check out the post right here ALERT: try this website Named Storm Dorian has changed it’s northerly track slightly and will be moving through the open waters between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic over the next 18 hours. This means that there will be little or no interaction with the mountains of Hispaniola to lessen the intensity and the wind shear in the Bahamas that could keep this from intensifying has lessened in the past 12 hours . Most storm modeling agencies are seeing a Cat One or Cat Two Hurricane landfalling initially along the east coast of Florida on Sunday – with a probability cone currently from Savannah, Georgia to Miami, Florida. The storm could possibly cross Florida and enter the Gulf of Mexico where additional strengthening could take place.
All persons in Florida, southern Georgia and coastal areas of the Gulf of Mexico should be monitoring this storm carefully and should be making preparations.
ALSO, Named Storm Erin formed from a tropical depression well off the US southeast coast. Tropical Storm Erin will remain off shore as it starts to track north-northeast and will not be directly affecting the East Coast of the US except for increased high surf and gusty winds. This will be our only mention of Named Storm Erin.
