Disney Says Employees Are Safe on Bahamas’ Castaway Cay Amid Dorian

Disney Says Employees Are Safe on Bahamas’ Castaway Cay Amid Dorian”

Family members of Disney staff have complained as the company has left employees on their privately owned island in the Bahamas as Hurricane Dorian devastates the area.

Castaway Cay, the private island, which is owned by Disney and acts as a port for their cruises, is closed for guests while employees have taken shelter there and are stocked with water and food, according to a spokesperson for the multibillion dollar company.

'Some of our Crew remained on the island and their care and safety is our highest priority.

The company said in a statement that Castaway Cay is south of "the more significant weather and is now experiencing tropical-storm-force winds, which based on the current forecast, are expected for the next several hours before gradually diminishing".

Disney said the employees remained on Castaway Cay as the hurricane swept through Great Abaco and later made landfall in Grand Bahama.

"The Government and people of St. Kitts and Nevis have the people of the Bahamas firmly in our thoughts and prayers during their time of greatest need, and we stand in solidarity with them as they try to cope with loss of life and property in the aftermath", the Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis said, adding: "We send our love to the people of the Bahamas, as well as the assurance that we will do whatever we can to support them and help them rebuild and recover".

"My sister is stuck in the middle of a Cat 5 hurricane".

'They were stuck and had faith in being evacuated. "Left them behind! Why??"

Hurricane Dorian has already caused extensive damage after it hit the islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama.

Sune Bulow, Head of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies' Emergency Operation Centre in Geneva, said that Hurricane Dorian has had a "catastrophic impact" on the islands.

In another tweet the concerned sibling said:"They shouldn't be in that situation".

"I understand your concern, as they are our co-workers". [Disney Cruise Lines] is in regular contact with island leadership and all are safe.

According to the MailOnline, the storm - with winds of 185mph - is expected to move towards Florida later today (Monday). A DCL representative stated that it was created to sustain up to Category 4 conditions, but given that Hurricane Dorian is on pace to outrank even Category 5 speeds, one has to wonder.

They will make sure to connect all the dots and get everything in order for your next Disney Cruise Line, Walt Disney World, Disneyland, or any Disney Destination vacation while saving you time, stress, and money.

It's not clear how many employees are sheltered on the cay.

This morning the hurricane was crawling westward at just 1mph, giving no respite to the Bahamas as it continues to lash the islands with destructive winds. Category 5 officially starts at 157 miles per hour or greater wind speeds.
