As the Bahamas continue to survey the damage from Dorian’s pummeling over the weekend, the United States is bracing for her wrath. If there’s good news for Americans, it’s that forecasters seem pretty positive that Dorian won’t make landfall.
Still, there’s plenty of rain on tap for everyone from Florida on up to Virginia – and in some areas, mandatory evacuations. Given what’s been confirmed by Bahamian officials, there is serious cause for concern.
At last check, authorities have tallied five dead and Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Minnis calls the destruction "unprecedented and extensive," and says that the many homes and businesses are completely destroyed with extraordinary an amount remaining. This as the islands are still being lashed with outer bands and the now-category three hurricane continues its slow march north.
