4 minute read | September.18.2019

Hurricane Dorian devastated the Bahamas and southeastern United States in late August and early September, and the governors of Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Puerto Rico authorized the activation of state National Guard forces for response efforts. In addition, the Rhode Island National Guard mobilized as part of a State Partnership Program with the Bahamas.
