On this edition of Your Call, we’ll get an update on the Bahamas in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian. 

It is the strongest hurricane to hit the Bahamas to date, and has nearly devastated the Abaco Islands. The official death toll is currently at 45, but thousands are still unaccounted for, and food, water and medical supplies continue to be a growing need.
