From Twitter to Instagram; and any news source it’s been instant to see the devastating effects of Hurricane Dorian. Just how serious are things? Try $7.5 Billion in damages. PLUS, according to Wikipedia:
“Hurricane Dorian was the most powerful tropical cyclone on record to strike the Bahamas; and is regarded as the worst natural disaster in the country’s history. Dorian struck the Abaco Islands on September 1 with maximum sustained winds of 185 mph (295 km/h). Tying with the Labor Day hurricane of 1935 for the highest winds of an Atlantic hurricane ever recorded at landfall.
The resultant damage to these islands was catastrophic; most structures were destroyed or swept out to sea, and at least 70,000 people were left homeless. The hurricane proceeded along the coasts of the Southeastern United States and Atlantic Canada, leaving behind considerable damage and economic losses throughout those regions.”
Therefore, that leads us all to some logical questions. What’s being done to help those affected? Additionally, how may I and others support?
