ABC New reported that the category 5 Hurricane Dorian, which came ashore on Elbow Cay of the Abaco Islands, is tied for the strongest Atlantic hurricane landfall on record, along with a hurricane on Labor Day in 1935 that struck the Florida Keys and moved up along the Gulf Coast of Florida.
The eye of the storm made a second landfall at 2 p.m. on the island near Marsh Harbour, and a third landfall an hour before midnight on the eastern end of Grand Bahama Island.
Devastating conditions continued on the Abaco Islands overnight, with western portions of Grand Bahama, including the main city of Freeport, seeing the situation head south through the early morning.
Below is a report by The Guardian – Category 5 Hurricane Dorian pounds Bahamas – as it happened:
Hurricane Dorian has pounded the northernmost islands of the Bahamas with winds reaching speeds of more than 220mph (355kmh).
The first death was reported from the hurricane by Eyewitness News in the Bahamas, which spoke with a woman who said she had learned her eight-year-old grandson had died, likely drowned, and her granddaughter was missing. Both children were in the Abaco Islands.
Dorian is the biggest storm to hit the island chain in modern times and has been described as “catastrophic” and posing a “life-threatening” risk.
Meteorologists are finding it difficult to predict the path of the hurricane because of its wide “cone of uncertainty”. Though the Bahamas will probably suffer the most devastation, the big question in terms of scale of potential human suffering is where and when Dorian will hit along the east coast of the US, where population density is so much greater.
Georgia and South Carolina issued evacuation orders for their coastal communities on Sunday night as the National Hurricane Center warned of storm surges that could reach 18ft to 23ft (5.5m-7m) above normal levels.
On Great Abaco Island in the Bahamas, footage emerged of floodwaters reaching halfway up the sides of family homes with parts of the roofs torn off. The island chain’s homes are built to withstand winds of at least 150mph (241km/h).
Bahamian prime minister Hubert Minnis said in a televised address: “This is probably the most sad and worst day of my life to address the Bahamian people. I just want to say as a physician I’ve been trained to withstand many things, but never anything like this.
The Star Onlone – SEREMBAN: The authorities have ruled out foul play in the mysterious death of Nora Anne Quoirin, whose remains were found in a stream 10 days after she disappeared from a resort in Pantai Hills near here.
Medical experts who conducted a nine-hour autopsy on her remains ruled that her death was caused due to upper gastrointestinal bleeding, said state police chief Datuk Mohamad Mat Yusop.
“They also found that she was not raped.
“There was nothing to show that she was abducted or subjected to any form of violence, ” he told reporters at the state police contingent here Thursday (Aug 15).
DCP Mohamad said the postmortem finding also ruled that Nora could have been dead between two and three days before she was found.
“There were no injuries to her body, except for a bruise to her leg.
“But this was not cause of her death, ” he said.
The four-member team led by Kuala Lumpur Hospital forensic pathologist Dr Siew Sheue Feng also included HTJ forensic pathologist Dr Hanif Mohammad and Dr Aidora Saedon from the Chemistry Department and Sufian Arshad Ahmad from the Forensic Department.
A search-and-rescue team found Nora Anne’s remains in a stream some 2.5km away from the The Dusun resort she was staying in with her family.
She had checked into the resort with her parents Sebastian Marie Philipe and Meabh Jaseprine Quoirin and siblings Innes Julia and Maurice Arthure on Aug 3.
However she was not found in the room she shared with her siblings the following morning.
A window in the room that could only be opened from the inside was open.
Authorities gave no details about the circumstances of the shooting except that it occurred in the city’s Oregon District, an historic neighbourhood known for its nightclubs, bars, art galleries and shops.
The Dayton Daily News said the shooting occurred at or near an establishment called Ned Pepper’s Bar in Dayton’s Oregon District.
A report by CNN stated that the incident happened at around 1:00 a.m. ET in a popular area in downtown Dayton on August 4; only about 13 hours after a shooting that left 20 dead in El Paso, Texas.
CNN also reported, Dayton Police Department’s Assistant Police Chief Matt Carper said in a news conference that the shooter has been shot dead by responding police officers.

At least 22 people including children were killed in an explosion at the Ariana Grande pop concert which was held at the Manchester Arena last night.
The horrific blast sent thousands of adults, teenagers and children screamed and fled in panic from the packed Europe’s largest indoor arena as people were leaving the arena after the concert ended.
The Sun reported that, “Witnesses told of seeing shards of metal tearing into concert-goers in the foyer area of the world-famous concert venue – leaving dozens lying in pools of blood.”
According to The Telegraph, at least 59 others were injured and many others are still missing and desperate parents have spent the night searching for loved ones, some as young as eight years old, who have been missing since the explosion.
The Telegraph also reported that police believe that the attack was carried out by one man who died at the scene, although they are still working to establish if he “was acting alone or as part of a network”.
The suicide bomber was reported to detonate an explosive device in the foyer outside the main hall of the arena.
Sixty ambulances flooded the area and more than 400 police officers were deployed.
The first victim to be named after an explosion is Georgina Callander, 18.
Prime Minister Theresa May suspended all election campaigning due to the incident.
My deepest condolences to all the family and friends of the victims.
