    u guys live on the sea, no hills or mountains, I didnt know the place was so flat and so been why didnt the government have more disaster preparedness and correct building codes above at least 10ft above ground and fortified places set up in case of something like this, I scratch my head and am very puzzled and the bahamas is one of the richest islands in the world

                  Anybody care to chime in?

                  Technology that can control the intensity and path of a hurricane??? Then put it in park off the coast of Florida!?!?!?

                  To me the weirdest thing is that they will actually rebuild these houses in a hurricane corridor. Next year or the year after, the area will be flattened again. Humans is such a weird specie.

                    Billions of dollars in reconstruction and repairs, dude. Billions.
                    The area will be flattened again in 24 months or so.

                    Told you. Humans are weird. Especially in the comment sections.
                    Hair Hat, the point isn't about "these people" specifically. They were born there. They didn't choose to be there. The point is about people taking very bad decisions overall. Leading to situations like this.

                  That’s what happens if you live on a thin strip of land in the middle of the ocean and a Category 5 comes knocking. Annoys me every time someone says they can’t believe what they’re seeing. What planet do you live on?

                      Question; why weren't these people evacuated prior to the Cat 5 hitting? Plenty warning. Ratio of rich to poor people dead - I wonder. The rich have the means to evacuate. Tragic.

                        @J. Milton Jeffreys Abaco Islands population approx 17.5k, Grand Bahama population approx 51 k. I'm hazarding a guess that with the resources the US/UK has, evacuations could have been carried out.

                      Heartbreaking what nature can do but really points up the necessity for the governments to be able to manage a fiat currency with money created as is, not as debt in special circumstances.

                                      I have been through the missing list. 6000 humans....Anyone playing armchair recovery expert does not know the usual pace of life in these islands. And the locals they know. Where is the USA hospital ship. The British are helping. Whole families. Where is the red cross. IN Nassau. Because the government there wants to control the recovery. Just like Puerto Rico. Looking for legal kickbacks.... Taxing everything coming in... I would imagine

                                          That's not what survivors are saying. Many who have lived through a cat 5 said this was more than just a hurricane.

                                          @Callum Macleod I value his opinion! A Cat 5 Hurricane hit the Bahamas in 1932. And, another separate Cat 5 hit Cuba shortly after. The reason for the devastation compared to 1932 and 2019 is obvious to some people!

And you have me curious, are you also saying that it isn't ignorant to think you can hold someone accountable for 'denying science'? Does that mean we can start prosecuting flat earthers? What might the punishment be?
