THE BAHAMAS – HURRICANE DORIAN RELIEF

Hurricane Dorian, the second strongest Atlantic storm on record and the strongest to ever strike The Bahamas, made landfall as a category 5 storm on the northern Bahamian island of Abaco midday on September 1 and on Grand Bahama Island September 2. It carried maximum sustained winds of 180 mph and a possible storm surge of 23 feet above normal tide levels. The storm has caused significant damage to infrastructure, knocked out electricity, and left many people displaced.
