CHARLOTTE, N.C. — From the Bahamas to the Atlantic Coast of the United States, millions of people were impacted by Hurricane Dorian.
The storm made landfall in the Bahamas as a catastrophic Category 5 hurricane. The current death toll in the Bahamas is 44 and likely to rise as search and rescue teams search devastated areas of the northern Bahamas. At least five deaths in the United States have been blamed on the storm.
The Prime Minister of the Bahamas said they are dealing with "a historic tragedy" and the devastation is "unprecedented and extensive."
On Monday, WCNC NBC Charlotte and the American Red Cross are teaming up for Hurricane Dorian relief. From 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., you can call the WCNC Red Cross phone bank at 704-329-3703 to make a donation toward relief in the Carolinas and the Bahamas.
