CNN – Grand Bahama is facing “extreme flooding” after receiving 30 inches of rain from Dorian, the National Hurricane Center said in its 10 a.m. ET update Tuesday.

The island faces yet another day of dangerous winds and life-threatening storm surge as Dorian continues to inch its way over the Bahamas.

Along with the tremendous amounts of rainfall, the NHC said, Grand Bahama is seeing wind gusts measured at 140 mph and storm surge of 10 to 15 feet above normal tide levels, causing destructive waves.

These hazards from Dorian are forecast to continue on Grand Bahama through most of the day.

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.

London was hit by horror attacks in three different areas, with at least two people were killed and many more were injured by a van attack and stabbings.

Witnesses told Express.co.uk that a white van had appeared to purposefully hit pedestrians on the London Bridge at 10.08pm.

Dozens of people were on the bridge at the time of the attack.

The Telegraph reported that witnesses said 20 people were run down by a van and pedestrians were attacked with knives at 10.08pm.

There were also multiple reports of rapid gunfire at the scene.

It was also reported that a police officer at the scene urged people to run from the bridge and that the London Bridge is closed at both ends.

The London Bridge incident was followed by another incident in Borough Market on the south bank of the River Thames where three men ran towards the market, stabbing people as they ran.

The Telegraph also reported that police entered bars and restaurants in the Southwark area around 11pm and told customers to get down on the floor amid reports that the incident was still ongoing.

People outdoors were told by yelling police officers to run from the area as the atmosphere turned to one of “hysteria”.

Guests staying at Premier Inn on Borough High Street were evacuated as the police cordon extended.

The third incident happened in Vauxhall, South London, after the two incidents in Central London.

Metropolitan police tweeted at 11:44pm tonight that officers were on the scene.

It was later declared that this incident has nothing to do with the first two incidents.

Police have advised people to keep away from the area while The Shard and the News Building are also on lock down.

The Met urged people in the three affected areas to run, hide and call the police.

Prime Minister Theresa May said, “Following updates from police and security officials, I can confirm that the terrible incident in London is being treated as a potential act of terrorism.”
