Hurricane Dorian wiped out entire neighborhoods and left scenes of complete destruction in areas of the Bahamas.

According to an article in the Washington Post, authorities say the recovery from the damage will cost billions. The hurricane is weaker now and rolling along the coast of Florida, but there could be more destruction coming soon. South Carolina is apparently already seeing flooding and it’s expected to get worse as the day progresses. The Post & Courier reports that forecasters expect a 10-foot high tide by 2 a.m. (EDT). Emergency officials have urged residents on the cost to evacuate. We get the latest on the hurricane and the potential impact to come.
