Hurricane Dorian is a devastating storm currently stalled over the Bahamas, where it has wrought extreme damage, with at least five people dead and tens of thousands of properties decimated. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has monitored the storm on its path through the ocean, and it is expected to make an impact off the US east coast. The latest advisory from the weather forecasters warns it has now intensified. 

The latest advisory from the NOAA reads: “Dorian is moving toward the northwest near 2 mph (4 km/h), and a slightly faster motion toward the northwest or north-northwest is expected later today and tonight.

“A turn toward the north is forecast by Wednesday evening, followed by a turn toward the north-northeast Thursday morning.

“On this track, the core of extremely dangerous Hurricane Dorian will gradually move north of Grand Bahama Island through this evening.

“The hurricane will then move dangerously close to the Florida east coast late today through Wednesday evening, very near the Georgia and South Carolina coasts Wednesday night and Thursday, and near or over the North Carolina coast late Thursday and Thursday night.

“Data from reconnaissance aircraft indicate that the maximum sustained winds are near 110 mph (175 km/h) with higher gusts.

“Dorian is expected to remain a powerful hurricane during the next couple of days.”
