Stunning aerial footage from CNN shows the devastating Hurricane Dorian damage in the Bahamas
While tornados don’t cover nearly as wide an area as hurricanes, they are known for having more intense winds. But according to CNN meteorologist Jennifer Gray, the damage inflicted by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas was so intense that it combined the worst of both worlds — a wide path like a hurricane, combined with the intensity of a tornado.
A video aired by CNN on Tuesday showed an aerial view of the Bahamas’ Great Abaco Island following Hurricane Dorian. With the video playing, Gray commented, “It looks like tornado damage. This storm had the winds of an EF4 tornado. And imagine a tornado sitting on the same spot for several days; that’s the kind of damage that you’re seeing.”
A Gray colleague at CNN agreed, commenting on the “wide swath of devastation” on Great Abaco Island.
“It just goes on and on, and on,” she said — to which Gray agreed, commenting, “I think this damage is going to be so widespread.”
