Hurricane Dorian was the most powerful hurricane on record to ever strike the Bahamas. The cyclone began on August 19th as a tropical disturbance and was upgraded to a depression and then a tropical storm on the 24th; it was designated a hurricane on August 28th. In addition to being the most powerful storm to ever strike the Bahamas, Dorian tied with Gilbert (1988) and Wilma (2005) for the 2nd strongest maximum sustained winds (185 mph) in the Atlantic Basin since 1950.
