The Bahamas minister for agriculture shared a video showing flood waters creeping into his home in Grand Bahama.
You can hear Michael Pintard explaining the situation in the video:
“That’s water hitting my front window which is extremely high. Of course I’m already completely flooded out. That’s my kitchen window that water is hitting and that has to be a minimum of about 20 feet above the ground. This is water by my back door that came from the canal that height has to be 20 to 25 feet above sea level. This is what I’m facing at the moment. I have neighbors who are in a far worse position than me and my family. That’s my bedroom water hitting there," Pintard says.
