Kim Campbell apologizes for tweet 'rooting' for hurricane to hit Trump resort

Kim Campbell apologizes for tweet 'rooting' for hurricane to hit Trump resort”

Dorian may bring risky storm surge to coastal Georgia as well as rain and wind to inland Georgia and South Carolina, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp said Thursday.

The National Hurricane Center expects the storm to strengthen into a potentially catastrophic Category 4, with winds of nearly 225 km/h due.

Democrats railed against Trump even before the storm makes landfall over the state - accusing him of playing racial politics and blasting his decision to redirect funding from the nation's primary disaster relief agency toward border enforcement operations.

"I think there's a pretty high degree of certainty that this is going to be a major hurricane", Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said in a news conference from the state emergency operations center in Tallahassee.

The storm's maximum sustained wind speed was clocked at almost 175 kilometres per hour on Friday morning. Tropical storm winds could be felt in Florida as soon as Saturday evening. There was concern it could slow from its current 12-mph (9-kph) march across the map, giving it more time to intensify.

The National Hurricane Centre have said winds were expected to reach 130mph (210km/h) over the weekend.

"Not every path of the storm has the same probability but you've got to be prepared for that". "This rainfall may cause life-threatening flash floods", NHC forecasters said.

Mar-a-Lago is a busy Florida resort, located in Palm Beach and owned by U.S. President Donald Trump.

In a video posted this morning, Trump said Dorian initially appeared to be a small storm but has grown quickly over the past day.

Forecasters warned, too, that the storm's slow movement could subject the state to a drawn-out pummeling from wind, storm surge and heavy rain.

Recent NHC weather models show Dorian smacking into the center of Florida.

Local residents fill sandbags to protect their homes ahead of the arrival of Hurricane Dorian in Kissimmee, Florida, U.S. August 30, 2019.

Dorian could churn across dozens of launchpads owned by NASA, the U.S. Air Force and companies such as Elon Musk's SpaceX and Jeff Bezos's Blue Origin.

Feeding on the warm waters in the open ocean, Dorian steamed toward the USA after rolling through the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, where it inflicted less damage than feared but was blamed for at least one death.

DeSantis acknowledged fuel shortages across the state as residents formed long lines at petrol stations, supermarkets and hardware stores.
