After Dorian, Bahamas tackles massive clean-up - PBS NewsHour

Posted: 12 Sep 2019 07:09 AM PDT

HIGH ROCK, Bahamas — Pastor Jeremiah Saunders stood in the golden afternoon sun and barely blinked as he debated what to pick out from the ruins of the church he built 22 years ago in the seaside village of High Rock on the eastern end of Grand Bahama island.

A black-and-blue tie floated nearby in a pool of water and beyond that a ruptured set of drums toppled. Nearby, bone-white sea shells nestled in tufts of grass, flung by surging floodwaters that a week ago carried Saunders for 200 yards until he grabbed hold of a large pine tree and spent two days on a branch after Hurricane Dorian hit the island.

"I spoke to the water: 'Peace, be still.' It never listened," Saunders said Wednesday with a wide smile. But then he grew serious as he focused on the daunting cleanup task facing the tens of thousands of Bahamians who live on the two islands in the northern Bahamas that were devastated by the Category 5 storm.

It will be slow process that some are tackling in very small steps. Saunders picked out two hammers, five screwdrivers and three treasured Bibles.

In contrast, 67-year-old Mary Glinton in the nearby fishing village of McLean's Town wasted no time getting rid of all her ruined possessions. She created three piles of clothes stiffened by mud and water and set them on fire. A white lace curtain, a bright pink wind-breaker and an old pair of black pants soon went into the flames. She most lamented that all her church clothes were ruined.

"I love blue, and most of my dresses are blue," she said standing near the fire in green flip-flops, her legs caked with mud. She also lamented the loss of her 1-year-old pet hog, Princess.

A preliminary report estimates Dorian caused a total of some $7 billion in damage, but the government of the Bahamas has not yet offered any figures. Crews have started to remove some debris on both islands, but they are moving slowly to avoid accidentally disturbing any bodies lying in the rubble. The official death toll stands at 50, and Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said he expects the number to significantly increase.


The grave reality of Hurricane Dorian's devastation in the Bahamas is becoming more evident each day. Great Abaco Island is virtually uninhabitable, and there's major destruction near Freeport and its surroundings on Grand Bahama. Stephanie Sy, the NewsHour's new national correspondent, talks to Christy Delafield of Mercy Corps.

As the cleanup continues, the first hints of normalcy could be seen in Freeport, a city on Grand Bahama that is operated by a private company, which provides utilities and charges residents without any government intervention. Lights began to flicker on in some neighborhoods, and crews were seen repairing transformers in other areas.

Among those celebrating the return of electricity was rental car company driver Clifton Williams, who was driving home from work when he saw an illuminated streetlight for the first time since the hurricane.

"I didn't expect that so quickly," he said. "First thing I do, I cut on the fan and cool off myself," he added, saying he slept well for the first time in more than a week thanks to the fan.

But the small villages that dot the eastern coast of Grand Bahama have barely received any help. Some residents hitchhike daily from Freeport to their destroyed homes to sort through their belongings and clean up.

Tereha Davis, a 45-year-old fisherwoman, said she was unable to find a ride one day and ended up walking eight miles under the blistering sun. Davis was setting up piles of things she salvaged until she could find someone who could give her a ride back to Freeport with all her possessions. On Wednesday, she walked through McLean's Town wearing bright purple surgical gloves, taking a break from cleaning as she looked for something sweet to drink for a boost of energy. She found nothing.

She and others said they had not seen any government officials and have only received food and water from some nonprofit groups.

The prime minister acknowledged the situation in a televised address late Wednesday.

"There have been problems in the coordination of this aid due to the magnitude of this devastation," Minnis said, adding that he understands the deep frustration of those dealing with "bureaucratic roadblocks" and pledged to reduce the red tape and bring in more aid and extra personnel.

"There are no words sufficient to describe this tragedy," Minnis said. "No Bahamian has ever seen anything like this in their lifetime."

As they wait for more help, people across Grand Bahama waded into the cleanup, tossing out mattresses, tearing off roof shingles and clearing branches and power lines as they stood near concrete walls that Dorian knocked down.

At his Beulah Land Ministries church, the 61-year-old Saunders had been preparing to open a small boarding place for visiting mission groups before Dorian hit. He stood surrounded by gleaming white toilets and sinks, piles of shiny brown tiles and soggy rolls of burgundy carpet.

"I am going to rebuild," he said in the ruins of his church. The only thing that remained unscathed was a wooden crucifix that he nailed to a wall 22 years ago.

Bio Clean Of Utah Offers Water Damage Restoration In Salt Lake City - Press Release - Digital Journal

Posted: 09 Sep 2019 04:10 PM PDT

Bio Clean of Utah, a Utah based company under The Flood Co., would like to make Utah residents aware of their water damage restoration services. Water damage can occur as a result of a number of different things, from heavy flooding to damaged appliances, leaks, and accidents. No matter what precautions one may take, one's home may sometimes suffer serious water damage, and finding a professional to help dry and restore the damaged area properly is crucial to preserving the home's integrity. Bio Clean of Utah has the knowledge and skill required to attend to all kinds of water damage.

"The most common problems that homeowners experience in their homes is water damage," says the company, a statement that is echoed on their website. "Water can damage carpet, drywall, floors, and a whole lot more. The longer the water sits, the more likely other problems such as mold and mildew are to arise. The water damage remediation technicians at The Flood Co. are highly trained and certified in water damage restoration; in most cases we can dry out your property in as few as 2-3 days. We can take care of any type of water and flood damage, including leaky and broken pipes, toilet and sink overflow, and dishwasher, water heater, and washing machine malfunction, in addition to storm damage. We can also do sewage damage cleanup and removal as well as provide mold removal and reconstruction."

Damage from water and bacterial growth can begin as quickly as a few hours after exposure. If one should find themselves facing a major spill, they are advised to remove as much water as possible by blotting and mopping. They should also remove rugs or other floor coverings from the wet area. Homeowners are further advised to wipe furniture, prop wet furniture cushions, and place aluminum foil under furniture legs. It is also important to move photos, paintings, and other art objects to a safe, dry location, and books should be packed tightly to avoid warping of their pages. Homeowners that take these precautions while waiting for the specialists to arrive and further mitigate the damage done to their belongings will find the process of restoration far easier and more effective than it would be otherwise.

There are a number of actions one must be careful to avoid doing following water damage. Firstly, it is important to avoid entering a room with standing water until the electricity has been turned off in order to reduce the risk of injury—and even death—by electrocution. Using a household vacuum to remove water can be dangerous, so it is advised that one wait for a professional to deal with the situation. Tacked down carpet should not be lifted or moved, electrical appliances should not be used, and mold should not be disturbed until the professionals arrive.

It is vital that homeowners act fast whenever there is a risk of serious water damage so that the damage done is kept to a minimum. As Bio Clean of Utah says, "Water damage remediation is an emergency business. That is why we are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our quick response reduces your suffering and saves money. Water damage claims in Salt Lake City increase substantially if prompt action is not taken to contain the damage."

The company has been serving Northern Utah and South West Wyoming for over 20 years, specializing in water damage restoration, fire and smoke damage restoration, mold damage restoration, and air duct cleaning. Using NADCA cleaning guidelines, they ensure that their clients' homes are restored fully to the state they were in before any sort of damage occurred. "Over the years, we've made many improvements and refinements to our restoration methods," says the company. "We are happy with the results and we are confident you will be too. If we fail to restore your home to pre-damage condition, give us a call. We will make it right."

Bio Clean of Utah is available 24 hours a day to deal with all kinds of water-related damage restoration projects. Find out more about Salt Lake City Utah water damage services online, or contact Daryl Olsen of Bio Clean of Utah to make further inquiries.
