A woman in the Bahamas has begged for prayers in a Facebook Live video of Hurricane Dorian hitting her home in the Bahamas.

"My baby is only four months old, please," she cried.

"Please pray for us, please pray for us everyone, me and my baby, everyone who stayed in the apartment building, we stuck right here.”

“I’m begging you, pray for us.”

The Category 5 Hurricane Dorian first hit the Bahamas on Sunday and is en-route to the United States.

The storm, which has now been downgraded to a Category 4, continued through the Bahamas Monday as surging seawaters and ferocious winds sowed chaos in low-lying island communities, claiming at least one life.
