Hurricane Dorian Strikes Bahamas

It’s the first Sunday in September 2019, Elbow Cay, Bahamas is Hurricane Dorian’s first victim. The rumored hurricane left the Bahamas looking unrecognizable. People, homes, stores, and streets were destroyed.

Resident Cleora Patricia Burton is one of the many people affected by Hurricane Dorian. She and her family fled the Bahamas to South Florida to find a safe place to call home with her two children. “What are we going to do? Where are we going to go? How are we going to survive this? That’s why we came,” Burton, 55, worried from Christ Episcopal Church, which has served as a donation center to provide for the victims of Hurricane Dorian.

On September 7, 2019, Hurricane Dorian began to approach Nova Scotia, Canada. Dorian moved north, and five hours later, Dorian made landfall near Sambro Creek in Nova Scotia, Canada. 400,000 people in Nova Scotia were without power due to Dorian.

By September 8, 2019 at 2 am, Dorian centered itself about five miles off the Magdalen Islands. Hurricane Dorian moved north, near Florida’s east coast (100 miles). It could potentially reach the coasts of South and North Carolina.
