'Extremely Dangerous' Dorian Becomes Strongest Hurricane in Modern History for the Bahamas

Hurricane Dorian Hits Bahamas. But What Is A Category 5 Storm

Hurricane Dorian Hits Bahamas. But What Is A Category 5 Storm

Remarkable photos from within the eye of Hurricane Dorian offer a glimpse of tranquillity as fears of destruction increase in the United States.

Authorities separately ordered mandatory evacuations in some vulnerable coastal areas of Florida and canceled more than 600 Labor Day flights across the United States as of September 1. Parts of Duval, St Johns and Nassau County are under mandatory evacuation. Exactly where (or if) it would hit the U.S. East Coast remained unclear Sunday.

He noted that some forecast models still bring Dorian close to or even onto the Florida peninsula. It shares this notoriety with the Labor Day hurricane of 1935, which doesn't have a name because storms at this time weren't named.

Dorian will then move "farther to the west during the next couple of days", flirting with a Florida landfall late Monday through Tuesday night before taking the anticipated turn to the north starting Tuesday and hugging the coast into the Carolinas into Thursday. Dorian's forecast track has shifted east since Friday, making a landfall in Florida less likely but not out of the question.

Residents of coastline areas are ordered to evacuate "as Georgia's network of roads and bridges providing access to our barrier islands may be rendered impassable, isolating residences and persons from access to essential public services", it said.

St. Lucie County authorities said they have already received a report of an attempted burglary at a vacated home, and Sheriff Ken Mascara warned would-be looters, "We are watching for this kind of activity". Isolated areas could see as much as 150 mm. Alabama's going to get a piece of it, it looks like, ' he told reporters on Sunday. Caitlin Brown said. She added that eight military helicopters are on standby.

NASA's Kennedy Space Center, in Cape Canaveral, Florida, has taken steps to safeguard itself against Hurricane Dorian. Global News meteorologist Anthony Farnell said in his Sunday afternoon forecast.

Several highways will be suspending tolls to ease the evacuation efforts, the governor said.

Georgia and SC likely could expect heavy rain and wind in the middle of the week, he said, with "some of watches and warnings eventually being put up for parts of the Southeast coast in the next day or so".

The NHC noted that while the projected consensus path has the storm, staying offshore, the three-day cone of uncertainty moved inland overnight to now include all of metro Orlando including Walt Disney World.

In October 2017, Trump claimed "nobody has ever heard of a (Category) 5 hitting land", and earlier this year, he again said he had never heard of a hurricane of that intensity.

Werner said he didn't want his 88-year-old mother to be sitting in the heat if she loses power.
