‘Cruise ships May provide shelter to victims of Hurricane Dorian’: Donald Trump

“The @USCG, @fema, and most of the other people, together with other nations which have been assisting, have been requested to move men and women in the badly hit segments of the Bahamas to other parts of the Bahamas which weren’t struck — which are in good shape,” the president wrote on Twitter, speaking to the US Coast Guard and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. “Any cruise boat companies keen to act as a static home, etc., I’m sure will be appreciated!”

However, FEMA isn’t playing a direct part in the help offered from the US to the Bahamas following the storm.

“As we react to #Dorian’s consequences in America, our spouses in @USAID @theOFDA are encouraging the Bahamas with their storm response & recovery,” the bureau stated on Twitter, speaking to the US Agency for International Development and the Office of US Foreign Disaster Assistance. “They’re working closely with @nemabahamas to organize aid on behalf of the total US government.”

“In the aftermath of Dorian, we are mobilizing our fleet to assist those who want it,” Royal Caribbean tweeted Wednesday.

“We’re loading all types of products to our boats — generators, water, cleaning supplies, towels and much more — for immediate shipping to the Bahamas,” the firm said in a statement.

Norwegian tweeted before this week the lining Norwegian Breakaway was drifting for the islands together with supplies.

The Coast Guard said in an announcement on Friday that its aircraft and ships had saved 205 individuals since Dorian struck the Bahamas.
