No matter where you live, you have probably heard of the devastating Hurricane Dorian that is going through the Bahamas and into the southeastern part of the United States. It has left a terrible impact on the island of the Bahamas. Currently the death toll is at 43, which is expected to rise drastically and there is more than 70,000 left homeless due to the hurricane. With so many people lost and in need of help, lucky there have been good Samaritans on PWC’s who have helped rescue many people.
In a CNN video, they said a group of twelve PWC riders helped rescue 100 people from flood waters. PWC’s are the perfect piece of machinery to use after an area has been hit with a hurricane and has caused major flooding. They can travel far into narrow places and they do not have a propeller like a boat that could run into debris. These rescue missions are so crucial because there are people all over that may be landlocked or trapped. If nobody goes out and checks all of the effected areas, survivors could be trapped forever.
Riding in these flood conditions is not glamorous at all. Due to all of the debris in the water, the chances for diseases and getting hurt rise. Many of the survivors are living without clean water, running out of food and trying to battle off any diseases. If you are able to help in any way possible, the Bahamas need your help. There are multiple GoFundMe’s online and places to donate supplies. Even if it is donating a case of water or canned food, anything will make a huge difference.
