Everything was mashed up by Matthew. Now Dorian has left them in despair.
Four years ago, husband and wife Sherry and Graham Smith had to rebuild from scratch after Hurricane Matthew pounded The Bahamas.
Just over a week ago, they were thrown into an even worse state – including losing more than 20 relatives – due to the rampaging Category 5 Hurricane Dorian.
The Smiths, who live in the community of Heritage, tucked away in Grand Bahama, operated a seafood restaurant called Shebo’s Fresh Conch Salad. The only thing left standing was its foundation.
Only renovated two months ago, it was smashed to pieces by monster winds as the strongest tropical system of the 2019 hurricane season hovered over the island for 48 hours, leaving total devastation behind.
Sherry, 45, sitting with her head in her hands in total disbelief, has been barely able to cope with the tragedy. (AGB)
