Several businesses and groups in Southwest Florida are collecting supplies to help hurricane victims in the Bahamas.
But it turns out, the U.S. Coast Guard said it’s going to be tough to deliver your donations.
Right now, it’s unsafe to get supplies into the areas hit hardest by Dorian.
The category 5 storm spared no mercy for those living in the Bahamas.
The U.S. Coast Guard said anyone planning to take a boat with donations into the northern part of the Bahamas is not allowed until further notice.
It’s too risky because of the debris in the water, sunken vessels and destroyed docks and marinas.
There’s also a rick of chemical spills near some ports.
Right now, the Bahamas government is assessing the northern ports and harbors to determine if they are safe to enter.
