Hurricane Dorian: 2.5 thousand people missing in Bahamas

The list of missing persons is still preliminary. All the data received has not yet been verified and databases are still being worked on.
As a result of the powerful Hurricane Dorian, which raged in the Bahamas for several days in a row, 2.5 thousand people are missing. Such data, as of 11 September, had been made public by the Commonwealth authorities of the Bahamas.

At the same time, the authorities stressed that the list of persons was still preliminary, as all the data received had not yet been verified and the databases were still being worked on.

The local authorities also confirmed 50 dead from Hurricane Dorian. Officials fear that the death toll will continue to rise, given the scale of the destruction. Thousands of people have been evacuated from the disaster zone, according to official figures.

However, the authorities talk about a “substantial reduction” in the number of citizens who ask for evacuation.

Recall, Hurricane Dorian destroyed more than 13,000 buildings in the Bahamas. Then the elements swept along the Atlantic coast of the United States to Canada.
