REUTERS:- The howling west flank of Hurricane Dorian soaked the Carolinas on Thursday (September 5), flooding coastal towns, whipping up tornadoes and cutting power to hundreds of thousands of people a couple of days after it reduced parts of the Bahamas to rubble.

Dorian whipped up at least three tornadoes in the region, officials said. Video shared with Reuters showed one of the tornados believed to cause damage to scores of trailers at a campground in Emerald Isle in North Carolina.

Local media reported that no one was injured from that tornado. In the Carolinas alone, more than 900,000 people had been ordered to evacuate their homes. It was unclear how many did so. Dorian’s eye was about 35 miles (60 km) southeast of Wilmington in North Carolina, with maximum sustained winds of 100 mph (160 kph), the Miami-based U.S. National Hurricane Center said in its 8 p.m. advisory.
