Dorian Makes Direct Hit On Bahamas; Scenes of ‘Total Devastation’

Total Devastation strikes Great Abaco Island in the Bahamas.  The scene so far is unimaginable.

According to ABC News, when the Category 5 hurricane made landfall on Great Abaco Island, east of Miami, on Sunday at 2 p.m., Dorian’s maximum sustained winds were 185 mph — an Atlantic hurricane record matched only by a storm that struck the Florida Keys in 1935, the National Hurricane Center said.

Video posted to Twitter by local newspaper The Tribune, though not independently verified by NBC News, appeared to show widespread destruction on Abaco.

Leigh Lamattina-Davis, a resident of Marsh Harbor, a town of roughly 6,000 on Great Abaco, described the direct hit as “total devastation.”

“I am lucky to have half a house,” she said in a text message with NBC News. “My neighbors are demolished.”

Other social media postings seem to show similar devastation and heartfelt cries for help.

More video footage from the island seemed to match Lamattina-Davis’ description, showing flipped cars, sparking electrical lines, battered homes and flooded roads.

In one video, a family could be seen praying in a bathroom. In another, an entire neighborhood appears to have been swallowed by water. The footage has not been confirmed by NBC News. [Read More]

President Trump sent Prayers to the island.
