Hurricane Dorian, Bahamas death toll at 20

This 4 September 2019 video, about Hurricane Dorian, says about itself:

The death toll in Abaco, in the Bahamas, has risen to 7 according to Prime Minister @minnis_dr who provided an update late Tuesday.

DORIAN WREAKS ‘APOCALYPTIC’ DEVASTATION Relief officials reported scenes of utter ruin in parts of the Bahamas and rushed to deal with an unfolding humanitarian crisis in the wake of Hurricane Dorian, the most powerful storm on record ever to hit the islands. At least seven deaths were reported, with the full scope of the disaster still unknown. [AP]

HURRICANE DORIAN STRENGTHENS The devastation wrought by Dorian in the Bahamas came into focus as the passing of the strongest hurricane on record revealed a muddy, debris-strewn landscape of smashed and flooded-out homes on Abaco and Grand Bahama islands. The official death toll jumped to 20, and looks likely to climb. Now a Category 3, Dorian is pushing its way up the U.S. Southeastern coast. [AP]

TRUMP’S HURRICANE MAP FIASCO It’s well known that Trump doesn’t like to admit he’s wrong, but somebody may have gone to extreme lengths to protect his ego. During a hurricane briefing, the president showed a Sharpie-altered weather map suggesting Dorian was previously on track to hit Alabama, which it wasn’t. [HuffPost]
