"When Archdeacon Keith Cartwright, archdeacon of the southern Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands, visited Haiti in the wake of the 2010 earthquake, he thought he would never see anything close to that level of devastation again. But recently, surveying the damage in his own diocese in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, he sees that catastrophe mirrored. 'Everything has been decimated', he says". "Classified as a Category 5 hurricane when it struck the islands of Grand Bahama and Abaco on Sept. 1 , Dorian was the one of the most powerful Caribbean storms on record". "St. John the Baptist Anglican Church in Marsh Harbour [Abaco] has 'two big holes in the roof', and was flooded with 10 feet (3 metres) of water, he adds; the parish hall was flooded after its rood was ripped off". "The storm was classified as a Category 2 storm when it struck Atlantic Canada, making landfall in Nova Scotia on Saturday, Sept. 7 ". "In Dartmouth, N.S., the 'City of Trees' ... the Rev. Kyle Wagner, rector at Christ Church, Dartmouth. Three massive trees fell on church property, one into the parish hall and another onto the building that houses the church's boiler and propane source". "The Rev. Cynthia Patterson, incumbent in the parish of the Magdalen Islands, which includes the parishes of Holy Trinity on Grosse-Ile and All Saints Memorial on Entry Island, says winds were so strong that Holy Trinity's bolted steel doors were blown open, and one blown off its hinges". "On Entry Island, the storm felled another church landmark: a huge lit cross that stood in front of All Saints Memorial. The cross was erected in 1988 in memory of five people who had drowned the previous year".
