Relief efforts are underway in the aftermath of the devastating Hurricane Joaquin and many residents in Abaco have already pitched in money, items and service to assist our countrymen in the Southern Bahamas.

The needs of the people most affected by the storm are going to start with basic necessities and evolve toward building materials and more as they try to rebuild and restore some sense of normalcy to their lives.
