BAHAMAS - Hurricane Dorian

"Why Hurricane Dorian lingered for so long over the Bahamas" PBS NewsHour 9/3/2019


SUMMARY:  Why did Hurricane Dorian, the strongest storm on record to hit the Bahamas, linger over the island nation for so long?  Ken Graham, director of the National Hurricane Center, joins Judy Woodruff to explain the "rare" conditions that kept the storm battering Grand Bahama for more than 20 hours, creating a “devastating” situation for residents, and shares the latest forecast for the southeastern U.S.

SUMMARY:  The southeastern U.S. shoreline is watching Hurricane Dorian drive north, not far offshore.  The storm’s winds have dropped to 105 miles per hour, still plenty powerful but much less severe than those that blasted the northern Bahamas earlier this week.  John Yang reports and joins Judy Woodruff from Nassau with an update on a disaster whose scope of destruction is still coming into focus.
