(Worthy News) - About 70,000 people need immediate humanitarian assistance in the Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian hit the island nation, as authorities said the final death toll could be "staggering".
Dorian, a category-five storm - which is the most powerful on the scale - has killed at least 30 people in the country but authorities expect that number to rise.
As many as 13,000 homes may have been destroyed or severely damaged after the nation was pounded by winds up to 185mph and gusts up to 220mph for days earlier this week. [ Source: Sky News (Read More...) ]
