Looking Back at Hurricane Dorian
The first major hurricane of the 2019 Atlantic season was a long-lived destructive and deadly storm. At it’s peak, Hurricane Dorian was a catastrophic Category 5 tropical cyclone with a maximum sustained wind speed of 185 miles per hour and a central pressure of 910 millibars. This was the strongest hurricane on record to make landfall in The Bahamas, responsible for a significant loss of life and unthinkable destruction. Sadly, the northern Bahamas islands will never be the same. Other Caribbean islands as well as the United States and Canada also dealt with Dorian, but on a lesser—yet still impactful—scale.
