The Bahamas have been pummelled by the hurricane, and as officials start to take stock of the damage, other countries are offering support.
Hubert Minnis, the Bahamas prime minister, said on Tuesday that he will speak with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday morning about Canadian assistance.
“Planning is underway, and well-resourced rescue teams are waiting for safe conditions to bring supplies to residents there. There is an outpouring of support by those devastated by Hurricane Dorian," Minnis said.
Mark Lowcock, the United Nations Under-Secretary-General and Emergency Relief Coordinator, and Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley will also visit the Bahamas to provide help.
