Bahamas says 2,500 missing after Hurricane Dorian

Maddie’s First Warning Forecast Noticeably cooler showers and windy Friday

Abaco and Grand Bahama were severely destructed by Hurricane Dorian, and people from these islands are still quickly evacuating.

That is up from the last-reported figure of 45, Carl Smith, a spokesman for the islands' National Emergency Management Agency, told reporters.

The total may fall as it is cross-checked.

Three days into hurricane Dorian's attack on the Bahamas, former Windsor resident Ryan Cartwright set out in a boat to rescue people.

Matt Hicks, an Apollo native who has lived in the Bahamas for more than four years, said he agrees with the country's Ministry of Tourism that, well, tourism is among the best ways to help.

Burnaby firefighters Ryan Berry and Scott Murchison pose with a dog their team rescued on Great Abaco Island in the Bahamas.

"All the showers won't be heavy; there'll be times we have heavy and there'll be times when it won't be so heavy, but there can be localised flooding and it's possible that they can hamper restoration efforts for a short time", he said yesterday.

US States initiate anti-trust probe against Google
Google's share of the market, however, has dropped in recent years as companies like Amazon attract more spending. The probes could result in algorithm changes for Facebook and Google to make it friendlier for rivals to compete.

"Someone's going to have to come out with something very quickly, a 30-second spot. that says welcome to the Bahamas, we're still open, you can still get flights out of Miami, you can still enjoy yourself", he says. The category 5 storm, one of the most powerful to hit the Caribbean on record, brought gusts of more than 200mph and a storm surge of close to 24ft.

The cruise line was among the first to respond to the devastation caused to the region after the powerful Hurricane Dorian ripped through as a category 5 with maximum sustained winds of 185 miles per hour.

While power has been restored to much of Grand Bahama, the electrical grid around Abaco's largest city was destroyed, according to the Associated Press.

"It was frightful to see it (the storm) and not hear from my son", said Ryan's mom Janice Cartwright, who lives in Windsor.

He said the communication from the Bahamas needs to strike a balance: acknowledge the disaster, address the recovery and make sure the needs of the local community are being met. The storm's punishing winds and muddy brown floodwaters devastated thousands of homes, crippled hospitals and trapped people in attics.

The government estimates that as many as 10,000 people from the Abaco Islands alone will need food, water, and temporary housing while the northern region is cleared of debris.
