Hurricane Dorian expected to pass dangerously close to South Carolina

The most powerful hurricane to hit the Bahamas has left at least five people dead, destroyed 45 per cent of the homes in Grand Bahama and Abaco and left tens of thousands without food or drinking water.

Dorian is now expected to pass dangerously close to South Carolina and perhaps strike North Carolina on Thursday or Friday. Meanwhile, Environment Canada says it’s time for people in the Atlantic provinces to re-visit their emergency plans. Hurricane Dorian could still be packing hurricane-force winds when it reaches Nova Scotia by Saturday morning.
