Ports reopen in Grand Bahama after Dorian

All ports in Grand Bahama have reopened and business is now fully operational in Nassau – which is the second-most populated cruise destination in the Caribbean.

By Sunday morning local time the US Coast Guard had rescued 308 people in the Bahamas since the Hurricane Dorian response began. USCG is conducting air operations based out of Andros Island, Bahamas. Five MH-60 Jayhawk helicopters are conducting search and rescue missions, area assessments and providing logistical support. Five Coast Guard cutters are providing hurricane response support in the Bahamas.

Equinor said that it would clean up the spills from the South Riding Point oil terminal in the Bahamas, which sustained damage from the hurricane. Oil had been observed on the ground at the terminal site and in surrounding areas.

There were no indications of continued oil leakage from the tanks or of oil spills from the terminal to sea or beaches.
