Hurricane Dorian spent a record amount of time over the Bahama Islands and the damage you will see make it look as if someone got in their tractor and leveled the land.
Hurricane Dorian pummeled the Bahamas leaving at least five dead and an estimated 13,000 homes destroyed. After more than 36 hours of pounding the group of islands, the storm still hovered Tuesday as it made a slow northwest turn towards the United States coastline.
“We are in the midst of a historic tragedy,” Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said in a Tweet on Monday. As soon as possible, he said, the government will begin to provide aid and assistance. [USA Today]
Anyone is welcome to donate to #BAHAMASTRONG. Organizers are looking for:

- First aid supplies
- Mosquito spray
- Canned foods
- Can openers
- Small generators
How do we organize a response in Bahamas? Here’s our current map we are working from…. @WCKitchen has kitchens ready to go and shelters mapped out. If kitchens are destroyed, we build one and cook in big paella pans! https://t.co/yNzrfrKIaS pic.twitter.com/fa4sBN8qMe
