Hurricane Dorian has caused mass destruction this week. As the catastrophic storm passed over the helpless Bahamas, it took the lives of countless residents.
One of those who tragically lost their lives in the natural disaster was retired legal secretary and proofreader, Lynn Armstrong. The British native had lived in Freeport, the main city on Grand Bahama, with her devoted husband, Howard, for many years.
Whilst initially feeling hopeful that they would not be too badly affected by the Hurricane, the elderly couple ended up fighting for their lives. Howard, a Crab Fisherman, helplessly had to watch as his wife drowned in the freezing waters that engulfed them.
The tragedy of Lynn’s passing continues to cause heartbreak as it has just been unearthed that her step-daughter, Meghann Gaines, only came to learn about her death when she was sent a harrowing video of her father speaking about the truly awful circumstances of her final moments to a cable news reporter.
