Hurricane Dorian

Hurricane Dorian was the most powerful storm to hit the Bahamas in recorded history, causing catastrophic damage to Abaco and Grand Bahama islands. Pounding winds up to 185 mph and torrential rains damaged thousands of homes, businesses and hospitals, flooded the airport, made roads impassable and left the area devastated. One resident who helps run a local hurricane relief group said, “It’s not rebuilding something that was there; we have to start again.” Dorian has since moved up the Florida central coast, leaving more than 7,000 without power with wind gusts of up to 76 mph. Along the east coast from Florida to North Carolina, storm watches and warnings are in effect according to the National Hurricane Center.
