Communication out of Great Abaco Island and the Bahamas remains limited after Hurricane Dorian unleashed havoc in the Atlantic.
Flooded structures and downed power lines have made communications a logistical challenge. Dorian lingered over the islands for days, leaving catastrophic damage in the form of 30 inches of rain in some parts.
CNN's Patrick Oppmann experienced these challenges first hand during a visit to Freeport, Grand Bahama, where he saw the lengths ordinary citizens had gone for their neighbors and loved ones in need.
Weather conditions in the Bahamas have improved dramatically today. However, outer bands will continue to track across the islands giving the chance for sporadic rain throughout the day, according to CNN meteorologist Judson Jones.
