Bahamas Hurricane Postage Stamps

The Bahamas Postal Service has issued a collection of four stamps, highlighting the importance of hurricane preparedness.

One of the stamps displays the logo of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA). The remaining three depict palm trees swaying in high winds; a hurricane map tracking the storm across The Bahamas; and a reconnaissance aircraft flying through a storm to measure its intensity.

The National Emergency Management Agency is the coordinating agency, which activates the Emergency Operations Centre when a disaster hits the country.
