After spending the majority of his career in South Florida, Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade knows all about the severity of hurricanes.
The retired guard sent his thoughts and prayers to those impacted by Hurricane Dorian in the northern Bahamas on Monday.
My family and i Prayers are going out to all the families impacted by hurricane Dorian 🙏🏾

Wade, 37, retired from the NBA after a prolific 16-year career back in April.
Although the former Finals MVP never went through a catastrophic storm during his stint with the Heat, the South Florida region has always been susceptible to major hurricanes.
While Miami appears to be away from the furious path of Hurricane Dorian, much of the southeastern coast of the United States is bracing for its effects over the next few days.
Meanwhile, the northern Bahamas has been significantly battered by Hurricane Dorian. In fact, the vast system is the strongest storm on record to hit the northwestern Bahamas, according to the National Hurricane Center.
