they cannot afford to do what the Bahamas government should be doing.

  18. There are many many planes, and sooooo much food water meds clothes mobile tents etc sooo much stuff in this World, and to think it (takes this long) to love your neighbor like yourself….this happens every time….some countries boast of having the best greatest militaries around.. so busy chasing tankers etc. Please GET ON THE REAL JOB OF HELPING OTHERS INSTEAD OF THAT OTHER "THEATRE" FOR HEAVENS SAKE!!!!

  19. if you guys want to help, u can donate items through amazon!

  20. Wonder how many are running around in America now. 😕

  21. They are part of the British Commonwealth the other partners are sending aid correct ?

  22. it is almost as bad a California.

  23. Thank god I left before it

  24. This is too much for a small nation to handle

  25. Bahamas alley to China. China builds nuclear submarine base in Bahamas. Why China not helping Bahamians? Do you think USA will allow Chinese sub base so close to USA? Bahamas are lucky USA helps at all.

  26. this was a terrible storm and the govt of the Bahamas cant handle anything i feel very bad for the good people of the Bahamas

  27. The announcer seems like she's about to detonate

  28. 50 dead, 1,300 missing, illnesses running rampant and losing everything must be so damned heartbreaking.
