Hurricane Dorian is continuing to wreak havoc in the Bahamas. The hurricane caused massive storms and flooding.
So far, five people have been killed and many have been stranded on the Grand Bahama and Abaco Islands over the weekend.
The Category 3 storm pummeled the islands throughout Monday with up to 180-mile-per-hour winds and continued to be stalled in the region Tuesday.
Hurricane Dorian is one of the strongest recorded storms to ever strike the Atlantic, and is expected to continue a destructive path toward Florida and then onward to the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina.
It made landfall as a Category 5 storm in the Bahamas Sunday.
Democracy Now! speaks to two guests: Christian Campbell, a Bahamian poet, scholar and essayist, and Tiphanie Yanique, an award-winning poet and novelist from the U.S. Virgin Island of St. Thomas.
