discount cialis purchase times;”>On Saturday 3rd October after four days of pounding by wind, ampoule rain and the sea from Hurricane Jaoquim, together with a spring tide because of a full moon, the Southern Bahamas was subjected to a review of the damage.  It is considerable.  It includes roofs gone, significant flooding and well devastation.  There was also an 800 foot ship lost at sea which up to the upload time they have not been able to find. The  U S Coastguard were out in the weather conditions rescuing people from the wind and rain.  Some 16 people were saved as a result of the work of the US Coastguard.   Here were some of the early pictures from San Salvador and Long  Island.  Social media played an important role in keeping people in touch but the telecommunications systems failed us again during the storm.  The country again asked the question that despite all the assurances, the country seemed woefully unprepared for what ensued.
