The United States extends its condolences to all those in The Bahamas who have lost loved ones and we stand with the communities affected by the devastating impact of Hurricane Dorian.

The U.S. government is working in partnership with the Government of The Bahamas, including the National Emergency Management Authority, to deliver emergency supplies to address the immediate needs in the wake of Hurricane Dorian.

The U.S. Mission to The Bahamas, working through multiple agencies of the U.S. government, is providing humanitarian assistance, search and rescue operations, and other disaster response measures as well as assisting U.S. citizens in the affected areas.  At the request of the Bahamian government, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) sent a Disaster Assistance Response Team to coordinate the U.S. response and provide technical support to the National Emergency Management Authority, which is managing the overall relief effort.

This is part of a broader international response effort that includes Caribbean partners, the United Kingdom, and Canada, so that the government of The Bahamas can provide lifesaving and life sustaining care to their people.
