"Some spots. Hurricane Dorian wreaked unimaginable havoc on the bahamian islands known as the abacos. There's not enough words. In the dictionary to describe what hope count a lot like after that storm. Hope town has been Vernon Malone's home for all of his 82 years. His family has lived here since 1785. He's the town baker and grocer, and he and his wife rode out the storm in his store. It survived, but their home just up the street did not. The entrance went right in there. Vernon's son Brian had a home just around the corner. Had a home. That pile of rubble we see there. That's actually two and a half houses. Mine's on the bottom. Hope town is a bahamian landmark. Its candy striped lighthouse dates to 1863 and is pictured on the country's $10 bill. The lighthouse stood up to Dorian, but as we saw coming into the harbor, not much else did. I hear generators everywhere. This is how you guys are getting through. Yep. Yep. Brian Malone and Matt Winslow and American who owns a vacation home on the island, told us why all those generators are still running. The substation in marsh harbor, which feeds us the powers destroyed, and then of course you can see all the utility poles are pretty much destroyed. So this isn't a case where you come in and replace some poles and you flick a switch. This is months and months and months of work. Hope town is on one of several small islands ravaged by Dorian, which then moved across 7 miles of open water to marsh harbor the largest town in the abacos, at least 60 people died in marsh harbor, and destruction is still everywhere. Total damage and loss from Dorian is estimated at $3.4 billion. When you see the extent of the destruction, where do you even begin? How do you even begin? That's always the question. Where do we begin? The bahamian prime minister at the time, Hubert minnis, and his aide, vianna Gardner, visited marsh harbor with us, and pointed to a top priority, restoring electric power. How do you bring this back? The power we had to make the termination to set up our micro grids. The microgrids prime minister menace is talking about are small scale systems, more and more their solar arrays with battery storage for when the sun's not shining. They can either feed electricity into the larger grid or operate independently to power a single facility or a neighborhood. The way electricity has been produced in The Bahamas is with diesel fuel generating stations on each inhabited island, about 30 in all, feeding power to everyone through overhead lines. The main power plant for this island is literally 25 miles south of here. That's 25 miles of line that has to be rebuilt. Chris Burgess and Justin Locke run the island's energy program for an American nonprofit called the Rocky Mountain institute. They have solar projects throughout hurricane alley. After category 5 Maria hit Puerto Rico in 2017, they put microgrids on the roofs of ten schools. Maria also brushed St. Vincent. This is its first micro grid. Now the island's energy program has come to marsh harbor. So how big will this solar array be? 15 acres. Right through here. That microgrid will satisfy 10% of marsh harbor's total power needs, and will be built right between its government center and hospital. Both were without power for weeks after Dorian. This is high ground, which makes it less vulnerable to storm surge and other types of disaster events. So if a storm like Dorian hits again, the power to these two critical facilities stays on. Correct. The push to build storm proof solar microgrids in The Bahamas began in 2017, after hurricane Irma, another category 5 storm tore through tiny ragged island at the southern tip of the island chain. After I get island was devastated, I made a statement let us show the world what can be done. We may be small. But we can set an example to the world. So it's your goal to make ragged island a green island. Absolutely. Absolutely after which we can expand it. We can expand it. To see the prime minister's green experiment, we flew to ragged island with Whitney hasty, CEO of government owned utility, Bahamas power and light. Engineer Burlington strong met us there, and took us to what he calls the very first hurricane proof solar microgrid being installed in The Bahamas. Unlike other solar designs, it's very low to the ground. So this installation is rated to withstand a 180 mile an hour winds. Which is an even harder punch than Irma landed back in 2017. It was significant devastation on the south island. As you can see some of the pools snapped right at the very base of the pork right at the base. Is that what happened to all over the island? That happened throughout the island. This microgrid will produce enough electricity for ragged islands roughly 100 residents. The prime minister calls it a laboratory for the solar future. The past is a diesel generator needing boats to deliver fuel from hundreds of miles away. A system Whitney hasty says is a nightmare. And some were almost on the verge of running out of fuel in some of these islands because bad weather sometimes prohibits the ships from actually getting to some of these locations. The bahamian government spends nearly $400 million a year on imported fuel to keep its power plants running and passes that cost along to its citizens. They pay three to four times what we pay on the mainland U.S. electricity here. Right. And that isn't price gouging. I mean, that's just inherent cost. Everything costs more in the islands. The bill to install this new solar microgrid is $3 million. Hasty insists, it's money well spent. So you have this initial big outlay to build these panels, but over time, the

"Small cessna safely to the ground at Palm Beach international airport. The pilot of that plane, one of the passengers who had no flying experience, but had to take over when the initial pilot became incapacitated. Never had anything like this happen this crazy. I've heard of it happening at other places, but not to me. Robert Morgan and air traffic controller at PBI was on a break Tuesday when a coworker's alarm pressed him into service. They'd tell me, hey, there's a pilot is incapacitated. I'll get a serious situation. I feel like you have a lot of airplanes. When you do to help them, since you're a flight instructor, we think you can do it. Morgan stealed himself. Took a big, deep breath. I sat down at the radar scope, and I said, I'm talking to this pilot now. Morgan hadn't flown the particular cessna model, but used a picture of the cockpit as an aide. Told him to keep aiming at the big pavement. And just start reducing your throttle so that you can start a slow descent in and when I just kept giving him the altitude readouts. And I'll fire cruise out there to the aircraft now about a 5 mile final appears to be inbound now. Emergency crews were ready on the ground. I tried to keep them calm and he was a very calm person already. So it worked out great. It led to a successful touchdown. Kind of adrenaline rush, but I was like kind of almost shocked myself that it worked. The pair are getting kudos from other pilots. Did you say the passengers landed the airplane? That correct. Oh my gosh, that was a great job. No fine experience. No word on the status of the pilot, but the two passengers on board were unhurt. Fight back. As for Morgan, his plan is to get back in the air tomorrow. He's got another lesson to teach. John shame the WP TV. News channel 5. Yeah, so wow, you know, the thing that is amazing about not only just landing this airplane and we have the video of it and the guy did an amazing job. Remarkable, absolutely phenomenal. You know what? The thing that's even more remarkable that they didn't mention in either of these two videos is the fact that before he got everything under control. So when this thing first happened in the pilot went incoherent, and he slumped over the yoke, that airplane took a nosedive, and it descended 4000 feet in 30 seconds, I think, I read. And it was basically almost out of control. And this guy somehow managed to level the wings and pull it out of the dive without overstressing the airframe. And got the thing under control. Which is a phenomenal thing for someone who it's phenomenal for someone to have that presence of mind to do that. So I'm imagining that he was already sitting in the right seat, but maybe not. That's why he called himself a pilot passenger because he was sitting up in the right seat. So he was already sitting there, but I mean, still, if he has no flying experience, that's not, I think it still takes great presence of mind and awareness and courage really to realize this variant situation and act on it quickly enough to prevent a bigger tragedy or to prevent tragedy. So what that proves to all of us stuff is that anybody can fly one of these caravans that you fly. That was the comment I made, I think that's somewhere. I don't care of it. It's so easy a passenger to play it. No, seriously, I hope we get to hear more from this passenger at some point because just listening to his voice on the radio, he's very calm and collected and he obviously was calm enough to and had enough just presence of mind to be able to listen to the instructions that he was being given, follow those instructions to not panic. I think that'd be very panic inducing moment for most people who are not pilots to find themselves at the control of care is not a huge airplane, but it's not one 72. It's quite a bit bigger than that, and it's a turboprop. It's not a piston engine, so it responds a little bit differently. And there's a lot more. Just there's just a lot going on if you're not familiar with flying an airplane. I haul boxes has actually probably it was a U.S. Navy seal who enjoyed years and years of black budget pilot training. Likely story. But of course, Israel identity couldn't be revealed. Exactly. So I looked for some current pictures of the airframe that November 3 three three Lima. Delta. And this is one that I guess it had the floats on it or the M 50. I'm sure it does a lot of flying in the Caribbean and The Bahamas and things. Yeah, in fact, it took off from somewhere in The Bahamas from marsh harbor harbor in The Bahamas. And you can see the flight path there on flight aware and then it's kind of easy to tell exactly where the problem occurred and the thing just started diving and taking a sharp left turn and then he basically recovered it and got it pointed in the right direction and then of course with the help of the air traffic controllers. They managed to get him safely on the ground. The other thing that it mentioned is that he the air traffic controller who was also a flight instructor got a printout of the layout of the cockpit..

"I just want to point out that this occurred before we started recording for once. So I can only imagine what's going to happen after we stop recording. We'll cross that bridge when we get there. Yes, there is a new tweet coming out of China of 53 seconds ago that says there were 113 passengers on board, no fatalities, several minor injuries, which is obviously always great to hear. This is a very preliminary information, but any sort of preliminary information of that nature is welcome. Yeah, absolutely. It looked like a number of people were safely evacuating the aircraft in the videos that made it onto social media so far. So hopefully we continue to see the reports that only minor injuries. I'm moving on to what I thought we would lead the show with this week. Because normally, without that breaking news, this would lead this episode and probably nearly any other. You can't really talk about this story. So I'm just going to quote the guy directly. This is a passenger on a cessna two O 8 caravan that's flying from marsh harbor to fort Pearson, Florida. Getting a hold of air traffic control and saying, quote, I've got a serious situation here. My pilot has gone incoherent. I have no idea how to fly the airplane. One thing stands out is that for someone who has no experience flying an aircraft whatsoever, simply figuring out how to key the mic to transmit that message, that's an accomplishment in and of itself, I think. Yeah. I mean, hopefully, as part of this, they received some sort of safety briefing and they were talking to the pilot beforehand. But usually that safety briefing doesn't include here's how to fly the plane in case I can't anymore. The passenger got a hold of air traffic control, air traffic control said, hey, where are you? The guy says, I have no idea. And then they figured out where he was. They talked him down, and he successfully landed the cessna caravan. At Palm Beach, on the runway, and the video shows it. A damn good landing. Yeah. And this comes at the FAA says after the pilot flying initially became sick and what they say against the controls, putting the aircraft into a nosedive and sharp term. So not only did the passenger successfully land the aircraft quite well on top of that, but he actually recovered the aircraft out of a nosedive and sharp turn to then figure out how to communicate with ATC and then land the aircraft. And the landing was so good that when air traffic control was talking to an American, I think it was an Airbus aircraft that had to delay its departure or maybe a rival because of this they kind of did a double take when they were having their conversation saying like ATC said hold for that sets the passengers just landed the plane and they said, okay, we'll hold here and then a couple seconds later, the pilots take Americans like wait, wait, did you see the pilot landed the airplane? So yeah. There was a passenger. Or the passenger light of the year. It was such a good landing that even the commercial pilots of that American aircraft didn't think anything of it. So they were cruising along at 9825 feet, and their approaching the Florida coast, and all of a sudden they did a, they did a 90° turn, but they did a 90° turn the long way. So what does that two 70? They go from 9825 feet. Max vertical speed is negative 11,584 feet in the one 80. And then he pulls it up. So this is assuming we're the passenger gains control of the aircraft, climbing back at 9280 feet. All happens very quickly. So pilot loses slams forward on the controls passenger, I guess, yanks him off the controls and pulls it back up. And so they make it back up to about 9200 feet. And at this point, they're talking between the air traffic controllers and this passenger who is now the pilot. And he manages to kind of bring it over the coast, figure it out and then lines it up with the runway and lands. I mean, this is crazy. A couple of circumstances here that aided the miraculous landing and that when the passengers got in touch with their traffic control, they ended up getting a phone number. They had a working cell phone and coverage, and they were able to call air traffic control. I think in West Palm Beach and who they ended up talking to one of the FAA controllers happened to be a certified flight instructor with experience on cessna aircraft, which happens to be extremely valuable information. And they were able to print out, I think, the instrument cluster and the controls for the cessna and kind of walk the passengers through what they would need to do, whether that's flaps or I'm sure there was landing gear for this aircraft. I think it was a float plane, I think. It previously it had previously been a float plane, but those had been removed prior to this. Some of the pictures I saw had float, some, but they were able to very expertly guide this aircraft down to the ground, just again, one of those circumstances where everything lined up perfectly, including the aircraft on the central line of the runway. And this all happened in 40 minutes. Yeah. The whole incident from pilot losing the ability to operate the aircraft to the passenger landing at 40 minutes. Pretty incredible. And also, these things happen. This is not the first time that FAA controllers have guided a passenger to land the aircraft. I remember several of them instances of this and the not too distant past. But unfortunately, this is not one of those very, very new aircraft that have the one button push to auto land the aircraft. The government autoland. Yeah, that would have been a really good use case for that. I don't think we've heard of an actual event of that happening just yet. No, I don't think so. Proof positive that such a thing is a very valuable button to be pressed. But in some cases, you don't need it. If I'm this guy, now here's, I mean, obviously, if it's me, I'm like, okay, I can do this. I'm going to go get my pilot's license. If you're this guy, I don't know who this guy is. Does he say I'm going to go get my pilot's license? Or does he say I'm done flying? I landed it on my first try. I'm done. He was cool under pressure. He says, we hear over the ATC chatter that he has no flying experience, but he clearly had his wits about him and some aviation knowledge. He was able to call out, this is my descent right, I think he said he read out the feet per minute of the dissenter, a sense. So he clearly had some of the terminology. He knew what squawk code was. They asked him for the button on the transponder. So there was, I think, a higher degree of knowledge and information than your typical airline passenger. But at the end of the day, someone who's never flown an aircraft, I don't think it matters how much they know about the controls, but actually doing it until you sit there. Exactly. I mean, more power to them, an amazing job..

"Ritchie alongside cherry Evans back with you for another Sunday edition of the picture I'm doing okay J. it's great to be back once again here on TD green and I will get a lot of things to discuss today and I'm particularly going to be very interested in and hopefully all of our listeners will as well about what's going to be what's going on in the Bahamas you know because ever since the hurricane Dorian hit there and it just kind of settled in you know and it was just really tragic to see everything I'm really kinda anxious to see how things are progressing at this particular point and how the golfing world is helping out as I mentioned earlier but as of as of now these are these are kinda round numbers sixty dead twelve hundred missing seventy thousand folks are homeless the damage estimate put at about seven and a half billion dollars there are twelve golf courses in the Bahamas and half of them were directly impacted by hurricane Dorian one of them was Abaco club on Abaco island winding bay and the Abaco club has launched a fundraising effort dedicated to providing immediate disaster relief for residents of great Abaco island which is in the northern part of the Bahamas a lot a lot of golfers have stepped up tiger Darren Clarke Justin Thomas Rickie Fowler Jordan speed are all contributing and asking people to to pitch in Michael Jordan and Tom Brady among others among other athletes who have also stepped up as well on the phone with us right now is our first guest is we're going to talk a little bit more about this said this devastating development in the Bahamas category five hurricane Dorian made landfall a couple weeks ago with heavy rain and sustained winds of a hundred eighty five miles per hour the most powerful hurricane to hit that area since CBN began tracking these sort of things and he is the founder and CEO of southward development which operates the Abaco club David southwards on the tee to green gas line which is right now David how you doing thanks for doing this with us today good I'm I'm doing well thanks Jay you know I I also saw something that that said nearly one third of your employees at the Abaco club this was as of about a week ago were unaccounted for what's the latest on that can you bring us up to date yeah my I'm so happy that they that you know we we have a hundred and seventy eight employees that the in our community and it took about five days but we finally found all one hundred and seventy eight which was a small miracle considering that many of our many of our staff live in March Arbor the town that was so badly affected by the storm so it was as you can well imagine a bit of mass confusion and we file you know we had rescue teams going into the area trying to find them and eventually we did that's good news yeah I was gonna ask you also where did they stammer where where did they find shelter or a place to you know just to settle in well while the storm was there you know that the Tories urgent mind boggling it in a way I mean there were people that were washed out of their homes and and literally walked out of their homes and clung on to whatever they could there were some that found refuge on rooftops some were able to you know were able to ride it out in their in their homes in some form or fashion it was just chaos you know family for being separated by the water UP board there's so many accounts of people being walked out to sea and and things like that so it was just crazy David tell us a little bit about about that area that's the northern part of the Bahamas and the the the tip of the island Abaco island was one of the first the points were were Dorian came came ashore was it not yeah Abaco it the island itself is a hundred and twenty two miles long and the storm the eye of the storm can you get dead in the center of the island which is where the town March Arbor is located and then proceeded north we're south of that which which they've dubbed the the total devastation but you know the storm yet we were obviously watching it approach you know bill out the you know hours coming up and and it did everything darted turning bad you know the wind picked up it went to a category five as well now no there with the harvest moon though the water was up two you know it's high they get without a storm the surges were fifteen to twenty feet March harbors basically at sea level or a few feet above sea level and then you know the final piece that made this the perfect storm so to speak was that it was going about two miles an hour when it hit the island so we just stood there and just you know beat the beat the island beat the town overall the the damage assessment you know we've we've heard a lot of different numbers and whatnot how much devastation was there to Abaco golf course and and can you also describe maybe some of the devastation that happened further north from where you guys were yeah so with with our community the Abaco club are damaged with the wind we we're twenty miles south of the of the eyes of our win meters did have the stain winds of one eighty five in god at over two hundred there was much higher and end up in March however by the way but so we we didn't incur any structural damage with lots of little things lots of trees left to clean up miscellaneous roof shingles and and shatters and and things like that so we we kind of look like a normal hurricane blew by meet our cleanup was already underway the golf course will be fine lots of trees down but the you know the course itself is what will be okay we've actually had a lot of rain sensor which is good hand washing the falls off the plants and and the course and everything else so it weird way this will this rain has been a blessing sense but you know that the town and north of the town hard to read much of March are much of Marty barber just literally got wiped out I mean the pictures that you see are true it was leveled and you were also told that the I. with people of tornadoes which makes sense but you know I I know people that lived in the marsh harbor for example in multi million dollar ocean front homes that were built out of concrete and and just felt as hard as you can build something and those were destroyed as well so it it wasn't a a an issue of of you know a big storm hitting Chantilly built the doctors that you sometimes hear and islands of schools is a real buildings David Southworth Southworth development is with us on TV green today talking about relief and recovery efforts in the Bahamas twelve golf courses down there and half of them directly impacted by hurricane Dorian two weeks ago when it reached landfall there by David also I also saw something yesterday tropical storm Humberto is in the area what are you hearing about that are you are you concerned about maybe getting hit again I know you I spoke to our guys the this morning for example who are down there and they said it's just on off heavy rain light when compared to what you know to what it was a couple weeks ago so I don't think they'll be any real impact the storm is is east of us and north of us and so we're just getting rain yeah now you mentioned if you're you're clean up efforts are already underway being there and being kind of in the hurricane territory you you you have a plan are you half of the value of a contingency plan for these kind of things yeah we're used to I mean every year you get a hurricane scare and so we have you know we have our storm preparations and and protocols button and.

"Authorities in the bahamas say they are expecting even more horrible news in the wake of hurricane dorian medical staff telling c._n._n. As they treat the many wounded that they are dreading and bracing themselves to learn how many are dead the storm killed at least thirty people by last official count but given the overwhelming damage to the islands and the hundreds of people who remain missing behaving officials believed the real death toll is quote quote unimaginable new video. Today gives an example of hurricane durians forest. You're looking right now at a hummer. That's around six thousand pounds. The the powerful floodwaters picked up that vehicle and slammed it through the side of house during his currently off north carolina's outer banks as a category one hurricane still flooding towns and knocking out power but it is the bahamas reeling from total disaster the u._s. coastguard alone has rescued get more than two hundred people there. A helicopter crew described seeing the avocado islands in the bahamas for the first time. The town was just looks like a landfill saw. The houses were dismantled. It was trash everywhere in ever c._n._n.'s patrick ofman reports parts for us now from the bahamas where he tells us he was struck by the silence and the destruction and the stench of death areas of of grand bahama island means driving through still flooded streets demand streets that are no longer streets. This area in the east of the island highland has until now been inaccessible since the storm little to no help has arrived the force of the hurricane through cars through buildings the storm orbital out here the category five leveling whole towns many rode out the storm in their homes. Many did not survive pastor. Joey saunders was on the third floor of his home with his son. When the storm surge crashed in these saturday make out to the second floor of the house and been put ten minutes in aside to flow to the third floor you know in the modern that flow optima head and we felt like strong current trying to break loose everything he cracks and this was in the middle of the night one thirty in the morning and then the current was so strong then the roof sarah to lift a nest thing i remember i was underneath the water my son's getting i noticed he had to searched like i guess he just disappeared socially and i heard him screaming daddy daddy daddy. He was in the water at that point right. He's ready gone in minutes later. When i came on the water i tried my hand. I caught onto the trust and re roof carried mealy so we will lake but six hundred feet away away from each other's for two days and be caught up into the pine tree with thirty two feet high surf the water carried. You know pine tree in the middle of the night. Your son was a ways away from you. What was going through your mind. You must have been terrified. Yes i was hoping that he was alive and he thought i had also also wasn't tells you know the two days later that'd be so he was under the trailer idea not sold another government has warn warn people the death count could spike in places like iraq where everyone knows of dead or missing family and neighbors that news is no surprise even though this is one of the hardest hit areas help from the government is yet to arrive either. The government is on his way. He doesn't take a bit of time. Can you are the settlements but they do anything. Gradually you know. Do you wish they were moving quicker. I yes i wish it can move quicker. People desperately need food and water before time time runs out a lot of lost most of their clothes water food basics right now. It and we are in the town of hierarchy. This is where dorian category five came in installed. These people had category five winds for over for four hours. They say behind me what house just had the front of it knocked in and it was completely flooded. Believe it or not this used to be a neighborhood. There was house after house <music> after house. They were all gone. There were three people who were in this house. A mother her daughter and a granddaughter houses swept away into the ocean knows where they are. They are officially listed as missing but residents say they fear that most likely they were swept in the ocean and it will never be seen again throughout the day. We've seen helicopters coast guard helicopters hovering over spots in this area residents say that's how they know. Another body has been found and the grim work continues and at this point we're told by residents. They don't expect for anymore survivors to be jake patrick ottoman. Thanks so much for that story c. n. N.'s paula newton joins me now live from a different part of the islands <hes> she's at an airfield in nassau which is now being used as a staging area for aid and rescue rescue teams in paula. I mean frankly it could take years for the bahamas to recover from this. If ever the bahamas will be for for many decades likely transformed by this and the reason is that you were dealing with islands and keys that are isolated at times spanning over several hundred miles this says the deployment area unfortunately jake and not for lack of trying with the aid effort has been in fact spotty and chaotic you have that mix of both government and volunteer aid and given they they said how widespread the needed the need is it is difficult to really ascertain if people are getting everything that they need and when we first start with the basics the food in the water then there's people who need to be evacuated and then as patrick just told you in very grim detail there is search and recovery and that search and recovery mission is also very important gordon because it keeps away disease that call listen. We're here in nassau. This is also where they're bringing evacuees. I spoke to elizabeth nixon. I mean her story about. Even getting outta here was crazy. They put the kids or nieces and nephews in coolers to get them out but after that they had to split up at the airport in marsh harbour what happens some of them came here. Those children with some relatives tips are still at the airport tick. Listen to elizabeth nixon. Those babies can't stand minute avenue eaten last night. They said there was an airport and they they at the airport right now. Daily front that is so chaotic you know if those will catch trying to push through a lot you know the issue here is that she saying it's frantic that is not the way on day six that you wanna see all of this unfold and she's desperate because she knows that those children have not eaten. She knows they do not not have water. Jake <hes> listen the challenge ahead. It is quite significant all right paul. Thank you so much for that reporting <hes>. Let's go now to dr caroline burnett galloway. She's on the phone from the bahamas. Choose the medical chief of staff at princess margaret hospital which is the only hospital in nassau still able to treat critical all patients in the entire bahamas <hes> doctor.

My family is fine. <hes> and we're all rolling up with is a great team effort. It's it's tiring. It's exhausting <hes> <hes>. It's the most traumatizing hearing some of the stories of our patients that come in but we have to keep going. You're the only one taking critical patients right now. How in in nassau how strained or your resources we've come together and and deployed stop and me shepherd through that we're managing. <hes> initial wave of critical patients from arbuckle has they've come in. We've admitted taken them to the operating freaking there too if necessary i know the second wave of the walking wounded are coming in initially they came by koos guard helicopter and the airports so now open to regular plates are bringing more patients in but <hes> with with very strict and tight triage resorts in the patient offending them to a public health clinic or after come into this. Don't you told c._n._n. That you're treating the wounded right now but preparing for the dead you believe that the death toll is is much higher than thirty right correct. How much higher do you think it might be i. I can't estimate but it's going to be high. We are preparing some people coming to you. <hes> have been trapped in their homes in some cases on top of their homes for days on end. What kind of you've conditions are they. In by the time they get to you so dehydrated exhausted <hes> emotionally exhausted i <hes> <hes> somehow metabolic abnormalities from the long exposure and they had a chronic illness like diabetes hypertension.

There's still a feeding people across. Bahamas doesn't seem to be a quick end in sight certainly for their work. Chef andres joins me now. You literally just landed a helicopter from the. I know you have teams. Where is the biggest need right now. Well is everywhere ourselves. <hes> <hes> today we use rich thing on the north of eighty sites times of nine thousand meals only mainly. We've been delivering. I mean we have seen a hotel of a beach resort right on the edge of the city of marsh harbour. <hes> for example in the host was allow people <hes> two days ago <hes> today's make teams tommy the hospital's down to only sixty people the the u._s. coastguard. They've been doing an amazing job moving people out of islands eighteen. Their work should be congratulated. I mean u._s. Coastguard they are the best always the mother they also credible weaving his yes. Sarah and there are diverse and you know we've been going to show my less like for example. Green turtle cay sites hundred fifty people very close to marsh harbour. I'm when we landed there. We found community that they were working together thoroughly organized. They have the the local volunteer police law. Oh god gear firemen and everybody seemed to be working together. I did the first rock yesterday five hundred which is on three hundred pieces of fruit some water today. We did another drop so good poppy by w._c. They began doing least of all the things they need. Every community needs so so much that if you'll keep multiplying for every little island every little our neighborhood <hes> the aid that has to arrive in in the next days is going to be massive. I want to ask you about that. It's it's horrid from you know over here to kind of get a sense of how organized things are at this stage. I just talked to the prime minister and he said well. They're they're assessing stuff. They're going to set up distribution of food and water. It's hard to tell how much is actually you know organized and set up and how much is just sort of aspirational at this point well in these situations aspiration is happens often but you wouldn't have believed that that there is a plan <hes> sometimes <hes> we saw so it today you are in the airport. These we call all these see avi asian all the aviation which is very much the private <hes> airport eastern wine. That's how it sounded limber pay much or the a._n._c. <hes> so right now. He's very quiet seeks hours ago. These will is also tokyo's u._s. Guards coastguards u._s. Border patrol a lot of planes private planes some of them mm-hmm for <hes> lecture others going to pick up the people he's been. He's been a very long day in this airport with a lot of people waiting for hours hours through a golf or some people they've not been able to go all in and a half to be waiting tomorrow so on that level yes. This is third day after the hurricane. It's it's some some careless because it magnitude by what i think is going to be happening is that we have seventy seventy thousand people in those two islands twenty thousand in grand abbot goal and fifty thousand in grand bahamas is at a lower people especially the people we means. We're going to start moving out in every with the helicopters and i think we've done more than ten twelve thirteen fourteen trips. We always are taking people with us us.
