The Bahamas prepare for bad weather as tropical storm Humberto approaches the area hit by hurricane Dorian – current path, route, forecast, updates



Bahamas devastated by hurricane are preparing for new storm

The hurricane-devastated Bahamas have more problems. Tropical Storm Humberto is threatening the island of Grand Bahama, and is preparing more than 2,000 people living in shelters and those trying to rebuild their homes after Hurricane Dorian (19459043), 30 miles east of Great Abaco Island and about 145 Miles east of Freeport, Grand Bahama Island, the National Hurricane Center announced on Saturday. Tropical Storm Humberto had maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour, moving at 7 miles per hour in a northwesterly approaching storm. When CBS News caught up with them, the group had loaded four tons of staple food, water, and generators onto a ship.

The inhabitants do everything to prepare themselves. Since only a few boats are intact, the locals bring them to the few dozen people that are left. "I mean, we really do not need another hurricane, you see, we do not need another, but we just have to get ready," said Sinetra Higgs to CBS News Picture shows the trajectory of tropical storm Humberto on September 14, 2019.

Hurricane Dorian devastated the northern Bahamas. Whole neighborhoods were flattened, houses torn, containers and boats hurled inland. Some airports were submerged while the terminals were dotted with debris.

Some residents are frustrated at the government's response especially in the face of another storm on the way. Many residents said that the only help they received came from foreigners – and that they still live without mobile phones, electricity and running water. However, since most of the field teams come from private foreign aid organizations, it is clear to all residents of the most affected communities.
