HURRICANE DORIAN DEVASTATES THE BAHAMAS 

WIND SPEED 180MPH

STORM SURGE 20FT

RAINFALL 25″

Hurricane Dorian continued its unrelenting assault on the Grand Bahama and Abaco Islands on Monday, causing “extreme destruction” as storm surges rose 12 to 18 feet above normal tide levels and at least five people were confirmed dead.

Prime Minister Hubert Minnis of the Bahamas said the Royal Bahamas police force confirmed the deaths late Monday. Details about how the people died were not immediately available.

“We are in the midst of a historic tragedy,” Mr. Minnis said at an evening news conference. He added: “Our focus is search, rescue, and recovery. I ask for your prayers for those in affected areas and for our first responders.”

Mr. Minnis said the videos of vast destruction in the country were heartbreaking. “Many homes, businesses, and other buildings have been completed or partially destroyed,” he said. “Downtown Grand Bahama is under three feet of water, including the ground floor of its hospital and the prime minister’s office,” Mr. Minnis added.

Because of the storm’s stubborn refusal to move past the Bahamas, officials with the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency, a relief group based in Barbados, may not be able to visit the islands until Wednesday afternoon.
