  1. Why r lying about the number of deaths? This is why ppl do not listen to the Media. There r thousands dead. The island smells of dead bodies.

  2. How can u charge these ppl money to fly out? This makes no sense to me. Here comes the corruption and u wonder why the US does not want another Puerto Rico situation.

  3. Local 10 forgot to mention Bahamas Air is making profit out of the "evacuees" (Bahamians who lost everything) by charging them U$75 each person to leave Abaco hell.
