Aerial footage shows total devastation in Abaco, Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian

Truly horrific scenes of damage in the wake of Dorian.

Thatís awful and so devastating for everyone who lives there. The havoc that nature can cause is heartbreaking.

The News here is 24/7 on this event. I have just been watching ABC and they have a reporter on the Island.

Dreadful sights. To live under this type of threat for 6 months every year must be awful.

I've been watching the news here, it is devastating but can be rebuilt, it's the loss of life that is the real horror.

It is truly a worry, we had a home in Antigua for over 10 years, lived through many storms. Our home was built to the highest code standards we had roll down shutters and a generator our shingle roof let in rain when the winds blew really strongly and horizontally.

Our hurricane insurance was £5K a year and clearly many people cannot afford that. Every June I would watch the weather very carefully and still do as I have friends with homes there. Barbuda just 40 miles from our home was flattened two years ago just 6 weeks after we sold!

The whistling of the hurricane winds are still in my ears and the house shaking. It's very scary.
