Bahamas Braces For Tropical Cyclone Nine Just Weeks After Hurricane Dorian Devastation

Another tropical storm warning was issued Thursday for the Bahamas; less than two weeks after Hurricane Dorian, a Category 5 hurricane devastated the island. 

According to NBC News, the U.S. National Weather Service sent an advisory warning that tropical storm conditions are expected in the northwest Bahamas, including the Abaco Islands, by late Friday. As of now, no significant storm surge is anticipated as the storm is only predicted to give off two to four inches of rain.

During Hurricane Dorian, The Abaco Islands were pummeled by the storm that wrecked the streets. After the storm, the area was filled with flattened houses, crushed businesses, wrecked boats and flipped cars.

The death toll following Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas climbed to 50 on Monday as 1,300 others remain unaccounted for.

A Trump administration official told NBC News on Wednesday that the U.S. will not be granting temporary protected status to people from the Bahamas after the horrific storm.

The status would have allowed Bahamians to work and live in the U.S. until it is determined safe to return home. Although administration denied the status, Bahamians can still come to the U.S. temporarily, if they have the right travel documents, but will not be granted work permits.

As of Monday, 1,500 victims of Dorian had come to the U.S. after the hurricane-ravaged through the Bahamas.
