Hurricane Dorian - Good360

Hurricane Dorian

Support is Underway

Hurricane Dorian was the most intense tropical cyclone on record to strike the Bahamas, and is regarded as the worst natural disaster in the country’s history. Dorian struck the Abaco Islands on September 1, 2019 with maximum sustained winds of 185 mph. Dorian went on to strike Grand Bahama at similar intensity, stalling just north of the island with unrelenting winds for at least 24 hours. The damage to these islands was catastrophic; most structures were flattened or swept to sea, and at least 70,000 people were left homeless. After devastating the Bahamas, Dorian proceeded along the coasts of the Southeastern United States up to the Outer Banks in North Carolina, leaving behind considerable damage and economic losses in those regions.
