Hurricane Dorian in the USA


This 6 September 2019 CBS TV video from the USA says about itself:

Hurricane Dorian causes flooding in Charleston, South Carolina

More than 200,000 people were without power in South Carolina as Hurricane Dorian lashed the state’s coast, and flooding is a major concern in the Charleston area. CBS News correspondent Jamie Yuccas joined CBSN from Charleston with more.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Hurricane Dorian has travelled along the coastline of South and North Carolina and brought a lot of wind and heavy rain. In the southeastern United States, at least four people have been killed by the natural disaster that previously left the inhabitants of the Bahamas in despair. The death toll there has since risen to thirty.

Historic Charleston suffered from heavy rainfall. Streets became blank and were strewn with fallen trees, branches and disconnected electricity cables. 108 roads in and around the city were closed, of which 26 due to flooding.

At least 250,000 homes and businesses in the southeastern US were without power.

DORIAN DEATH TOLL RISES – TO 30 Carrying possessions in plastic bags, some weary Bahamians whose homes were smashed by Hurricane Dorian waited for a flight out of the disaster zone as an international humanitarian effort to help the Caribbean country gained momentum. The death toll in the Bahamas is now 30 as the storm batters the Carolina coast. [AP]
