With sustained winds of 185 mph, Dorian was the strongest hurricane on record to strike the Bahamas since records began in 1851.
It was also the first Category 5 to make landfall on Grand Bahama Island, and at 185 mph was the strongest hurricane on record to hit Abaco Island.
What was even more stunning was its slow path across the Bahamas: According to Colorado State University meteorologist Phil Klotzbach, Dorian tracked only about 25 miles in 24 hours – the shortest distance tracked by an Atlantic major hurricane in a 24-hour period since Hurricane Betsy in 1965.
Weather Underground meteorologist Jeff Masters said that "portions of (Dorian's) eyewall lashed Great Abaco and Grand Bahama islands with Category 5 winds for a total of 22 hours before the great hurricane finally weakened to Category 4 strength.
"In records going back over a century, there are no cases where an Atlantic Category 5 hurricane has impacted a land area for as long as Dorian battered the Bahamas," Masters said.
