Hurricane Dorian leaves 'apocalyptic' damage in the Bahamas

Clip: 09/04/2019 | 7m 4s

The southeastern U.S. shoreline is watching Hurricane Dorian drive north, not far offshore. The storm’s winds have dropped to 105 miles per hour, still plenty powerful but much less severe than those that blasted the northern Bahamas earlier this week. John Yang reports and joins Judy Woodruff from Nassau with an update on a disaster whose scope of destruction is still coming into focus.
