Bahamians struggle for a way forward after Hurricane Dorian’s devastation

NASSAU, Bahamas – Shella Moneistime paced outside a packed government shelter for hurricane victims.

Her 3-week-old son wore a clean diaper as he napped inside. She had a cot and three meals a day. But she was distressed.

“We get food. We get water. We sleep,” Moneistime, 31, said, her voice cracking. “The point is: How long we going to be in there?”

It’s been almost two weeks since Hurricane Dorian leveled Moneistime’s home on Great Abaco island and no one here can answer that yet.
