The UK Ministry of Defence has released aerial images of the damage from Dorian on Great Abaco, in the Bahamas. They were taken from a Royal Navy Wildcat helicopter.

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. - Pollo Tropical joined forces with Chef José Andres. The Doral-based company announced a pledge to contribute to Hurricane Dorian relief efforts in the Bahamas with the help of customers.

For every Pollo Tropical Original Family Meal purchased at any of the 140 company-owned restaurants, the company will be donating a dollar to the chef's World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit organization providing food to Dorian survivors.  

The World Central Kitchen has been serving 30,000 meals a day in Nassau, Abaco and Grand Bahama, after the destructive Category 5 storm made landfall Sept. 1 in Elbow Cay. 

On Saturday, Tropical Storm Humberto suspended the United Nations World Food Program's distribution of meals in Grand Bahama. Services resumed in Abaco.
