Hurricane Dorian continues to hit the Bahamas despite its strength reported Tuesday with the death toll now reaches to seven.

Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Minnis described Dorian as the ‘greatest national crisis in history’ and announced the death toll and said it was expected to continue.

“We can expect more deaths to be recorded. This is just the information”, he told reporters.

As the typhoon left the Bahamas, more and more damage began.

“The water goes up to the roof and I can say it is at least six meters high. We were in good shape until the water level continued to rise and all home appliances started to float”.

“My wife has hypothermia and she can only stand in the kitchen closet. I was with her until the collapse”, crab catcher Howard Armstrong said.

CNN’s Great Abaco Island air footage in the Bahamas aired by CNN showed huge destruction with hundreds of homes missing roofs, inverted cars, flooding everywhere and scattered pieces of wood.

“Most of Abaco was destroyed. There are major floods, destruction of homes, business premises, other buildings and infrastructure”, Minnis said.

According to him, the Bahamas had to endure many hours of scary days and days, worrying for their own safety and loved ones.

The track at the Grand Bahama International Airport in Freeport, the country’s largest city, was also flooded, making it difficult for recovery and rescue work.
