How to Help the Bahamas After Hurricane Dorian
Hurricane Dorian made landfall as a Category 5 monster and devastated the northwestern Bahamas with catastrophic winds and storm surge.
The hurricane’s impact on the archipelago has been called a “historic tragedy," leaving at least seven people dead and homes and buildings demolished. Dorian is the most powerful hurricane on-record to hit the Bahamas.
As Bahamians reel from the devastating effects of the storm, here's how you can help with relief efforts.
