Hurricane Dorian sat over the northwest Bahamas for more than 24 hours as a major category 5 hurricane. Agonizing hours of wind, storm surge, and flooding caused extreme damage to the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama. Unfathomable conditions have occurred on the islands, as winds over 150 mph battered the islands. WeatherNation crews were there, after the storm, witnessing first hand some of the heartbreaking scenes of devastation. WeatherNation field correspondent, Brandon Clement, witnessed the damage first hand. https://www.facebook.com/WeatherNation/videos/2474323772656033/   https://www.facebook.com/WeatherNation/videos/376517706354392/   The stories are heartbreaking- hearing from people who endured the storm, it is clear, there are many people who are going to have a very hard time recovering from the storm. https://youtu.be/0Vkkw-WBBJQ The Prime Minister of the Bahamas has been updating the media and public daily to assure residents that help is available and mobilized.
