At least 50 people died in the hurricane which slammed into the northern Bahamas as a Category 5 storm while officials say they expect the number to rise significantly.
The death toll increased to 50 in the Bahamas, where Hurricane Dorian pummeled 320 km/h winds, according to a spokesman for the islands' National Emergency Management Agency.
The ship carrying the Haitians sank near Fowl Cay, 10 kilometers (six miles) off the coast of Marsh Harbour, Abaco.
