Florida Deputies Name Adorable Puppy Rescued from Flooded Car After Hurricane Dorian

Hurricane Dorian is, in fact, the second-strongest Atlantic hurricane since records began, with destructive winds of up to 165mph (270km/h).

The Bahamas has struggled for years with fighting the illegal drug trade.

The officer at the scene took possession of the package which a Melbourne police spokesperson described as "wrapped in a way that was consistent with narcotics".

Once the investigation is complete, the cocaine will be destroyed.

In Orlando - the largest nearby city - one kilogram of cocaine has a street value worth approximately $20,000 to $30,000 United States dollars ($27,000 to $40,000 CAD), police told NBC. On the forecast track, the center of Dorian will move near or over the coast of North Carolina during the next several hours.
