Nearly two weeks after Hurricane Dorian ravaged the Bahamas, the government said Thursday some 2,500 people are still missing.

The official death toll hit 50 on Monday as relief efforts continued. A majority of the bodies have been found on Abaco, which suffered some of the worst damage from the category 5 hurricane that hit Sept. 1.

Bahamas' National Emergency Management Agency spokesman Carl Smith emphasized the current list is preliminary and missing persons reports are still pouring in. He also explained the names provided have not been confirmed against the Bahamas’ official records or evacuee lists.

“As we are able to cross-reference our data sets, we will be able to inform family members and reunite survivors with loved ones,” Smith told the press Wednesday.

Bahamas was bracing for yet another tropical storm.

The National Hurricane Center has been tracking a storm front in the Caribbean that’s forecast to be moving westward. While early forecasts gave the storm low chances of forming into a cyclone, those have increased dramatically. As of Thursday morning, the NHC gave the storm front a 70% chance of forming into a cyclone within 48 hours.
