Abaco Forum Newsgroup

Latest News From The Abaconian and Rolling Harbour Abaco

Is this an Abaco forum / newsgroup in the conventional sense? Not quite. We tried providing a classic forum at one point, then experimented with Twitter, but had little success. Running an interactive forum requires time, effort, and most of all, moderators -- something we did not have the resources for. If you are looking for a forum / message board dedicated to the Abacos, we suggest heading over to Abaco's Community Message Board or Abaco Forum.

Beyond a classic forum, we provide a stream of some of the news outlets we watch when it comes to Abaco. Our first choice is an Abaco Facebook Page hosted by the Abaconian which has been Abaco's newspaper of record since 1993.

Following the Abaconian's Facebook page is the news feed for Rolling Harbour Abaco hosted by The Delphi Club. This is an informative and enjoyable blog that covers the birds and other wildlife on Abaco Island.

QUEEN TRIGGERFISH AND GOOD RIDDANCE TO MARIA

QUEEN TRIGGERFISH AND GOOD RIDDANCE TO MARIA I can think of no sensible connection between the colourful yet undoubtedly strange and grumpy-looking looking queen triggerfish Balistes vetula, and a hurricane. However, Hurricanes Irma and Maria have been rightly dominating the news and everyone’s thoughts for nearly 3 weeks now. And most of the recent posts from Rolling […]

HURRICANE MARIA: TRACKING UPDATE for SEP 20th (Abaco, Bahamas)

HURRICANE MARIA: TRACKING UPDATE SEP 20th Abaco, Bahamas Hurricane Maria is currently passing over Puerto Rico as a Cat 4 on the Saffir-Simpson Scale. The big question for those to the north-west in general and (for this blog) Abaco in particular is, has the storm’s swerve to the east continued? And it’s now clear that […]

AFTER THE STORM: ALL THINGS BRIGHT & BEAUTIFUL

AFTER THE STORM: ALL THINGS BRIGHT & BEAUTIFUL For tens of thousands of people, the past 2 weeks have been dominated by one cruelly aggressive female: Irma.

HURRICANE IRMA AFTERMATH: ABACO’S SIDESWIPE(S)

HURRICANE IRMA AFTERMATH: ABACO’S SIDESWIPE(S) Hurricane Irma barrels on northwards as Florida begins to count the cost.  Abaco has had its turn to experience the awesome power of this brute of a storm. Or make that turns (plural) because such a massive storm 400 miles across, spiralling longs strands of filthy weather outwards with centrifugal […]

HURRICANE IRMA UPDATE (2): ABACO, BAHAMAS 9/9 It’s Saturday afternoon.

HURRICANE IRMA UPDATE & ISS VIEWS: ABACO, BAHAMAS

HURRICANE IRMA UPDATE: ABACO, BAHAMAS It’s Friday afternoon. Irma is spinning her destructive progress through the Bahamas towards… well, right at the moment it seems to be Andros and then towards the Florida coast and northwards up the panhandle. Abaco is not currently shown in the direct firing line – but there’s no doubt that […]
