As the Hurricane Dorian moves away from the Carribean archipelago, the Bahamas Prime Minister raised death count caused by this catastrophe from five to seven. He also said this death toll is expected to rise more.

However, the full scope of the disaster will only be known once the storm passes. He said, “We are in the midst of one of the greatest national crises in our country’s history. No effort or resources will be held back.”
