KINGSTON, Jamaica — The final death toll from Hurricane Dorian in The Bahamas could be staggering as extra morticians and coolers to store bodies were being sent to the region to help authorities cope with the deadly impact.

Dorian slammed into northern Bahamas on Sunday, leaving a trail of immense destruction in Great Abaco Island and Grand Bahama.

Thousands have been left homeless, while the United Nations said at least 70,000 were in immediate need of aid.
