At least five were killed after Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas on Monday, forcing a mass evacuation off the east coast of the United States.

Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Minnis described the natural disaster as a historic tragedy on the island.

“So far, the Royal Bahamas Police Force has confirmed the deaths of five in Abaco,” Minnis said in a press conference.

“The rescue team will be on their way to Abaco to identify and conduct a full and detailed evaluation”, he said.

Dorian turned into a Category 5 hurricane after landing in Abaco with winds of up to 290 kilometers per hour.

Weather forecasters predict that the hurricane will continue to hit the Bahamas to this day.

Earlier the Red Cross Organization (IFRC) predicted more than 13,000 buildings could be at risk of damage or destruction caused by Dorian.
