Communications are down; electricity is down, ' says Christy Delafield with the aid group Mercy Corps, which has a team on Grand Bahama Island.

Hurricane Dorian, which left a trail of bodies and desperation in its wake, had maximum sustained winds of 185 miles per hour (297 kph), with gusts up to 220 miles per hour (354 kph) when it hit the two islands in The Bahamas last week Sunday and Monday.

"Regardless of development, the system is expected to produce locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds over The Bahamas through the weekend", King said. The storm, which also hit the Virgin Islands, North Carolina's Outer Banks and near Halifax, Nova Scotia, is believed to have killed seven others in the south-east of the USA and Puerto Rico.

Some 70,000 people were in need of food and shelter, the World Food Programme estimated.

Jordan, who owns property in the Bahamas and frequently visits the islands, said in a statement Tuesday that he's "devastated" at the destruction brought by the storm, adding "my heart goes out to everyone who is suffering and to those who have lost loved ones".
