Hurricane Dorian has utterly devastated The Bahamas. The storm was the most powerful to ever hit the country. It’s killed at least seven people in just two days. Some 13,000 homes in the islands Great Abaco and Great Bahama have been destroyed. Footage shows mile on mile of flooded streets and shredded buildings and shipping containers just thrown in every direction. The hurricane closed in on Florida’s coast on Tuesday evening too. Late Tuesday night, the National Hurricane Center warned that by Friday most of the southeast coast of the United States could face life-threatening conditions. More than one million US residents have been told to evacuate.
Now, joining me to talk about this is Jack Shapiro, who is a Senior Climate Campaigner at Greenpeace. He’s joining us today from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Thanks so much for being here, Jack.
