Dorian has killed at least 50 people, and the death toll is expected to go up as search-and-rescue crews scour through the ruins
An estimated 2,500 people are listed as missing in the Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian crashed ashore nearly two weeks ago, the government said.(CNN) Dorian flattened homes after it made landfall on September 1, killing at least 50 people, officials said. The death toll is expected to go up as search-and-rescue crews scour through the ruins in Grand Bahama and Abaco islands. The list is preliminary and all the names have not been confirmed against government records and evacuees, said Carl Smith of the Bahamas' National Emergency Management Agency. He urged people to continue submitting missing persons through the hotline or visiting the social services office, which is handling the missing people register. "As we are able to cross-reference our data sets, we will be able to inform family members and reunite survivors with loved ones," he said. Read MoreHurricane Dorian tore though the islands as a Category 5 -- the strongest hurricane ever to make landfall in the Bahamas. The first sweep of hard-hit northern islands -- where some 70,000 people have lost almost everything -- has been completed, including at least a first check for anyone in need of rescue, food or water and an assessment of damage and sanitation needs, said Daniel Gajewski of Fairfax County, Virginia's Urban Search and Rescue team. "Lately it has been a lot of reconnaissance, a lot of building structures, and then from there we're getting a pulse on the locals," said Gajewski, who was deployed through the US Agency for International Development, or USAID. Dorian's official death toll in the Bahamas now stands at 50, police said, though the grim number is expected to rise. Bahamian Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said the government is working to set up temporary housing for those who lost their homes, adding that he visited shelters in New Providence that are providing temporary housing to evacuees from Abaco and Grand Bahama. He warned against re-circulating"false information" that was spreading discord in the community. Read more: CNN
Let me guess, hurricane Dorian was Trump’s fault.... start rebuilding from the rubble--that is recycling. Helps find human remains and clean up the ground just use hammer and nails and build back some of what was 'lost'. Human beings need shelter and home to sleep in. Don't be overwhelmed, help the Dorian Homeless get their lives
I’m praying for everyone touched by the hurricane Dorian and I also send my condolences to all the family who has lost someone due to the hurricane and also mercifully asked everyone here in the state if you can donate and help out please thanks and have a blessed day. improve every persons and organisations to shave more, wasn't you objective ?
We pray for them👋

New Pop-Up National Park Offers 500 Square Feet Of Pristine Wilderness For Next 2 DaysATLANTIC CITY, NJ—With its organizers hailing the temporary site as the city’s hottest destination this week, a new pop-up national park offers 500 square feet of pristine wilderness for the next two days, sources confirmed Wednesday. “Starting bright and early this morning and continuing through dusk tomorrow, the best Instagram opportunity in the city will be the Pavati National Park, with its .000017935 square miles of scenic vistas, 15-foot-long hiking trails, and over 10 species of flora and fauna,” said pop-up organizer Kellen D’Agostino, showing off the national park’s choice location just minutes from the Atlantic City boardwalk, adding that he was planning to tour the site through select cities so urban dwellers across the country could take in the beauty of America’s natural world. “For a limited time and just a $50 entrance fee, visitors can breathe in the fresh air while walking between the pop-up park’s dozen mountain hemlocks, or relax next to the gorgeous three-foot waterfall in its northwest corner. There’s a little salmon run, too, as well as sage grouses, bald eagles, a moose, and a variety of other amazing animals you’ll be able to photograph from a safe distance. Of course, communing with nature doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice comfort and fun—our pop-up park includes an artisanal small bites station, three minibars, coat check, and even a cozy cabin one lucky couple can book for the night—just don’t feed hors d’oeuvres to the animals! Arrive early, because we’re capping the national park at 30 people at a time. You do not want to miss the exclusive national park event of the fall!” At press time, the pop-up national park had been ordered to close after a bear escaped and mauled several pedestrians in the middle of N. Albany Avenue. Was this the inspiration? with starbucks inside The bear killed me.
