Hurricane Dorian: more than 23 members of Sidney Poitiers family missing
More than 23 of Sidney Poitier’s family members are feared missing in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, the actor’s nephew as said. Jeffrey Poitier,66, said that they were still waiting for news from the relatives, including his sister Barbara and his adult children in Freeport, Bahamas. The family is one of hundreds desperately scrabbling to locate their loved ones a week after the category 5 hurricane wreaked devastation across the islands.   In some cases entire families were missing. "We still couldn't find any, nor have we heard from them," Mr Poitier said late last week. "We are still looking for and waiting for them to appear soon. It has us all worried. We are trying to reach out to them using every means available to us but we are not hearing anything. We are deeply worried." More than 500 Bahamians belong to the extended family of Sidney Poitier, the acclaimed actor who was born in Miami to Bahamian parents and who grew up in the Bahamas. A perfect storm | How climate change has made Hurricane Dorian worse Up to 70,000 people have been left homeless and are in need of life-saving assistance, while Great Abaco is said to be virtually uninhabitable, with bodies piled up and witnesses saying there is a 'smell of death' as corpses float in the water.  The official death toll last night stood at 43 - 35 in the Abaco Islands and eight in Grand Bahama – but Prime Minister Hubert Minnis warned that it was likely to climb "significantly”. The scramble to escape the worst-hit islands continued yesterday as some residents complained that their Government was nowhere to be seen. The Ministry of Defence this weekend announced that it would be sending a second Royal Navy ship, HMS Protector, to assist the disaster relief efforts which will set sail from Bermuda today (MONDAY). The team from RFA Mounts Bay, which is stationed in the Caribbean throughout hurricane season, were some of the first responders on the ground after Dorian passed. Commanding Officer, Captain Rob Anders, said: "Certainly the teams on the ground were very, very shocked. They say that the devastation is severe and in many cases the worst that they have seen." As well as shelter kits, food and water they have deployed heavy plant equipment to help clear roads and teams have been staying on the ground to assist the locals. Captain Anders told the Telegraph: “It is safe to say we have been quite busy.” A loosely coordinated armada of passenger planes, helicopters and both private and government boats and ships - including redirected cruise liners - converged on the Abacos to help with evacuations, both to Nassau and to the US mainland. The Coast Guard said all Bahamian ports had now reopened and it had deployed nine cutters to the islands. Six of its MH-60 Jayhawk helicopters had so far rescued 290 people. And more than 260 Abacos residents arrived Friday in Nassau on a government-chartered ferry, part of the first wave of people to be evacuated off the archipelago's most decimated islands.

Chamika Durosier, who was waiting at the airport to escape on Saturday, said: “"People have no food. People have no water, and it's not right. They should have been gone. "Dead bodies are still around and it's not sanitary." Even though Dorian lost some of its ferocity by the time it reached the North American mainland, the eastern seaboard was pummelled by powerful winds and heavy rain. North Carolina was the worst hit state with the US with the Outer Banks taking a battering from Dorian, even though it had weakened to a category 1 storm.

Roy Cooper, the state’s governor, said that 45,000 people were left without power and 200 people sought refuge in shelters. Dorian gathered strength again as it churned northward, hitting eastern Canada with renewed ferocity. The province of Nova Scotia was particularly badly hit as the wind brought down trees and power lines, leaving more than 450,000 homes without electricity. In the city of Halifax Dorian ripped roofs off apartment blocks and toppled a massive construction crane. There were also reports of flooding with the Canadian Hurricane Centre, saying some places had six inches of rain. Around 700 troops were used to help the authorities evacuate people living in flooded areas, restore electricity and clear roads.

Rudy Giuliani screams at Piers Morgan in insane TV interview: 'What happened to you, Rudy?'
Jun 04, 2020
Rudy Giuliani just made an appearance on Good Morning Britain with Piers Morgan, and to say it went off the rails would be an understatement. President Trump's personal lawyer participated in what turned out to be a completely bonkers interview on the show on Thursday, which started somewhat normally only to get heated as Morgan grilled Giuliani on Trump tweeting that "when the looting starts, the shooting starts." Giuliani claimed Trump didn't quote a "nutty, horrible racist" on "purpose," but Morgan wasn't buying it, repeatedly calling Giuliani out and asking him why Trump is using "inflammatory language" on Twitter. After many minutes going back and forth on this, the interview finally went fully out of control as Giuliani screamed over Morgan's news coverage and the two traded insults, with Giuliani blasting Morgan as a "liar" and a "failed journalist" after Morgan asked him, "What happened to you, Rudy?" Morgan proceeded to label Giuliani "deranged," "unhinged," and "completely barking mad." As if the whole thing wasn't chaotic enough, they then spent the end of the interview litigating whether Giuliani dropped an F-bomb during the conversation; Giuliani claimed he didn't say live on the air that Morgan "f--ed up," but considering a bleep was added to the Twitter clip posted by Good Morning Britain, the network obviously wasn't convinced. Watch just a small piece of the wild journey below, with more on YouTube.
