Tens of thousands of people in the Bahamas face a daunting task to clean up the destruction left by the hurricane, with an estimated $7billion worth of damage and bodies potentially buried under the rubble.

‘There are no words sufficient to describe this tragedy,’ Bahamian PM Hubert Minnis said. ‘No Bahamian has ever seen anything like this in their lifetime.’

About 2,500 people are still unaccounted for in the Bahamas, the archipelago’s National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said yesterday.

NEMA spokesman Carl Smith told reporters that some of the missing people may eventually be located.

‘At this point, there are approximately 2,500 individuals registered on the Bahamian government register (of missing people),’ Smith said.

At least 50 people died in the hurricane, which slammed into the northern Bahamas as a Category 5 storm, and officials have said they expect the number to rise significantly.
