ISLAND TIME - A Tribute to the Bahamas
AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :
In stunning drone video, top AirVūz content creator msember provides sweeping views of the Bahamas, the tropical paradise which was tragically hit by Hurricane Dorian in September, 2019. The storm, one of the most powerful Atlantic storms ever recorded, caused immense damage throughout the northern parts of the Bahamas. This moving video tribute reminds us all of the pristine beauty of this coral-based archipelago, prior to its storm devastation. This video was a DVOW finalist in September, 2019.
After taking multiple trips to the Bahamas this summer and filming, the islands were devastated by hurricane Dorian. Many places in this film are no longer there, or will never be the same. The relief efforts are currently ongoing and the locals are struggling to survive. We consider the Bahamas our second home and a place that has given us some of the best moments of our life. It is filled with stunning beaches, crystal clear waters, secret blue holes, abundance marine life, epic sandbars, and some of the nicest people in the world. It will be a long road to recovery, and we are doing everything in our power to help out the people of this amazing island chain. There are hundreds of organizations that are providing relief to the islands as we speak. A lot of the goods and supplies are going to the populated areas that were hit hard. My friends and i are trying to focus on direct help and relief to some of the smaller communities that will not be getting help or as much help any time soon. We hope that someday, it will be close to what it was.
