Great, thanks Charlie...
Im in touch with Felton and has written to Vince as well.
Have a nice trip down there - look forward to some reports

Josko, do you mean Acklins or Bahamas in general? I'll be there in March, so believe its rather safe. Hurricane season runs june-nov AFAIK right?

Whats Noel's forum name? Im not on first name with that many yet, thou signing every post with my own

-Lars

Ha ha
Omg, what an ignorant I am. I havent heard about that hurricane yet (media currently only covering the upcoming election in Denmark ).
Seriously I thought Noel was a member of this forum who was messing around Bahamas-wide.

Sorry about that Bob... Hope you'll have some nice days down there after all. How long are you staying?

Does anyone know what happens if Bahamas Air has to cancel a sheduled flight out of Nassau to Acklins due to weather?

A friend of mine is going down to Nassau today with a flight tomorrow for Acklins,if Noel screws up the flight do they go the next day or make you wait till Saturday?

Bahamasair will cancell all flights at 12 noon today (10/30) and they are not saying when flights will resume. Ground staff will also depart at this time.

Flights will return when the weather permits, I'm told!!!! I don't see that happening before Saturday; 11/03. More than likely, the aircrafts will be taken out of the country.

Presently, on New Providence the weather is fine except for the winds; 25-30 knots. Business continues as usually, with the exception for those who have their hands in the public purse and have taxing authority.

The winds and liquid sunshine will cause some serious delays and change of plans, however, all will be safe and with the right attitiude, still have a wonderful vacation or work week.

This too will pass!

Not sure Charlie how they will resume. From experience they would be more interested in returning visitors home before and after storms. Too Acklins? Not sure. But this is no storm in the true sense, travel and fishing are interrupted!! Well that a major concern for all on this forum.

Additionally, I spoke with Acklins earlier, only reports coming out is that rains were moderate to heavy during the past evening, however today, it is most pleasant except for winds approx. 20 knots. Persons who can delay for a few days will do very well.

There is uncertainty, as Noel is still on a westly tract and has not begun the expected turn to the north, leaving many questions for all. Here on New Providence (Nassau) its all wait and see! Not much concrete plans can be made now. Last report I saw its over Cuba and will probably be down graded at least for the time being.
