The US on Sunday announced temporary flight restriction for Bahamian airspace in the wake of Hurricane Dorian that has killed over 40 people so far in the Bahamas.

"At the request of the Bahamian Government, the FAA (US Federal Aviation Administration) has issued a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) for US aircraft and pilots entering Bahamian airspace in Hurricane Dorian affected areas in order to reserve airspace for search and rescue and humanitarian assistance", the FAA said in a statement.
