Videos, photos show destruction in Bahamas as Hurricane Dorian moves north

People living on the islands tweeted photos and video capturing the devastation

NASSAU, The Bahamas — Hurricane Dorian’s winds have weekend and the storm is finally moving Northwest, a huge relief for people in the Bahamas.

Dorian, one of the most powerful storms ever seen in the Atlantic, sat on top of the Bahamas for more than a day tearing down buildings and flooding homes across hundreds of islands. The storm had maximum sustained winds of 185 mph with gusts over 220 mph.

Travis C-Carroll, a journalist working for The Nassau Guardian, shared some of the first aerial images of Abaco. The destruction looks endless with debris covering the land and homes heavily damaged.
