The Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) yesterday deployed three rapid damage and needs assessment teams to The Bahamas to determine the extent of damage suffered during the passage of Hurricane Joaquin over the weekend.

The CDEMA-led teams will provide assistance to the disaster agencies in the Bahamas in the assessment of damage to critical facilities, infrastructure and housing, water, sanitation and health, telecommunications and coastal zones, as well as provide general disaster response and relief support.
