The death toll: At least 43 people are dead, and officials expect that number to rise dramatically as rescue efforts continue.
The displaced: More than 70,000 people are homeless on Grand Bahama and the Abaco Islands, the parts of the Bahamas hardest hit by the hurricane.
The recovery: Search and recovery efforts in the Bahamas have been slowed down by ravaged infrastructure, after Dorian left behind piles of rubble and splintered homes.
The evacuees: A cruise ship brought nearly 1,500 hurricane survivors from the Bahamas to a port in Florida on Saturday. Evacuation efforts continued on Sunday with at least one charter flight bringing people from Marsh Harbour to Nassau.
From The Daily Mail:
A blind man was forced to carry his disabled adult son on his shoulders in chin-deep water as Hurricane Dorian tore apart their home in the Bahamas.
Brent Lowe, 49, rushed to save his 24-year-old son who has cerebral palsy when the deadly hurricane bore down on their home in the Abaco Islands on Sunday with 220 mph winds. Lowe, who has been blind for 11 years, told the New York Times that there were eight people sheltering in his cement home when the hurricane first made landfall. They were huddling together in the bathroom when the storm tore the roof off his home.
