  1. This story is reprehensible as you published NAMES of victims and some of their families had not been notified.  I cannot believe that BAHAMASPRESS would not be smart enough to realize that that is TERRIBLE journalism.. you lot are now like Sean hannity, and glenn beck, keith olbermann nutjobs with this type of thing.  At least RESPECT other peoples families guys.  this is not like saying oh a dog died today.  I really expect better from you. HONESTLY

  2. Bp are you telling me that in this date and time, witha as much hurricane and bad weather freeport have been hit with, even their proximity the florida is a risk, and the government didn’t even see it fit to have the met office opened in freeport?….THE GOVERNMENT HAS BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS……

  3. The met office closed?  You have GOT to be kidding.  Grand Bahama is in the hurricane zone.  No wonder there was no warning.  Condolences to the family of the deceased.

    • My condolences to the family members of the dead and injured.We have three Cabinet Ministers out of GB and in light of this tragedy and not ensuring that a Met office was functional they must all resign.
