Body bags and additional morticians and refrigerated coolers to properly store bodies are being transported to Abaco and other affected areas as the death toll continues to soar, Bahamas’ Health Minister Dr. Duane Sands said Thursday during a radio interview on Guardian Radio 96.9 FM. Numbers could drastically change this afternoon, he said.

“The public need to prepare for unimaginable information about the death toll and the human suffering.”

“Make no bones about it, the numbers will be far higher than 23,” he said. “It is going to be significantly higher than that. And it’s just a matter of retrieving those bodies, making sure we understand how they died. It seems like we are splitting hairs, but not everyone who died, died in the storm.”

“It’s going to be huge,” he said.

“We have four morticians in Abaco embalming because we have run out of coolers.”
