The Bahamians were rescued by Hurricane Dorian by the United States Coast Guard, Royal Navy in England and a small number of relief organizations with jet skis and bulldozers, and a few aid groups brought food and medicine to survivors and brought the most desperate to safety. Went.

The most powerful storms that hit the historically recorded Bahamas, parked on Abaco and Grand Bahama islands, flooded the airport and flooded with 295 kph (185 mph) winds and heavy rains as the road was not overdone. Course to Florida.

People on the American coast were still ready for the storm with a dangerous 175 kph (110 mph) wind, which became a category 2 storm.

In Bahamas, a spokesman for the Red Cross, Matthew Cochrane, said more than 13,000 homes in Grand Bahamas and Abaco, or about 45{7be40b84a6a43fc4fae13304fce9a2695859798abfc41afd127b9f8b21c5f9c5}, were thought to be seriously damaged or destroyed. UN officials said more than 60,000 people on the smashed island need food, and the Red Cross has about 62,000 people need clean drinking water.

7 or more died

Prime Minister Herbert Minis said at least seven people were killed by Hurricane Dorian after the storm hit the island on Monday.

Minnis said additional deaths would rise to seven.

"We can expect more deaths to be recorded," he added.

Hurricane Dorian swung along the southeastern United States, packing a slightly weak but still strong punch.

The Bahamas National Security Minister, Marvin Dames, predicted that many of the seven deaths reported as monster storms in the Atlantic archipelago were killed and many more died.

The Nassau Guardian newspaper cited reporters to the dam.

Aerial footage of Great Abaco Island in Bahamas, broadcast by CNN, showed deadly damage scenes with hundreds of houses without roofs, overturned cars, extensive flooding and debris scattered around.

"This was a crisis of epic proportions," Dames said. "Maybe it was the worst experience in our life."

The runway at Grand Bahama International Airport in Freeport, the island's largest city, was underwater and complex in structure and recovery efforts.

Online Bahamas press released a flood video of the Land Memorial Hospital in Freeport and said patients should evacuate the facility.

The US Coast Guard sent an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter to Andros Island in southern Bahamas to help search and rescue operations for residents trapped in homes where residents are suffering from flooding.

The Bahamas Press published the names and photos of people reportedly missing by relatives on Abaco Island.

Five coast guard helicopters flew almost hourly to Abaco, flying more than 20 wounded to the main hospital in the capital.

British sailors also began to aid. A small number of civilian relief groups also tried to approach battered islands in northern Bahamas.

The U.S. Coast Guard airlifted more than 21 people who were injured in Abaco.

Florida East Coast

President Donald Trump said the hurricane's core is "almost parallel to Florida's east coast, but moving offshore."

"The United States may be a bit lucky with respect to Hurricane Dorian, but don't let the guards down. A lot of very bad and unpredictable things can happen as you head to the coast!" He tweeted.

"On the other hand, the Bahamas are devastated," he wrote.

Dorian, who abandoned 76 centimeters of rain in the Bahamas, was downgraded to a Category 2 hurricane following a five-step wind Tuesday morning.

But as it moved along the Florida coast, it remained a very dangerous storm.

An emergency was declared up and down the east coast for millions of US residents on the stormy path.

More than 2 million people have been warned to evacuate along the coasts of Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina. The threat of a direct attack on Florida almost disappeared, but Dorian was expected to attack North Carolina by getting closer to Georgia and South Carolina on Thursday or Friday.

The ministry said 5,000 defense and 2,700 active duty forces are ready to help if needed.

Some have lost everything

Red Cross spokesman Cochrane said it has approved $ 500,000 for primary disaster relief. UN spokesman Stephen Duzza Rick said the UN humanitarian team is ready to go to the affected area to assess the area and the needs of the country.

NHC says it packs a maximum sustained wind of 175 km per hour at 2300 GMT.

Dorian said he expects to head north on Wednesday evening.

"There will be a turn north Thursday Thursday northeast. The core of the hurricane dorian on this track will move closer to the east coast of Florida and the Georgian coast from Wednesday to Wednesday."

Yasmin Rigby, a resident of the freeport in the Bahamas, told AFP, "Most islands are still flooded and still windy and rainy."

"I'm still receiving calls from people asking for help," Rigby said. "I can not move from the apartment. Thankfully I have enough goods."

In the populous coconut grove of the Bahamas, residents were gathering supplies for hurricane victims.

“We are looking for water, canned food, can openers, flashlights, baby formulas, diapers, mosquito repellents, and small generators,” said Nathaniel Robinson, Greater St. Paul's Pastor of AME Church.

Robinson said seven seaplanes were on standby "when the weather permits".

"Wait tomorrow," he said.

Robinson said that some Church members had families who were "ravaged by storms."

"Some have lost everything they own," he said. "Their home, all forms of transportation, businesses. Absolutely nothing."

Henry Gomez, who visited Florida in New York, was one of those who stopped supplying. "I feel bad about what the Bahamas are going through right now," Gomez said. "We all have to hit the chips and help."
