We’ve never been to the Ragged Islands before, so we really can’t offer a Before/After comparison, but walking through Duncan Town, the only settlement in the Ragged Islands, your heart aches for those that lived and raised their families here. Before Irma there were around 200 people living in the Ragged Islands, almost all of them in Duncan Town, which is located on the island of Ragged Cay. Their was a city hall, a police station, a school, a church, a few modest homes, and a couple of businesses. The town was nearly leveled. The school is gone, the city hall and police station are unsafe. The people are mostly gone. 40 brave souls are trying to recover their lives. Bahamians are resilient people, so I’m confident the town will come back in some form, but lives were destroyed in a matter of hours last summer by Hurricane Irma and her 200 MPH winds.
