1. Saw a video clip of a woman in a one-story house on the outer edge of the island.

She was refusing to evacuate.

She's probably dead now.

2. I've been watching a lot of clips, I'm surprised that the death toll is only 5. I think it will...

go up drastically after the dust settles.

5. Topographic map shows elevation of Grand Bahama Island

This is a topographic map of Grand Bahama island.

Green: 0-15 ft
Yellow: 15-30 ft
Red: 30+ ft

Dorian's storm surge is estimated at 18-23 ft, which would submerge everything in green and significant parts of the yellow. Hopefully most people managed to move to safe locations.
