Hurricane Killer. "Dorian" claimed the lives of five people
One of the most powerful hurricanes in the history of the region, Dorian, hit the Bahamas. Information on the consequences of the rampant is being updated.
Recently it became known that at least five people were killed in the Bahamas. Such data is published by the New York Times.
According to the Bahamas Press, citing eyewitnesses, the number of victims of the hurricane exceeds this figure. We are talking about the dead on the island of Abaco, in the north of the Bahamas.
Recall, “Dorian” hit the Bahamas last weekend. Local authorities declared "unprecedented damage." According to them, many houses are partially or completely destroyed.
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies says: about 13,000 houses are damaged or destroyed.
The media wrote that the wind speed inside the hurricane reached 256 kilometers per hour. On Tuesday, September 3, it can cover the US state of Florida.
In this regard, local authorities announced the evacuation. Also evacuate people in neighboring regions who were in the way of a hurricane.
An emergency regime other than Florida is declared in the states of Virginia, Georgia and South Carolina. There, citizens are evacuated from coastal settlements.
It is noted that a hurricane at some point reached the highest – fifth – category, which is rarely enough.
Recently, U.S. National Hurricane Observation Center specialists downgraded the category to 4th, but it also means a serious danger to people.
