As reports come in from the Southeastern Bahamas it’s clear that the country has taken yet another economic blow.
The Morton Salt Factory in Inagua has yet again suffered extensive damage from a major hurricane. Still recovering from Hurricane Joaquin which hit in 2015 initial estimates put the damage from Hurricane Irma in the millions.
According to a report on social media "We have millions in dollars damage to Morton Salt. All of the Catwalks from Morton Salt Terminal are gone , the Maintenance Shop is severely damaged , all of our salt production stackers was[sic] totally destroyed, seventy percent of the homes in Inagua have roof damage (mainly missing shingles) but absolutely no lost[sic] of life . We have to rebuild now. This is the 4th hurricane to hit us in 9 years."
