Send in a Carnival or Norwegian cruise ship which can evacuate thousands at a time. They make billions off The Bahamas every year.

Yeah, and pets are so vulnerable. Saving my cat would be a priority. I love my kitty.

People, leave them alone and stop the criticism. They all made it out safely. Now is not the time to criticize. Plus, Tim Aylen went BACK out and helped rescue his neighbors.

Royal Caribbean; Carnival; Norwegian cruises... why didn't you guys stay to evacuate as many as possible?... that should become a NATO order to have those ships dock & evacuate.

I feel bad for them.

This is heartbreaking. I heard there was a lady who was taking in abandoned dogs caught in the hurricane. Heard she had taken in close to 100 dogs...hope to God there are more people able to do the same kindness for those dogs from your neighborhood. Sending positive energy, comfort and hoping for a positive outcome.
