Update (06:00 p.m. ET): Abaco Island has sustained major damage according to the Hope Town Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department.

“Now is not a time to panic now is the time to plan how to get the recovery started. Hope Town Fire and Rescue will be heading up the efforts for recovery,” said the department (h/t Epoch Times).

To try and convey just how powerful Dorian is, the Air Force’s Reconnaissance “hurricane hunter” planes are flying through what they call the “stadium effect” – which only happens in the strongest of hurricanes (also h/t Epoch Times).
