Cartwright says rebuild will take “decades” in native Bahamas

Dorian finally weakened and headed out to sea on Sunday night. At least 44 people are dead after Dorian made landfall as a major hurricane in the Bahamas.

Mizzou chancellor Alexander Cartwright is from there, and has been in contacted with others about how to respond.

“It’s really a difficult situation for a lot of people. Water is needed. Lots of needs for the people that are in Abaco and Grand Bahama,” Cartwright said on the Tiger Radio Network from Learfield IMG College.

Cartwright says his brother’s niece died in the storm. Of the handful of Mizzou students from the Bahamas, a couple of their families lost their homes.

“The rebuilding that’s going to need to occur is not just a matter of a year, it’s decades.”
