Less than two weeks after Hurricane Dorian devastated the Northwest Region of the Commonwealth as a Category 5 hurricane, a tropical storm warning was issued Thursday in the Bahamas.
The US National Weather Service issued a warning that tropical storm conditions are expected in the northwestern part of the Bahamas, including the Abaco Islands, until late Friday. No significant storm surge is expected, as the storm is expected to release only two to four inches of rain.
The Abaco Islands were hit earlier this month by Hurricane Dorian, a storm that destroyed boats and overturned cars on the streets. After the storm, the area was filled with flattened houses, destroyed shops and ruined playgrounds.
The death toll from Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas rose to 50 on Monday.
A Trump administration official told NBC New Wednesday that the US does not grant temporary protection to the people of the Bahamas after the devastating storm grant.
The status would have allowed Bahamians to work and live in the US until the return home is considered safe. The same status is currently granted to more than 300,000 US residents from 10 countries, including the victims of the 2010 Haiti earthquake.
The Bahamas may temporarily travel to the US if they have the right travel documents but will not Work permit issued.
By Monday, 1,500 victims of Dorian had arrived in the US after the hurricane crossed the Bahamas for NBC News.
