Barge set for Bahamas makes unexpected stop in the middle of Elm Street


by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

The sequence of events that shut down Elm Street in Machias for 24 hours this week began much earlier, when Hurricane Dorian laid waste to the Bahamas on September 1.

Regarded as the worst natural disaster in the history of the island nation, Dorian hit with winds topping 185 miles per hour, killing more than 60 and leveling a home built there by Clay Thomas of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
