  • The death toll from Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas will be "staggering", the country's government has warned as aid efforts are being stepped up.

    Officials are sending morticians and 200 body bags to the Abaco Islands, the worst-hit part of the archipelago.

    The storm, which has now weakened, is moving slowly north along the eastern US seaboard.

            Leave it to BBC to use this tragedy as a promotional opportunity.
            The “staggering” death toll for the entire island so far is fortunately only 50.
            Food and water started being flown and shipped in immediately.
            Why dramatize pain and suffering BBC?

              A strange phenomenon occurs after mass migrations from black and Latin nations.
              One immigrant moves into a affordable housing unit that is in high demand and he/she becomes the nightmare neighbor causing flight in all adjacent units.
              Then that nightmare neighbor uses this opportunity to move in her friends and families.
              I have witnesses time and time this strategy. If they fail to chase out a neighbor they will even resort to violence and playing the trumpet at 3AM. Nightly parties with rap and Latin music blasting is another form of psychological warfare they employ. Families with young children and the elderly are especially vulnerable victims of black/Latino nightmare neighbor strategies.
              Not nice people. Ruthless.

                The Bahamian government is right about hiding the amount of death, I mean what good can that do for those alive, it will just stress them and depressed them even more than they already are. Rescuing those alive is way more important before more lives are lost. This videos are really stunning to say the least and my heart goes out to this people, and hopefully future news won’t be as bad as expected. God bless you all.

                  In 1992 in Florida Hurricane Andrew killed 10's of thousands of people & the MSM covered it up & to this day only says 54. I went down there personally & interviewed people. One apartment complex that had over 800 units was not evacuated & only 7 people survived. Again, that was only 1 apartment complex. These liars in the MSM need to be arrested for their fake news. I'm sure the death toll in the Bahamas is also 10's of thousands but the MSM will lie about it.

                      I hate to say but with all he death, disease will soon follow, animals, feces, blood, human animal remains, no water, EVACUATE ABACO..I HATE TO SAY IT , BUT THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO EVACUATE THE ISLAND AND THEN PUT THE TORCH TO IT. That is the best way is the burning of the island with its death life will follow and return to the island..That is the best and only way.

                        The best long range weather forecast ever was made in 1987. It was predicted that due to climate change the weather would become ever more extreme and ever more chaotic.

                            30 dead is "staggering"?? The BBC has truly lost touch with reality. 100,000 would be staggering.

                                      How many people are homeless in the UK 2019?

                                      At least '320,000 people homeless in Britain' This year, 320,000 people were recorded as homeless in Britain, analysis from housing charity Shelter suggests. It is a rise of 13,000, or 4%, on last year's figures and equivalent to 36 new people becoming homeless every day.

                                              Is there such a thing as humanity? When Presidents in a first world country can take young able body people and send then across the world by the hundreds of thousands to kill and be killed on short notice, but can't respond to the needs of its neighbors across the water way, what a shame. Journalists are their before emergency relief supplies, that says alot about humanity. In times like these militaries should be there first. They have all the capabilities to come in from land, air and sea, on short notice with the logistics. Sad, the military is not for saving lives but destroying lives. Why do people think of money in time of natural disasters? All that is needed is the kindness of those who have. Be their for each other even with the little you have.

                                                        U know, i always see the climate change like compound interest. It begin small but at the end it'll make something really hugh. Apply into this, small change of the environment, u might ignore it and act like oh it's just bad weather for today but we're still good right. But you know, eventually at some point while we keep ignore every single change , nothing we could do about it cause it's to late to change our awareness

Trent means "30" Thelathwn in Arabic, "Thelathini" in Swahili. I was born on.... 🐻 with me, 7/27/1986. The 30th Sunday of the year at 3:32 am (full moon) in New Orleans. All the digits of birthday avg. are 5.714 squared is 32. T being the 20th etter of the alphabet Trent's letters add up to 77. I am the Trent. 377,030 people were born on my birthday. I am a holy Eunuch. Now, important, that asteroid headed towards earth in 10 years is Wormwood. Matt.24 parable of the fig tree. (Isreal became a nation in 1948) this is that generation. The global life expectancy is 71.5 years, US is 80. If Wormwood of Revelations is 10 away that gives us 4 years until the rapture (vanishing of saints and anything under 20 years old numbers(numerology) 32:11-12) the numerology for "she" s is 19 the letter. San-shi in mandorin Chinese "30". LaTrent means Trienta in Latin/Espanola. Daniel 11 the Antichrist despises the company of women who will rule the world. Do not accept the mark of the beast in your right hand or forehead( name or number) will be 666 name. Revelations 9:6 why did they wish they had gotten beheaded? Isaiah 47:3 why does rock girl for the Harlot of Babylon with 5 virgins for wives? I am the most precise perspective, the True Trent. Be blessed. Eunuch brook. Revelations 10, Arch angel brook.

However in case you didn't know the Bahamas is third richest country in the western hemisphere after the US and Canada. Also our currency is on par with the US dollar so therefore you cannot compare the Bahamas to Haiti.

                                                            Why don't understand my perspective then. My perspective is that Trump doesn't any qualities expected of a leader like integrity honesty intelligence tolerance compassion etc. Instead of uniting people he is dividing them. That is my perspective understand it.

                                                            It's the other way around: 185 km/h (115 mph).

                                                            Probably an error, as it should be 297 km/h.

                                                            You still can. Your tourist dollars would help the recovery.

                                                          Still low death toll, good evacuation plan Bahamas. The poor probably went to a public school that was built like a bomb shelter.

Yes some people are stupid and won't leave their homes no matter what. I bet it will be less than a hundred. I am worried about that church collapsing. That's bad.
