BPL is still on island working on getting people hooked up to temporary power. Many local residents are still not hooked up to it. Many await the inspection or hookup and are tirelessly awaiting.
The power is only temporary and cannot sustain the entire island. We are awaiting underwater sea cables to come in so BPL can fix all underwater cables to the cays to give permanent power back to everyone.
Not an easy process to wait for in July temperatures. The people are tired and have little patience left, but are doing our best to keep spirits high and concentrate on community efforts, Rebuilding and recovery.
Tomorrow we celebrate July 10th, Independence Day and we hope to take a mental break and celebrate how far we have come.
We appreciate the BPL linesmen and all their hard work for Abaco. Thank you!
