FGCU professor returns from the Bahamas after checking on family

Starting over after Hurricane Dorian.

The death toll continues to rise as crews search for survivors. The Bahamian government said it is now at 50 people.

Those who survived desperately want to escape. Thousands of people waited to board boats and planes, headed to Nassau or Florida over the weekend. However, some people do not want to leave.

A Southwest Florida professor who just came back from the Bahamas told Reporter Justin Kase her mother wants to stay.
