As Hurricane Dorian churns ominously near the southeast USA coast after ravaging the Bahamas with wind, pounding rain and flooding, the storm's big size can be seen in new images released by NASA.

North and SC are braced for the brunt of the storm next to slam into the coast there, after brushing past Georgia and north-east Florida.

Dorian, still a category 2 hurricane, is expected to bring unsafe storm surges, with the threat of flooding, very high winds and torrential rain to the Carolinas.

Floridians showed up in droves on Tuesday to give cans of food, bottles of water and boxes of diapers to members of two historically black churches, whose volunteers were sorting them before they were to be flown to the devastated islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama.

The International Space Station flew over Dorian on September 2 and astronaut Nick Hague snapped this stunning image of the hurricane's eye. Prime Minister Hubert Minnis has described the hurricane as a "historic tragedy" for the northern Bahamas that has damaged or destroyed homes, businesses and infrastructure. It's expected to bring "life-threatening" storm surge and strong winds to the eastern coast of Florida, as well as the coasts of Georgia and the Carolinas.

Part of the Abaco Islands were damaged by Hurricane Dorian, as seen on Tuesday in the Bahamas.

At least seven deaths have been reported in the Bahamas from Dorian, with the full scope of the disaster still unknown. She also said that her representative on the island had warned her that there are "a lot more" people dead.

Waffle House CEO Walt Ehmer explains the Waffle House index used by FEMA to track hurricane damages and his restaurants efforts to feed people despite impending storms. That toll is feared to rise as recovery efforts get underway.

FREEPORT, Bahamas- A day after the most powerful hurricane on record ever to hit the Bahamas finished battering the islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama, Freeport's Grand Bahama International Airport lay in tatters Wednesday.
