September 04, 2019 at 10:10 GMT +00:00 · Published

The US Coast Guard was in the Bahamas on Tuesday, in support of search and rescue operations in the wake of Hurricane Dorian.

Footage shows Coast Guard rescuers working alongside medics and nurses, as well as a Coast Guard aircraft flying through areas affected by the hurricane for damage assessment.

The Coast Guard said Monday that it has sent four MH-60 Jayhawk helicopters and health service technicians to the Bahamas.

Dorian, which lasted as a Category 5 hurricane for over 24 hours after reaching 185 miles an hour winds while battering the Bahamas, has been downgraded to a Category 2 storm on Tuesday morning, after since decreasing in wind strength.

At least seven people were reportedly killed during the storm, with authorities in the Bahamas fearing the death toll will rise.
