Hurricane Dorian Death Toll Rises

The number of confirmed dead after Hurricane Dorian rose to 43 Friday, and the figure was expected to grow “significantly” as recovery efforts continued in the Bahamas, the prime minister’s office said.

Some 70,000 people are in need of aid on Abaco and Grand Bahama islands, and thousands are desperately trying to find loved ones, with many gathering on social media and one main website in hopes of finding any news.

“Forty-three is the official count, many missing and this number is expected to grow significantly,” said Erica Wells Cox, a spokeswoman for Prime Minister Hubert Minnis.
