The Government of Peru expressed its solidarity with the Government and people of the Bahamas for “the unfortunate losses” caused by the passage of Hurricane Dorian.
The message was posted on the official Twitter account of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said the newspaper El Comercio.
The Peruvian Government also hoped for a fast recovery of the damaged localities in the Bahamas.
“Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Minnis reported Monday at a press conference that at least five people died in the Abaco Islands because of Hurricane Dorian”, the aforementioned website revealed. However, the exact number of victims will not be known until the hurricane leaves the region.
For their part, Red Cross officials estimated about 13,000 homes destroyed in the Abaco Islands, the area of the Atlantic archipelago of the Bahamas that first suffered the force of Hurricane Dorian on its way to the east coast of the United States.
The Red Cross also believes that the monumental floods that were recorded during Sunday in the Abaco Islands could also cause contamination of the water purification plants of those small islands of the Atlantic archipelago.
Hurricane Dorian is on its way to the coasts of Florida, United States, with a category 4 cyclone force of a maximum of 5.
