home Named Storm Dorian – 2019: UPDATE Sept. 01 @ 5:00 AM EDT
Hurricane Dorian has slowed it’s forward progress due to a weakening of the mid level steering current in the Atlantic. As of 5 AM EDT, Sept. 01, Dorian is a 150 MPH Cat 4 Hurricane that is starting to batter the northern Bahamas. As of 5 AM Sunday, the National Hurricane Center has projected that the hurricane’s eye will not make a direct landfall in Florida, but curve to the north, remain as a major hurricane for several days, weaken slightly and follow the southeast COAST of the US toward Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina over the next 6 to 8 days. We must also mention that east coastal Florida and southeast coastal Georgia and the Carolinas remain in the cone of probability for actual landfall. This NHC projection may change several times in the upcoming days.
Persons in east coastal areas from Miami, Florida, to Atlantic Beach, North Carolina are being advised to monitor this situation carefully and if MANDATORY Evacuation orders are issued, to follow those orders.
