Hurricane Dorian continues to take its toll and remains a threat. On Wednesday, the death toll in the Bahamas rose to at least 20 while the storm rose back up to a Category 3 hurricane. Thursday it was expected to hit the Carolinas, where it could bring the worst flooding there in three decades.
Officials in the Bahamas said 20 deaths have been confirmed so far, but that number is expected to rise. Prime Minister Hubert Minnis had already called the hurricane "one of the greatest national crises in our country's history."
Over in North Carolina, Governor Roy Cooper used the destruction in the Bahamas as a warning for residents in his state to heed evacuation orders. Cooper said in a statement, "We have seen the life-and-death effects of this storm in the Bahamas, and we urge everyone on the islands at the coast to leave." (NBC News)
