How dogs in the Bahamas survived Dorian

As residents across the Bahamas braced for Hurricane Dorian, the strongest storm in the island's history, one woman's preparations stood out. She opened her home to 97 dogs. "Seventy-nine of them are in my bedroom," said Chella Phillips on Facebook. "It has been insane. Poop and piss non stop, but at least they are respecting my bed and nobody has dared to jump on it."

As the dogs settled into her house, Phillips barricaded the outside. Neighbors and friends donated dog crates, which were helpful for "the scared ones and sick ones," she wrote. To calm the dogs, she had music playing in every room and air-conditioning was on high. Phillips says she does not mind the clean-up, as long as the dogs survive the hurricane.
