A new storm is threatening the Bahamas, just two weeks after Hurricane Dorian tore through part of the islands.

‘Tropical Depression Nine’ – which could turn into a tropical cyclone within two days – is already causing heavy rains and strong winds on the islands.

Around 1,300 people are missing after Dorian, while at least 15,000 are in need of shelter, food and medical care. Officials have warned that flooding from the fresh storm could hamper their rescue and relief efforts.
