Aerial Photos Show the Devastating Damage Hurricane Dorian Wreaked in the Bahamas

Blind man in Bahamas braved Hurricane Dorian floodwaters with disabled adult son on his shoulders: report

Stores and restaurants were boarded up with wood and corrugated metal in Charleston's historic downtown, and about 830,000 people were under mandatory evacuation orders on the SC coast.

"Hurricane Dorian's change in direction has shifted the risk spotlight toward a broader residential real estate path, encompassing $1.7 trillion this week, up from a projected $1.5 trillion when it was expected to make landfall along the Florida coast", George Ratiu, a senior economist for realtor.com, said in a statement to HousingWire.

Many buildings had walls or roofs partly ripped off.

In this handout aerial photo provided by the Head Knowles Foundation, damage is seen from Hurricane Dorian on Abaco Island on September 3, 2019 in the Bahamas.

"The Walt Disney Company stands with the people of The Bahamas affected by Hurricane Dorian", CEO Bob Iger said in a press release.

Duke Energy said Dorian could cause more than 700,000 power outages in eastern regions of North Carolina and SC, and Georgia Power said about 2,800 homes and businesses were already without electricity.

Volunteers rescue several families that arrived on small boats, from the rising waters of Hurricane Dorian. "The ocean was something no one could prepare for", she said.

As many as 13,000 homes in the Bahamas may have been destroyed or severely damaged, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies said, in the strongest storm to hit the Bahamas. "We know from what we're seeing there's a lot more need, which means we need to ramp up".

In comparison to our neighbors in the Bahamas though, Scaggs says he and his employees got off easy, "Just feeling kind of bad for the others around the Bahamas but fortunate here for sure".

"We certainly got lucky in Florida, and now if we could get lucky in Georgia, in North Carolina, in South Carolina", President Donald Trump told reporters in the Oval Office.

The storm has been downgraded from a Category 5 to a Category 2 - but still had dangerously high winds and threatened to swamp low-lying regions from Georgia to southeastern Virginia on its trek northward.

The ground crunched under Greg Alem's feet on Wednesday as he walked over the ruins of his home, laid waste by Hurricane Dorian.

A Florida resident has discovered a large package of cocaine washed up on a beach as the killer Hurricane Dorian travels the state's eastern coast.

"Hurricane Dorian has its sights set on North Carolina", Gov. Roy Cooper said.
