Bahamas Official Reports `Disturbing' Storm Damage

NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) - Officials in the Bahamas say they expect extensive property damage on the first two small islands slammed by Hurricane Irene.

Officials say the storm's path poses the greatest threat to the country's smaller, less-populated islands. There are no immediate reports of major injuries or deaths on Acklins and Crooked islands.

The head of the National Emergency Management Agency in the Bahamas says he is getting what he calls disturbing initial reports.

Capt. Stephen Russell tells The Associated Press that at least two settlements have been devastated. Russell says an official there reports that 90 percent of the homes in the settlements have been severely damaged or destroyed.
