    Bimini bound? Think again!

    The main power station on Bimini has burned up. The generator exploded and started the fire. News reports say the supply of fuel, Estimated at 200,000 gallons, is burning.
    The island is completely without power. Of course it's early but estimates say it could be up to a year before the station can be rebuilt on brought online!

    Bimini is the closest of the Bahamian islands to Florida (80 mi.) and the main port of entry for most boat traffic. This is really bad for the island and it's residents.

    Hope nobody was injured firstly, and secondly I hope the international community chips in to help. Notre Dame got about a squillion pledges in the first 24 hours after all...
