The UK has deployed a team of three humanitarian experts to the Bahamas to begin immediate work on assessing the damage following Dorian.
The team, who departed from London this morning, are expected to arrive in the region later today to help coordinate the relief effort.
Alok Sharma, the international development secretary, said:
“My thoughts are with everyone affected by this devastating hurricane which is causing widespread disruption.
“I have sent an initial team of experts to the Bahamas to help assess the damage and coordinate the UK’s response, including any potential use of military assets if required.
“The UK is a world leader in providing disaster relief, and it’s right that we support the people of the Bahamas in their time of need.”
