By Aaron Humes: Prime Minister of Belize Dean Barrow has pledged national and regional support to the Commonwealth of the Bahamas in the aftermath of Category 5 Hurricane Dorian, which struck on Sunday.
The Prime Minister wrote his counterpart Hubert Minnis to “express our condolences for any life lost and the significant damage to infrastructure caused as a result of the catastrophic category 5 hurricane.”
Further he pledges, “we stand in solidarity with you; and further, look forward to assisting in any way we can through our National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) and through regional efforts organized by the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).”
The Prime Minister further observes that, “ever-increasing occurrence of powerful hurricanes in our region is a clear and present reminder that our efforts to become a climate resilient region are prudent; and rightfully ought to be accorded our highest priority.”
Five have been confirmed dead as the storm ravaged the islands for two days before turning toward the east coast of the United States and the southeastern states of Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas.
As head of the Commonwealth, the Queen has also written expressing her shock and sadness at the destruction.
Prime Minister Minnis has told reporters that the task now is search and rescue and recovery.
