Hurricane Dorian, which left 20 dead in the Bahamas, has left devastation in its wake.

Homes were wiped out, and in some cases, entire neighborhoods were mashed into rubble.

The only international airport on the island of Grand Bahama has been ripped apart. “After two days of trying, we’re finally able to get into the Freeport airport,” CNN’s Patrick Oppmann said from the scene Wednesday.”It’s gone. … The level of devastation is actually breathtaking. There are no walls left at the airport. The ceiling has come crashing.”

The airport’s obliteration deals a crushing blow for residents who desperately need medical evacuations or emergency aid. Between Grand Bahama and the Abacos, about 60,000 people may be in dire need of food relief, the World Food Program said.
