Hurricane Dorian Update

Hurricane Dorian is still moving west and is just about to cross onto the Bahama Islands.

Currently from the US National Hurricane Center:

9:30 AM EDT Sun Sep 1
Location: 26.5°N 76.6°W
Moving: W at 8 mph
Min pressure: 922 mb
Max sustained: 175 mph

That’s 282 Km/hr!

There is a video feed from Marsh Harbour Bahamas – how long it lasts is questionable though.

Movement of the storm while westerly at the moment is expected to take a northerly course over time unfortunately after languishing over the Bahamas. The change in course will send the storm north along the coast hopefully staying far enough off the coast to spare Florida the worst. The path of the storm could just as easily move more west and hit the Florida coast very hard. Fingers crossed for them.

The storm will cause havoc all along the southeastern US coast there is no doubt including and maybe especially North Carolina and even southern Virginia.
