New technology used to conduct building damage assessments after hurricane in Bahamas

New technology is being used to conduct building damage assessments across the islands of The Bahamas that were affected by Hurricane Dorian.
 
The technology has been used by the National Emergency Management Agency and the Bahamas Ministry of Public Works with the support of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
 
The UNDP said to date, approximately 3,000 houses in Grand Bahama and Abaco have been assessed using the methodology. 
 
It said this valuable data will, among other things, assist The Bahamas government in cost estimations of damages and planning a "build back better" strategy.
