Hurricane Dorian: Bahamas slammed by category five storm

Hurricane Dorian is slamming into the north-western Bahamas as a catastrophic category five storm with sustained winds of up to 180mph (285km/h).
The “extremely dangerous” storm is the strongest hurricane on modern record in the area, the US National Hurricane Center (NHC) says.
Grand Bahama residents have been evacuating from its predicted path.
A storm surge could be life-threatening and as high as 23ft (7m) in places, officials warn.
At 11:00 local time (15:00 GMT) the NHC reported “catastrophic conditions” in the Abaco islands in the northern Bahamas.
Dorian, moving westward at 7mph (11km/h), is expected to continue to move over Great Abaco Island and near, or over, Grand Bahama Island later on Sunday into Monday. Read More….
