“Please Someone, Please Come Help Us” – Bahamians Walk Through Hurricane-Ravaged Apartment Pleading For Help (VIDEO)
Hurricane Dorian hit the Abaco Islands as a category 5 storm and left residents pleading for help as they walked through their devastated apartments.
Dorian is moving slow at only about 1 mph and hit the Elbow Cay of the Abaco islands Sunday afternoon with 185 mph winds and the gusts reached over 220 mph.
“There’s houses that are torn apart. There’s tree limbs in the road. There’s no green shrubbery left. It’s just shredded. It looks like a bomb went out,” Bruce Sawyer, a resident of the Abaco Islands told ABC.
“I think when the eye wall hit, we had 200-plus mile per hour winds that ripped everybody’s roofs and destroyed everybody’s structure and houses,” Sawyer told ABC News. “Probably one of the most terrifying things that ever happened. The windows were caving. The doors were caving in. I honestly thought that our roof was going to be ripped off as well.”
“Please someone, please come help us,” a Bahama resident pleaded as she walked through her apartment.
