CKTB - NEWS - Hurricane Dorian

At least 20 people were killed as Hurricane Dorian ravaged the Bahamas.

Experts believe the latest death toll still stands to rise as recovery efforts continue in the hardest hit areas of the islands.

Meanwhile, Dorian is now back to a Category 3 storm as the winds and rain lash the southeastern US seaboard.

Power has been knocked out for tens of thousands of people in South Carolina.

Canadians along the east coast are also told to prepare for the impacts of the hurricane as it heads to the Maritimes for this weekend.

Forecasters believe the storm will weaken to a Category 1 hurricane by the time it reaches Nova Scotia on Saturday.
