Bahamian Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said that the damage to homes, businesses and other buildings is "unprecedented and extensive," while the National Emergency Management Agency has issued an "urgent plea" to owners of equipment such as jet skis, small boats and flatbed trailers to assemble at the Grand Bahama shopping mall to assist with the rescue. 

The US Coast Guard along with the British Royal Navy have also been sent to the region. 

There are “still many outstanding rescue missions,” on the island of Grand Bahama, Finance Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Kevin Peter Turnquest said, in reply to written questions. “It’s not looking good as we expect catastrophic damage.” -Bloomberg
