Displacement in paradise: Hurricane Dorian slams the Bahamas

Source(s):  Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC)

Hurricane Dorian, the strongest hurricane on record to hit the Bahamas, made landfall on Elbow Cay, east of Grand Abaco, on 1 September 2019. For three days, the category 5 storm battered Abaco and Grand Bahama, causing catastrophic damage and destroying houses that could not withstand such intensities.

This study is based on a qualitative methodology, with 41 semi-structured interviews as well as participant observation. The report focuses on displacement geographically and by population groups while examining the resulting obstacles to durable solutions on the hurricane-prone islands.
