-We actually had to run
for our lives when the eye came across. And we had a good Samaritan that saved about 50 people
coming out of work. Just my boyfriend and him
they, like, pushed lampposts out of the way,
literally, to get people out. And and left one of our
neighbors, we lost our neighbor. We left him there
and he was there from Sunday, when we reported him there
and he’s still there. Yeah, the body’s still there,
swollen and everything. You’re on an island where you
don’t know what’s going on. You’re not getting any sense
of communication. Everybody’s saying this is
gonna happen, that’s gonna happen. It doesn’t make no sense. We really, really, really,
need to get off this island. It’s — the stench of death we
walk through to get to the boat. The stench of death is so bad. A lot of people are saying,
“Oh, they’re evacuating.” But when we got to go there,
it’s, “Oh, you go here first,
go to the airport.” You go to the airport
it’s 120 people. And nobody’s giving you any idea
of how to get on the planes. Then they say,
“Oh, a boat is coming.” You go to the boat,
to the dock, to find out if a boat is coming. And they say, “No,
we’re not carrying cargo.” So we don’t know
what’s going on. We just want to know
how to get out of here. -From last night, we’ve been
sleeping outside right there on the floor. On the floor, on the grass! Same thing again tonight. I only have these clothes,
where should I go? I don’t have no where to go.
I ain’t got nobody else. My mom is dead, my brother,
my cousin. -What happened to your family?
-They dead in the water. That body right there by
the tree, that was my brother. I went to just see mommy,
mommy’s still in the floor. That’s her passport,
my mommy passport. The whole bag, I just went back. I find it in the floor. My brother. He dead in the water,
in the hurricane Sunday morning. The tourists don’t have to come
back, because when they come here,
they come spending. Where the money they come spend? They come spend it for us
to build things here. What they do with this? What they build with this? If something happen? You know if that was
in the States or Haiti, you know so much things,
so much help. We don’t have no help here. -We have nothing.
We get no help. I ain’t get no help.
Nobody come help, nobody. Nobody come help, nobody. I don’t know my children
have no food, no nothing. -You don’t know where
your children are? -No my children are in Freeport,
I come to work here. -Okay.
-Yeah and nobody come nothing. They say nothing to nobody,
today makes it six days. Dead people right there
by the church — right there in the back there —
nobody come move them. So you see how high that is? The last door? The water start go inside.
The last door. We hold the door and fight
when the rain blow in and things like that,
we hold the door. I think three or four people
was died, because the whole thing
got over them. You see? They must be just move them
bodies today. You see one there? Yeah, that’s a dead body
right here. In six days
and nobody reached there. -It is very, very, very hard. You can imagine we even can’t,
like, no more go to no gas station. We don’t have no stores. Any time to go to the store
for us to get some food. You understand? With me, I lose everything. But I can’t go out for life.

    Feeling a great source of sorrow for these people however I wonder why they aren't cleaning up themselves living in the Florida keys when we get hit we start cleaning up asap haven't had the dead situation but would place them in an area while getting some order back. We don't wait around for someone else to start.

    I’m so sorry! Heart broken. I know that this is late and I have no idea how to prepare for a hurricane, but there needs to be a place where food and water can be buried underground so that the people can have food and water. That’s just a thought and my opinion. This is a sad, sad thing. I can’t even imagine the strength that it takes to be a survivor of this tragedy. My prayers are with you! This is one of those things we’re we sit and look at these helpless people and we look for ways to help and can’t. Where’s all the good hearted rich people in the world with the heart to help thy neighbor? I know that some are doing but this has went without help for too long. Help these people

    Ok let me make this very clear for everyone on here. There are thousands if not millions of people in America sending whatever help they can to the Bahamas. This includes: food, water, their physical time etc. There are many cynical sarcastic pos Americans and other nationalities who are offering nothing but criticism and advice about building codes and other bs. They are in the minority thank GOD. Bahamas one way or another we'll help you get back on your feet. And you cynical yanks just remember this, karma is a b. By GOD'S grace and mercy you dodged this huge bullet. Get on your knees and thank HIM. Otherwise what Michael did to north Florida will look like nothing if any city any is hit by a cat 5 hurricane with winds topping 180 mph….

    Why are they standing around waiting for a handout?
    Why are you waiting for some stranger to come take your loved ones bodies away? Why not bury your own dead instead of waiting for a stranger to care enough to come do it for you! Get off your lazy asses and bury your own dead!
    What would your ancestors do after a bad hurricane? If there was no one to sell your sad story to, and no Facebook or gofundme to beg from, what would they have done? Not stand around waiting for help that isn't coming , they would band together and begin the clean up process. What is the matter with people today, they are always looking for someone else to fix their problems.
    Secondly, try building houses out of brick and cement, then you would only have flood issues to deal with…a five mile an hr wind could wipe out those shacks they call houses! Why is there no building code in hurricane prone areas? Where I live we have winds over 100 k and it rarely ever makes the news, and with 300 foot tall trees as big around as a mini van dropping everywhere all around us and we had no power for weeks…we got about 30 seconds new coverage and zero help! We cleaned up our own island…so what I'm trying to say is help might not be coming…you need to help yourselves

    About three years ago many people sent well wishes over the internet going viral to the people of Paris and Greece saying, "Pray for Paris!" "Pray for Greece!" But no "Pray for the Bahamas." PLEASE PRAY FOR THE BAHAMAS!!! I guess bc many of them are so-called blacks and Israelites this proves we have no friends like Paris and Greece. No support whatsoever even POC got on the Paris and Greece bandwagon but now no support or prayers to the people of the Bahamas. Yes I played the race card. But I didn't invent it either. PLEASE PRAY FOR THE BAHAMAS!

    And by all means protect those children .
