Here in Grand Bahama everyone we speak to needs something; food, water, fuel or help rebuilding.

More tonight on @CBSNews
One of the most disturbing things I have seen on #GrandBahama which shows you the many layers of despair survivors face.

Today we also reached the @Equinor oil facility #Dorian ripped apart.

The company tells @cbsnews it “has not identified any oil on beaches” or “observed leakage of oil from our terminal to the sea.”

Our fourth @CBSNews report from on the ground in Grand Bahama.

Talking to people in #Dorian’s wake - seeing the extent of the devastation.

Thanks to @AlexanderMPena for filming/producing + @AnisahJabar in NY for making sure we made air.

#OriginalReporting #PrayfortheBahamas
Update: @Equinor announces today, “We will clean up the Bahamas oil spill.”

Here’s their statement -
Right now @CBSNews is embedded with @MiamiDadeFire + @CityofMiamiFire which offered rescue/recovery assistance to the Bahamas.

We are about to distribute aid to Grand Bahama island’s easternmost points.

Just one of the moving moments from our day long embed with US search + rescue teams.

A woman watches drone footage closely as City of Miami + Miami/Dade Fire Depts search for her seven missing relatives.

Inside this flattened house when #Dorian hit.

More on @CBSThisMorning
Miami firefighters deliver aid to stranded Bahamians as the search for the missing continues.

Here’s our @CBSThisMorning report from Freeport on our fourth day of reporting from the battered Grand Bahama Island.

#PrayForTheBahamas #Dorian
I understand why faith is getting so many families through the unimaginable horror of having missing loved ones, a full week after #Dorian.

And why everyone is so thankful for help in search and recovery efforts.

Here’s our @CBSEveningNews report.

just in:

#Dorian death toll in the Bahamas officially raised to 50.

Officials have “located and recovered” 42 people from the island of #Abaco and 8 from #GrandBahama. Officials add they “anticipate the discovery of more”

Since the storm, Tiffany Baillou hasn’t heard from her sister or brother-in-law living on #Abaco.

Here she shows @cbsnews her damaged home on Grand Bahama where she and her father are living. @CBSEveningNews
More European assets en route to the Bahamas right now, says @DefensieOnline (also source for pic).

650 from the Netherlands, Germany + France to assist with #Dorian aid/recovery.

@cdemacu requested. Based on what @cbsnews has witnessed on the ground - it’s desperately needed.
just in:

Americans helping Bahama significantly - but to a point.

While @USCG reports rescuing 406 people in #Dorian devastated areas, the White House confirms displaced Bahamians will not qualify for Temporary Protected Status.
