Hurricane Dorian lashes US coast leaving Ravaged Bahamas in its Aftermath

Hurricane Dorian smashed to the Bahamas earlier this week and left a humanitarian tragedy in its aftermath.

Tens of thousands of inhabitants were left homeless and 30 dead because the islands confronted with the worst storm in their background.

Satellite images revealing Grand Bahama before and after the storm shows how the flood has changed the island.

Dorian that has weakened to a Category 1 storm has moved to US shore bringing 90 miles-per-hour winds and torrential rain.

In low-lying areas of the historic town, floodwaters rose to a foot (30 cm) or longer. In North Carolina, residents were planning for Dorian.

“We’re prioritising our forecasts since we’re on the brink of hurricane winds,” said Chief Charles Drew, Southport Fire Department.

“When they”re life-threatening we”re responding but we’re careful with our crews since we don’t wanna get anyone hurt.”

It had maximum sustained winds of 105 mph and crawled northeast much quicker than the average jogger.

Life-threatening storm strikes and damaging winds remain a danger to much of the shore of South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia, the National Weather Service said.
