Each year along the hurricane corridor, it happens like clockwork. Massive storm systems spawn and are born off the coast of Africa, in the warm Atlantic Ocean currents. They march along the Ocean, leaving a path of destruction in their wake. We know they are brewing and we know they are coming. And each year, the chatter starts in the community about the storm details. Here on Long Island in the Bahamas, Hurricane Joaquin, a major storm system that demolished the island in 2015, was used as a comparison to the storm that came though this week, Hurricane Irma. Joaquin was a storm that everyone on Long Island, Bahamas was touched by, with some stories holding very tragic details.
