Over three weeks after the Bahamas was struck by one of the most powerful and devastating storms in its history, the full extent of the catastrophic damage caused by Hurricane Dorian is now clear, with Crawford’s President, U.S. Claims Solutions stating it will take years to rebuild.

The death toll in the Bahamas currently stands at 56 (28 September), with over 1,300 people still unaccounted for – a fact further exacerbated by the widely dispersed numbers of transient and undocumented populations, according to the National Emergency Management Agency.
