Isole Abaco

Le Isole Abaco si trovano nelle Bahamas settentrionali, 180 miglia al largo della costa meridionale della Florida. Comprendono le isole principali di Great Abaco e Little Abaco, insieme a isolotti barriera più piccoli. Le più settentrionali sono Walker's Cay e la sua isola gemella Grand Cay. A sud, le isole abitate successive sono Spanish Cay e Green Turtle Cay, con il suo insediamento di New Plymouth, Great Guana Cay, la privata Scotland Cay, Man-O-War Cay e Elbow Cay, con il suo insediamento di Hope Town. Più a sud sono Tilloo Cay e Lubbers Quarters. Un'altra nota al largo della costa occidentale di Abaco è un tempo Gorda Cay, ora un'isola Disney e una fermata delle navi da crociera e ribattezzata Castaway Cay. Nelle vicinanze si trova anche l'isola di Moore. Sulla Big Island di Abaco si trova Marsh Harbour, centro commerciale delle Abacos e terza città più grande delle Bahamas, oltre all'area turistica di Treasure Cay. Entrambi hanno aeroporti. Alcuni insediamenti significativi sulla terraferma sono Coopers Town e Fox Town a nord e Cherokee e Sandy Point a sud. Amministrativamente, le isole Abaco costituiscono sette dei 31 distretti del governo locale delle Bahamas: Grand Cay, North Abaco, Green Turtle Cay, Central Abaco, South Abaco, Moore's Island e Hope Town.

Geografia

Le isole Abaco sono costituite da calcare con una certa elevazione e sono protette sul lato dell'oceano dalla terza barriera corallina più grande del mondo. Gli isolotti sono principalmente verdi con mangrovie e spiagge di sabbia bianca. La maggior parte delle isole è disabitata. Le Isole Abaco e i loro isolotti sono chiamate Isole Esterne, Isole Familiari e Isole Amiche.

Storia

Le isole Abaco furono inizialmente abitate dai Lucayans. I primi coloni europei delle isole erano lealisti in fuga dalla Rivoluzione americana che arrivarono nel 1783, come fu anche il caso di Cat Island. Questi originari coloni lealisti guadagnavano una vita modesta recuperando relitti, costruendo piccole barche di legno e coltivando di base.

Epoche precolombiane e spagnole

I Lucayani furono i primi ad abitare le Isole Abaco. Erano un ramo dei Taínos che all'epoca abitava la maggior parte delle isole dei Caraibi. I Lucaiani furono i primi abitanti delle Americhe incontrati da Cristoforo Colombo. Gli spagnoli iniziarono a sequestrare i Lucaiani come schiavi entro pochi anni dall'arrivo di Colombo, e furono tutti rimossi dalle Bahamas nel 1520. Dopo lo sterminio dei Lucaiani, non c'erano insediamenti permanenti noti alle Bahamas per circa 130 anni. rivendicare le Bahamas dopo che Colombo scoprì le isole, ma mostrò scarso interesse per loro. L'esploratore italiano Amerigo Vespucci trascorse quattro mesi esplorando le Bahamas nel 1499–1500. La prima mappa del Nuovo Mondo di Juan de la Cosa, stampata nel 1500, mostra le Isole Abaco con il nome Habacoa. La mappa nella prima edizione del "De Orbe Novo" di Peter Martyr nel 1511 mostra le isole Bahamas ma non le nomina. L'esploratore spagnolo Juan Ponce de León sbarcò ad Abaco nel 1513. La mappa di Torino del 1523 mostra chiaramente Abaco, ora Iucayonique. La mappa di Torino è rimasta la mappa più accurata dell'area fino alla produzione delle prime mappe inglesi delle Bahamas. Sia la mappa di John White del 1590 che quella di Thomas Hood del 1592 mostrano le isole, così come una mappa prodotta nel 1630 dall'olandese de Laet. A quel tempo, l'impero spagnolo nei Caraibi era concentrato sull'Avana. La Spagna considerava le Bahamas ormai spopolate come non redditizie e infide da navigare; - nel 1593, una flotta spagnola di 17 navi naufragò al largo dell'Abaco. Inoltre, pirati e predoni inglesi e francesi avevano iniziato a depredare le navi spagnole a nord di Cuba. Un'ordinanza spagnola del 1561 vietava a qualsiasi nave mercantile di entrare alle Bahamas senza scorta. La proprietà delle Bahamas passò avanti e indietro tra Spagna e Gran Bretagna per 150 anni. Un trattato è stato stabilito nel 1783 dalla Gran Bretagna. La Gran Bretagna cedette la Florida orientale alla Spagna, ricevendo in cambio le Bahamas.

Great Abaco Island, Bahamas - Port Report

Hurricane Dorian made landfall nearly two years ago and the scars are still visible across the Abacos: Endless fields of trees sheared in half and missing their tops. Twisted and mangled steal. Boats nowhere near the ocean. Telephone poles snapped like twigs. Homes without roofs or walls or empty lots where homes once stood.

It’s almost two years later and there’s still so much recovery left for the Abacos.

Download our app for iOS or Androidto get the latest forecasts on the hurricane season— and sign up for alerts.

Wendell Grant with the Bahamas’ Disaster Reconstruction Authority wants people to know that there is still a lot of work to do and that donations are still needed so that the recovery can continue.

"We are still very much in the reconstruction phase and trying to bring back Abaco to its original glory," Grant said.

Dorian was the biggest storm to ever hit the Bahamas, but the island was dealt another blow just as the recovery began -- COVID-19.

Once the pandemic began, the groups that were helping rebuild left the islands and recovery came to a halt. 

"All the NGOs that were here, all the aid groups that were here had to leave," said Ken Hutton of the Abaco Chamber of Commerce. "So a lot of that help and reconstruction and rebuilding stopped dead in the water."

Ahead of the 2021 season, NBC 6 Meteorologist Steve MacLaughlin is in Great Abaco Island, almost two years after Hurricane Dorian made landfall.

But there’s plenty of encouraging news. While images of destruction are everywhere, images of construction bring hope. 

"Absolutely the Abaco and Grand Bahama will get back to normal," Grant said. "What's still needed is more support, more reconstruction and more assistance. The number one thing people can do is to donate funds to the DRA and the cause that we have."
