2.500 fehlen noch auf den vom Hurrikan zerstörten Bahamas

By Mike Tyler

September 12, 2019 - Geschätzte 2.500 Menschen werden noch auf den Bahamas nach Durchzug von Hurrikan Dorian vermisst, berichtet die National Emergency Management Agentur (NEMA).

Carl Smith, a spokesman for NEMA, said he expected the list to shrink as the names are checked.

More than a week after Dorian smashed thousands of homes on the country's Grand Bahama and Abaco islands, the death toll stood at 50 and was expected to rise, with search-and-rescue crews still making their way through the ruins.

While power has returned to much of Grand Bahama, Smith said the electrical infrastructure around Marsh Harbour, Abaco's largest city, was destroyed.
