Some 1,300 people are still unaccounted for in the Bahamas following Hurricane Dorian, officials said Thursday, down from the 2,500 previously reported.
The Bahamian National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) attributed the drop to cross-referencing names of missing persons with those in shelters. ‘It’s very fluid,’ NEMA spokesman Carl Smith told reporters at a press conference in Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas. —APP
