    (From CNN's AnneClaire Stapleton) Numerous casualties have been reported on the Abaco Islands of the Bahamas following Hurricane Dorian.

    “From all accounts, we have received catastrophic damage” to Abaco, according to Darren Henfield, Bahamian Minister of Foreign Affairs. “We have reports of casualties. We have reports of bodies being seen. We cannot confirm those reports until we go out and see for ourselves."

    First responders are traveling to Abaco, where citizens have been told to remain indoors due to downed lamp posts, trees and power lines.

    "It is very dangerous to be outdoors if you don’t have to be outdoors," Henfield said. "We’re holding strong… We’re just asking you to continue to pray for us."
