Cat 5 hurricane -- How are the Bahamas doing?

It is too early for damage assessments. BTC, local Bahama telecommunications company, is reporting widespread power outages, and intermittent mobile and wireline telephone service. The Abaco Islands in northern Bahamas seem to be taking the worst of it.

Network measurements sites are reporting less than 6% reachability in Hope Town, Bahamas. Other parts of Bahamas have less than 50% reachability.

Folks asking for updates on Bahamas. The simple answer is I'm not hearing any information out of the Bahamas, which is concerning in itself.

My big secret how I do network outage reports is people send me the information. Usually, I get lots of random emails from network people about problems all over the U.S. and other places in the world. But Bahamas has gone very quiet.

Things are bad in some places, fine in others. I can provide a more thorough update this evening.

Bahamas are essentially flattened as per recent reports. Or in other words .... BAAAAAAD

Any further details?
