First Video Showing Aftermath of Hurricane Dorian in Bahamas Revealed after Trump's Alabama Tweet
The hurricane season is in full flair and showed how much of a destructive force it could be with the category five Hurricane Dorian that hit the Bahamas. The very first video from the destruction that trailed the storm has been released on social media, and they didn't make for a great view.
Sunday marked the day Hurricane Dorian made its presence felt on earth as a category five, hitting hard on the Bahamas, and leaving behind a destruction trail in its wake. Finally, a video has been released in the aftermath of the storm, and it shows the extent of calamity that Dorian brought with it.
WPLG LOCAL 10 NEWS SHARES VIDEO CLIP OF THE AFTERMATH OF HURRICANE DORIAN
In a short video clip released via its twitter handle, WPLG Local News 10 showed the level of destruction Hurricane Dorian left. The post was captioned:
"First video coming from the Bahamas after Dorian passed through and its complete devastation."
The clip was 18 seconds long and showed the whole area covered by water, with many houses formerly standing now underwater, and only some house roofs visible.
Many tweeps responded to the video with some calling on everybody to take the issue of climate change seriously to reduce the impact of storms. Some of the replies also felt for those affected by the storm.
DORIAN ALREADY MAKING ITS WAY TO FLORIDA COAST
While it has shown its capabilities with the devastating effects on the Bahamas, Dorian is expected to continue eastwards, and head to the coast of Florida. From there it would then go through the states of Georgia, as well as the Carolinas for the rest of the week.
It, however, seems to have taken a little break after wreaking havoc on the Bahamas, but could pick up its intensity by Tuesday. With that in mind, many people are getting set for the storm, with Florida residents already securing their valuables or making plans to leave the city.
WEATHER CHANNEL SLAMMED FOR CROSSING THE LINE
While Hurricane Dorian was making headway into the Bahamas, it became difficult to get any images or videos from the affected areas due to the storm's impact. However, some affected people were able to share live videos and pictures on social media.
A woman with the twitter handle, @LoveDeje was able to share a video during the storm of how her house was under threat from the storm's winds as well as how water was beginning to find its way into her home.
In her caption, she prayed for God's help and also asked for people's prayers. Many sympathized with the woman and prayed for her, but "The Weather Channel," via its twitter handle, @wxnewsdesk, did more than that.
In reply to the woman's post, the channel expressed their sadness for what she was going through and immediately went ahead to ask her if they could use her video on television and media channels. That response from the channel received a massive backlash from tweeps, who felt they were insensitive to the woman's plight.
Many more made comments on the issue, with some suggesting that The Weather Channel should offer to pay for the video, enough to cover for the woman's expenses.
