Category 5 Hurricane Dorian battered the Bahamas with 185-mph winds during September 1-2. The most affected islands are Great Abaco, Grand Bahamas, and New Providence.

The response to Hurricane Dorian’s impact is being led by the Government of the Bahamas, through the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and in coordination with the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA). International organizations and agencies are complementing those efforts. NEMA has established its Emergency Support Functions (ESF) humanitarian coordination structure, composed of 15 ESFs with their own lead ministries or departments to align response sectors between relevant stakeholders. The regional and international humanitarian community has designated focal points for each of the relevant Emergency Support Functions to strengthen support and coordination efforts. ESF-6 deals with Mass Care and Shelter.
