September 12, 2019 - Milhares de pessoas a precisar de ajuda após o furacão Dorian assolar
duas ilhas no norte das Bahamas. A tempestade de categoria 5 foi a mais violenta dos registos a atingir as Caraíbas.

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.
