Footage shared across social media on Monday and Tuesday showed the widespread, devastating destruction that Hurricane Dorian brought to the Bahamas after making landfall in the archipelago nation Sunday.

One video shared on Twitter showed major flooding at the Freeport International Airport, where there were no recognizable runways or airplanes underneath the waves crashing against the building.


Footage shared on Twitter by CBS News showed a pilot surveying the destruction around the country. He can be heard saying that the Abaco Islands, part of the Bahamas, were “gone,” as were other areas of the nation and emergency services such as fire stations. 

At least 13,000 homes in the Bahamas are feared destroyed or damaged, the International Red Cross told the BBC.

Water was seen flooding into the Rand Memorial Hospital’s emergency room after patients had to evacuate from the storm.

Other videos showed widespread destruction, with violent winds and waves from floodwaters. 

Some showed flooding on the second floor of homes as waves continued to crash against houses and destroy personal belongings throughout the country.
