Hurricane Dorian makes landfall in USA

Rain had been pelting North Carolina and the beautiful Bahama beaches and stirring up hurricanes in what is said to be one of the most damaging storms ever to hit the area. Hurricane Dorian brought with it 257km/h winds and left 70 000 Bahamians in need of humanitarian help. In Carolina, just less than 1 million people had to evacuate their homes.

More than 210,000 homes and businesses were left without power.
