Continued Driving Safety in The Bahamas & Restored U.S. Embassy Nassau Communications

The Embassy advises U.S. citizens in New Providence to avoid traveling after dark due to downed power lines and pedestrians using streets.  Avoid routes around crowded gas stations unless necessary due to congestion and reports of occasional tensions due to sometimes long lines.
