Death Toll from Hurricane Dorian Continues to Rise in the Bahamas


The death toll from Hurricane Dorian continues to rise in the Bahamas.


At least 56 people have been killed. At least 45 deaths on Abaco and eight on Grand Bahama. Of the fatalities, 52 were directly caused by the hurricane, while one was considered indirect.


There are still an estimated 600 people missing.


The damage was preliminarily estimated at more than US$7 billion.


According to Latoya Munroe, a primary doctor in northern Abaco, the official death toll excludes undocumented immigrants, namely Haitians.


Morgues in Abaco and Nassau reached capacity within a week of the hurricane. The excess bodies were stored in refrigerated shipping containers.
