Tourism Down in the Bahamas Due to Dorian
There’s not much great news for tropical climate lovers at the moment.
Hurricane Dorian has left the Abacos and the Grand Bahamas in total devastation over the past two days, forcing travelers who are stranded on the islands to find alternative accommodation and changes in flight schedules.
Due to weather-related danger, the Grand Bahama International Airport, Grand Bahama Island’s Freeport Harbour, and Leonard Thompson International Airport are currently closed. Airports in souther states including Georgia and Florida conducted limited flight services earlier this week, but are scheduled to resume scheduled operations normally today.
Photos from The New York Times juxtapose pictures of the Bahamas before and after Dorian to illustrate the severity of the damages. Buildings that were once part of the Doge Plaza Mall have been completely ripped apart or are submerged in water. Man-O-War Harbor’s seaside docks were also left in shambles.
Commercial airlines are doing their best to accommodate tourists affected by Hurricane Dorian by offering options to change or delay flights in the areas that have been affected. Hotels encourage guests to call hotlines for the latest updates on Dorian and promise to share alerts if moving to emergency shelters is necessary.
