While the North and South Carolina coasts are just now feeling the effects of Hurricane Dorian, residents of the Bahamas are sifting through rubble the storm left behind. Dorian was a category 5 storm when it hit the Bahamas on Sunday, with most of the damage done to the Bahamian islands of Grand Bahama and Abaco, where the storm stalled for almost two days. At least 23 people have died.
