In The Bahamas, Hurricane Dorian Survivors Find Life Upended

It's been a week since one of the strongest Caribbean hurricanes on record plowed into the Bahamas.

According to Reuters, the capital city of Nassau is now facing a wave of thousands of evacuees.

They're fleeing hard-hit areas like the Abacos, where some 90% of the infrastructure is damaged or destroyed.

Officials are still pulling bodies from the wreckage, saying the current official death toll of 43 is likely to rise.

Survivors avoided death, but have lost their homes and jobs.

Some 70,000 people are in need of food and shelter.
