Bahamas Begins Reconstruction a Month after Hurricane Joaquin

SAN JUAN The Bahamian National Emergency Management Agency began repairs in the six islands most affected by Hurricane Joaquin a month after the storm caused more than $80 million in damage.

Materials and supplies are to be distributed simultaneously based on a needs assessment conducted by the Department of Social Services, NEMA said Tuesday in a statement.

Acklins, Crooked Island, Long Island, Long Cay, Rum Cay and San Salvador were most affected by Hurricane Joaquin, a Category 4 storm that forced some 5,000 people from their homes.

NEMA received support on rapid damage and needs assessment from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the Caribbean Public Health Agency and the Pan-American Health Organization, among other institutions.
