Hurricane Dorian brought 'extreme destruction' to the Bahamas today as the Category 5 storm crawled over the islands, moving westwards at just 1mph, while the U.S. southeast coast braces for impact.

Bringing gusts of 225mph and up to 30 inches of rainfall, the hurricane wrecked 13,000 homes, tore down power lines and left Grand Bahama International Airport in Freeport under five feet of water on Monday morning.

A seven-year-old boy is believed to have drowned and today the Bahamian government highlighted chilling reports of bodies floating in the wreckage.

The island of Grand Bahama was hit the hardest today as Dorian almost came to a stop overhead. Experts have also warned of a possible storm surge that could send destructive waves crashing into the coast.

Dorian is the second-strongest Atlantic storm on record, and the joint-strongest ever to make landfall, after it barreled into the Bahamas with wind speeds of 185mph on Sunday.

The storm weakened slightly today but remained a Category 4 hurricane, the second-highest level, with sustained speeds of 155mph on Monday morning.
