Dorian recovery dire as supplies dwindle in Bahamas

Dorian fast facts

Dorian continued lashing eastern Canada with hurricane-force winds, having made landfall in Nova Scotia on Saturday, according to a 2 p.m. ET Sunday advisory from the National Hurricane Center. Dorian was traveling over the northeastern Gulf of St. Lawrence and is 40 miles east of Chevery, Quebec and about 145 miles north-northeast of Cape St. George, Newfoundland. It had maximum sustained winds of 75 mph and was moving northeast at 25 mph.

Boats were pulled from the water in Hyannis, Massachusetts, on Friday and ferries waved their fees to bring residents on nearby islands back to the mainland.

The monster storm was blamed for at least 43 deaths in the Bahamas. It's a number that officials warn will surely grow as thousands of people remain missing. Nearly 70,000 people are believed to be homeless on the islands, the U.N. said Friday.

Power outages hit Nova Scotia

Dorian made landfall near Sambo Creak, Nova Scotia Saturday evening, about 15 miles south of Halifax. The storm brought maximum sustained winds of 100 mph and plunged parts of Nova Scotia into darkness.

Initially, Nova Scotia Power Inc. reported more than 300,000 customers were without power in parts of Halifax, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick. A National Hurricane Center update revised that number up to half a million.

CEO Karen Hutt told The Associated Press that 1,000 workers were at the ready to restore power once conditions became safe enough to do so. It could take days before power is fully restored.

Bahamas grapples with Dorian

Dorian recovery dire as supplies dwindle in Bahamas

The humanitarian crisis in the Bahamas is growing increasingly dire almost a week after Hurricane Dorian made landfall. The death toll now stands at 43 and is expected to significantly rise.

Food, water and other supplies are rapidly running out.

More than 1,000 people evacuated from the Caribbean nation arrived on a cruise ship in Florida on Saturday, reports Errol Barnett.

He noted that CBS News also witnessed long lines outside Freeport banks and grocery stores as residents attempt to return to normalcy. One resident said it could take a couple of years before he'd be fully recovered.

CBS News also came across an Equinor Oil complex that was battered by the storm. In a statement, Equinor Oil said it is safe-guarding the environment and has "not identified any oil on beaches and we have not observed leakage of oil from our terminal to the sea."

However, widespread contamination appears to be evident. It's just one more aspect of recovery for the bahamian government to address.

North Carolina assess Dorian damage

North Carolina assesses Hurricane Dorian damage

North Carolina is sending aid to its Outer Banks. This weekend, help is coming from the air — helicopters rescued people from their waterlogged homes — and from the sea, where ferry service is bringing food, water and other supples to residents cut off from the mainland.

Despite a mandatory evacuation order for Ocracoke Island, an estimated 800 people were still in their homes Friday when the Category 1 storm slammed into the tiny barrier island. Search and rescue teams went door to door, sometimes by boat, to check on residents looking for help.

Elsewhere in North Carolina, Dorian damaged parts of the main highway on the Outer Banks. Several sections of the road were buckled by the waves. State officials say it could take weeks to fix the roads. Flooded roads and downed power lines also made getting around a problem.

Wind gusts over 70 miles per hour damaged trees and some homes, leaving residents to pick up after Dorian.

North Carolina governor confirms 2nd Hurricane death

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper confirmed during a press conference on Saturday that another person was found dead in the wake of Hurricane Dorian. At least two people have died in North Carolina.

Cooper described the second victim as a 67-year-old man from Pamlico County. The man reportedly fell from a ladder while preparing for the storm.

Cooper toured multiple regions impacted by the storm, including Ocracoke Island and Emerald Isle.

"Overall this could have been much worse for our state," Cooper admitted. "The people who did get significant wind damage — this is a bad situation for them but in North Carolina, we are going to pull together and we are going to work to … get back to normal as soon as possible."

​Coast Guard rescues 290 in the Bahamas

Coast Guard rescues dozens after Hurricane Dorian

The U.S. Coast Guard said it has rescued at least 290 people in the Bahamas since the hurricane devastated the string of islands this week. Six MH-60 Jayhawk helicopters conducted search and rescue operations and provided logistical support.

Last week, "CBS Evening News" flew with the Coast Guard' over the islands hit hardest by the hurricane.

"Our primary mission is search and rescue. We can suffer some casualty to the plane to save a life but our primary mission is to save a life," Lieutenant Julianna White told CBS News.

The Coast Guard Air Station Miami is no stranger to these missions. In 2005, they rescued nearly 800 people following Hurricane Katrina. Lieutenant Jillian Harner said even one rescue makes all the hard work worth it.

"It's definitely an honor. You have one case of rescues, it's the best feeling. It makes the training you've done worth it," Harner said.

Cruise ship evacuates 1,500 in Bahamas

The Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line helped evacuate more than 1,500 people from Grand Bahama island. The cruise ship brought evacuees to West Palm Beach, Florida.

"Every donation we've received so far has significantly helped in our mission to bring relief and aid to our brothers and sisters on Grand Bahama Island — our beloved second home. Together with first responders and volunteers, we were able to provide Bahamian residents with food, water, personal hygiene products, medical equipment, generators, and other desperately-needed supplies."

​"Catastrophic" flooding in North Carolina

Video taken by sheriffs deputies shows an overhead view of the destruction left by Dorian as the storm passed through coastal North Carolina.

Thelma Horner, 95, nearly lost part of her home when wind gusts ripped an 80 foot tree out of the ground.

"I'm glad that it's in the street and not in the yard," she said.

Heavy winds on the Outer Banks ripped siding off of homes and snapped telephone poles in half. rough surf from dorian washed away a third of this long-standing pier.

First responders are conducting rescue missions in the heavily flooded Ocracoke Island. An estimated 800 residents defied evacuation orders for the island, which is only accessible by air or boat.

Governor Roy Cooper described the flooding as catastrophic. "Currently, the island has no electricity and many of the homes are still under water," Cooper said in a news conference.

Officials in New Jersey and New York have banned swimming and surfing at their beaches while Dorian makes its way to Canada. The National Weather Service predicts ocean swells as large as 10 feet,.but some locals are not as worried.

76,000 people in need of aid in Bahamas

"CBS Evening News" landed at what's now a shelter for survivors who have been waiting in terminal seats for days. Most are now homeless. Maxine Ferguson and her two teenage sons have been sleeping on a makeshift bed. "Abaco has always been my home," she said.

Her home was 15 miles away. The hotel where she works is gone, too.

"If there's nothing here, we can't work, we can't make money. We can't pay bills, we can't do nothing. I would love to come back, it hurts me to leave. But my kids," Ferguson said.

As they wait, a group of Abacos residents wait lined up. There are 76,000 people who need aid, including survivors with medical needs, pregnant women and children are a priority to evacuate.

A few hours after CBS News met Ferguson, she was told a plane was coming for her. She wants to get to Nassau where she has family. But she said, like so many in the Bahamas, she has no home insurance and no means to rebuild.

​"There's nothing I could save"

Residents wait in long lines for water on Grand Bahama island

CBS News saw long lines of people waiting for food and water on Grand Bahama island Friday. The crew also witnessed the devastation left behind by Dorian.

For Kenneth Knowles and his family, taking an overnight ferry home to Freeport was bittersweet. "We did suffer catastrophic damage at our business so we're now going home to try to see what's there," he said.

They were aboard a vessel carrying desperately needed humanitarian aid to those hardest hit by the storm. As soon as CBS News arrived and ventured through Freeport, there were people lined up for hours in hopes of getting ice and water.

Brenda Suberallen rode out the storm in Freeport and came back to her uprooted home to salvage what she could. "There's nothing I could save really, not a thing," she said.

The further east, the worse it gets. Then, the only highway across the island, ends. The main highway out of Freeport has been completely devastated. A lot of people left their vehicles behind on the side of the road. That's one reason why it's so challenging to get aid through the country.

Keeno Lettice and his father are trying to make contact with friends they haven't spoken with since the storm. But seeing the state of the road, they turned back.

​Crews rescue stranded residents in North Carolina

Hundreds stranded after Dorian hit North Carolina coast

A rescue is underway along the coast of North Carolina. Hundreds who refused to evacuate Ocracoke Island were stranded when Dorian slammed into the Outer Banks Friday morning.

Late Friday afternoon, the first chopper took off for Ocracoke once winds subsided to rescue the nearly 800 people trapped there. Dorian's howling winds, torrents of rain and surging seas caught many of the hurricane hardened residents of the island by surprise.

"All of this has happened in a few minutes. It's coming into the house. It's coming in under the door," one homeowner said.

People who defied a mandatory evacuation order got caught in a storm surge of up to seven feet and were forced to higher ground.

"The water levels rose so quickly literally I would say within 30 minutes we had four feet of water and it kept rising," said Benny Lacks.

Those who were able to, left by boat.

Officials urged to "show your faces" in the Bahamas

Bahamians lash out at government over disaster response: "We are on our own"

A volunteer firefighter in the Bahamas called on government officials to come to the remote islands hit by Dorian. "People are getting violent, angry, upset, and we're trying to get our government officials- if you guys do see this, please come down here and show your faces," Greg Johnson told CBS News on Treasure Cay.

"We need you guys to show your faces here, so the people can understand and know that you guys care," Johnson said. "At this point in time, we are on our own, and the U.S. is the only place that is helping us."

Renowned chef José Andrés has been delivering food to people through his nonprofit organization, World Central Kitchen. Andrés told CBS News he asked Bahamian authorities where they'd like him to go, and he didn't receive a response.

Chef José Andrés is bringing thousands of meals to the Bahamas

Chef José Andrés on a mission to deliver thousands of meals to the Bahamas

Chef José Andrés, whose World Central Kitchen delivers meals after natural disasters, has taken his mission to a remote island cut off by Hurricane Dorian. CBS News went with Andrés to Green Turtle Cay in the Bahamas.

Andres took off from Nassau with a helicopter full of so much water and food that some of it was in his lap.

"We are going to deliver 7,400 meals. But for me, this is half of what we are supposed to be doing already," he said.

When he landed in Green Turtle Cay, people were waiting. On the island of just 550 people, it looked as though most every structure was damaged or destroyed. People said they have no power, and they need help.

From there, Andrés headed for Treasure Cay. A woman at the community center told the chef what they need for the community of roughly 1,500 people. "What we need is pasta, pasta sauce, can goods, rice, grits, shelf stable," she said.

​"I should have been dead": Survivors face uncertain future in Bahamas

Hurricane Dorian survivors face uncertain future in the Bahamas

Neighborhoods have been destroyed after Dorian's 185 mph winds tore through the Bahamas. Some people are just learning the fate of their loved ones.

"Glad to be alive. This is the second time in my life I should have been dead," said Doug, a 75-year-old man who did not want to give his last name.

He told "CBS Evening News" a harrowing story of survival after his home, a boat, was swept away, leaving him in debris-filled water. He was rescued from Abaco Island Wednesday and flown to Princess Margaret Hospital, just in time, he said, to save his legs from amputation.

"I believe in God," he said.

About 13 miles from the hospital, helicopters continue to fly in survivors, like 1-year-old Reign and her mother, Ostina Dean.

"What kept me going was the child, that was it. I looked at her and I was like no, my baby's not going out like this," Dean said.

Her entire family was rescued from Abaco Island on Thursday, including 11-year-old Zion. His young eyes witnessed far more than any child should ever have to.

"My heart just stop like it… I was panicking. I opened my eyes wide. I couldn't believe what I was seeing," he said.

Canadian author Margaret Atwood's 1985 dystopian novel, "The Handmaid's Tale," about a United States taken over by Christian zealots who force women to serve as sex slaves and child bearers for a powerful elite, became a bestseller and an Emmy-winning TV series. It has also introduced the iconography of Gilead into today's political discussions. Now, Atwood has penned a sequel, "The Testaments," which has been shortlisted for the Booker Prize. She tells correspondent Martha Teichner that while she wrote the books as a warning, she does not see herself as a prophet.
