ATLANTA — Delta Air Lines delivered 4,700 pounds of supplies to the Hurricane Dorian-stricken Bahamas on Sunday. Flight 9994 departed Ft. Lauderdale, Fllrida, Sunday morning, landing at 10:59 a.m. at the Marsh Harbour Airport. Once supplies were unloaded, the flight departed for Nassau with 72 evacuees. Supplies included non-perishable food, water, diapers, formula, underwear and socks for survivors.
In coordination with the U.S. Marine Corps, Bahamian Police and British Marines on the ground in Marsh Harbour, supplies were unloaded by Delta employees assigned to assist the mission. Employees then helped load passengers already identified by authorities before departing for Nassau, Bahamas.
