As recovery teams make their way to the hardest hit islands in the Bahamas, the death toll from Hurricane Dorian’s strike on the archipelago has risen to 30. Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said the death toll was expected to rise as storm rescue workers scour islands. The Bahamian government sent hundreds of police and marines into the stricken islands, along with doctors, nurses and other health care workers. The U.S. Coast Guard, Britain’s Royal Navy and relief organizations, including the United Nations and the Red Cross, joined the growing effort to rush food and medicine to survivors and lift the most desperate people to safety by helicopter. “We are seeing bravery and fortitude of Bahamians who endured hours and days of horror,” Minnis said. “Our urgent task will be to provide food, water, shelter and safety and security.”
