Hurricane Dorian: Latest photos, videos show massive damage in Bahamas

"The National Hurricane Center says storms of the size cause" devastating damage" and leaves the affected region uninhabitable for weeks or even months.

He did not provide more detail about the people killed in the storm.

The human cost of the storm is now unclear.

The US National Hurricane Centre (NHC) said that Grand Bahama Island will continue to suffer the effects of the hurricane into Tuesday morning.

Still, the potent storm was expected to stay close to shore and hammer the coast with risky winds and heavy surf, while authorities cautioned that it could still make landfall.

The National Hurricane Center has also extended the hurricane and storm warnings farther up the US east coast.

Trump on Sunday tweeted that Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama would "most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated".

An advisory from the hurricane center warned that Florida's east-central coast could see a brief tornado sometime Monday afternoon or evening. Dorian will then become a major threat to Georgia and SC, as the system recurves to the northeast.

Florida and Alabama share a border, but Alabama is about 250 miles from the Florida east coast at its closest point.

A Hurricane Warning is in effect for Grand Bahama and the Abacos Islands in the northwestern Bahamas, and for Jupiter Inlet to the Volusia/Brevard county line.

In Freeport, Dave Mackey recorded video showing water and floating debris surging around his house as the wind shrieked outside. The Washington Post reports that Freeport's airport is now under five feet of water. On Monday morning, it was reclassified as a Category 4. But a Category 5 is something that, uh, I don't know that I've ever even heard the term, other than I know it's there. "My brother, his girl and their two small boys are stuck in the roof of their home".

Dorian is considered the strongest storm on the planet this year.

The White House had already approved a similar emergency declaration for Florida, late last week.

Over the holiday weekend, the president played multiple rounds of golf at one of his properties in Virginia, where White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said he received "hourly updates".

A few hours later, Georgia's governor, Brian Kemp, ordered mandatory evacuations for that state's Atlantic coast, also starting at midday Monday. Now it seems to be going up toward SC, toward North Carolina.

Trump has pledged to provide federal assistance to state and local officials to deal with Hurricane Dorian.

Over half a million Jews live in South Florida and areas such as Palm Beach, Florida. Spann, a veteran Alabama forecaster who is widely respected for his coverage of tornado outbreaks, responded to Trump at 11:31 a.m. and said, "Alabama will not be impacted by Dorian in any way". "And the movement that it makes is going to have a lot of impact on Floridians". They are so powerful that they dictate where these big storms go. It shares this notoriety with the Labor Day hurricane of 1935, which doesn't have a name because storms at this time weren't named. According to reports, it's moving at a snail's pace of 1 miles per hour.
