LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Tents that were used to house over 25,000 festivalgoers staying at Camp EDC at the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas are now sheltering Bahamians who were impacted by Hurricane Dorian.

Insomniac Events last week transported 750 Shiftpod2 Advanced Shelter Systems by truck from Las Vegas to West Palm Beach, Florida, where the shelters were then prepped for delivery via air transport, according to a news release.

Insomniac staff members met the shelters in the Bahamas to assist with set up of all the temporary shelters. 

The weather-resistant, multi-layer, 12.5′ x 12.5′ x 6’10” units will provide setups for families currently in need of shelter and additional food and water resources, Insomniac said.
