Bahamas officials say thousands missing in Dorian's wake

Hurricane Dorian

"The Bahamians impacted by Hurricane Dorian are facing a humanitarian crisis, and the American government, global partners and private organizations continue to support them with aid and services". We talk with first responders and eyewitnesses.

More than 1,000 buildings were destroyed in Marsh Harbour, one of the hardest hit areas of the Bahamas.

"It's been a week since Dorian unleashed ferocious rain and wind gusts on the Bahamas, and the challenges of bringing in supplies, transporting them around the islands and spreading word are undiminished".

Bahamian officials said on Wednesday that 2,500 people have been registered as missing in the wake of the devastating Hurricane Dorian but cautioned the full list of missing has not been checked to see if any of those people are in shelters.

But the names have yet to be cross-checked against the lists of people evacuated from the devastated islands or staying in shelters. Houses are flattened and heaps of rubble are spread over a wide area.

"As the public seeks information on how they can best help the country recover, the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism & Aviation urges consumers to know that the best thing they can do for the country, now more than ever is simple: visit the Bahamas", the ministry said in a statement.

"Jonathan Rath Hoffman, the chief Pentagon spokesman, said Monday that four Marine Corps MV-22 Ospreys from the USS Bataan had flown Air Force members to the Bahamas to assess whether airports are capable of receiving C-130 and C-17 aircraft". The strong Category 5 storm reached the Abacos on September 1 and stalled for two days as it slowly crossed Grand Bahama. "No other Navy combatant ship has been involved in the operation".
