Powerful hurricane hits the Bahamas

Hurricane Dorian has brought widespread destruction to the Bahamas with the powerful storm hitting the island chain with sustained winds of more than 200 miles an hour.

It's not known if the eye of the hurricane will hit land, but Florida, as well as South Carolina and Georgia, have all ordered the mandatory evacuation of people living by the coast as a precaution.

At the very least, the storm is expected to cause dangerous winds and tidal surges.
