It took little time for South Florida to respond to the horror that has torn Grand Bahama Island to pieces.
Three cruise ships will deliver supplies and offer safe passage off of the island to the thousands of Bahamians rendered refugees by the most devastating hurricane ever recorded in the Bahamas.
Bahamas Cruise Lines brought the first evacuees to Florida last night.
It is free of charge if the evacuee has proper documentation and the effort will continue indefinitely.
The Grand Celebration which shuttled victims off of St. Thomas after Hurricane Irma is under way as well as the Royal Caribbean and Norwegian cruise ships.
The cruise lines are also dropping off sheets ,towels, cleaning supplies and generators.
More than 50,000 people live on Grand Bahama. Hundreds of people are still missing and many thousands have lost their homes.
