Trump Speaks With Governors About Hurricane Dorian

Trump Speaks With Governors About Hurricane Dorian”

Unsure where Hurricane Dorian is going to land over Labor Day weekend, many Florida residents faced a sense of helplessness as the storm approaches. Gov. Ron DeSantis said that if people were told to evacuate now and Dorian changed course, they could find themselves heading into the storm - something that happened during previous hurricanes. Add Hurricane Dorian as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Hurricane Dorian news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

"Our teams are monitoring the situation and preparing to send an emergency response team if needed", IsraAID said. "As it increases strength, this storm has the potential to severely damage homes, businesses and buildings, which is why all Floridians should remain vigilant. Do not wait until it is too late to make a plan". It was moving northwest at an ever-slower 10 miles per hour (17 kph).

Satellite footage from early Friday shows Hurricane Dorian north of Turks and Caicos.

On Friday morning, Dorian was a category 2 hurricane located north-east of the Bahamas, with maximum sustained winds of 110mph. Spokesmen for Lime, Jump, Lyft and Bird said they are monitoring Dorian's path and heeding safety guidance.

It's growing in intensity, but some of the more reliable computer models predicted a turn northward that would have Dorian hug the coast, the National Hurricane Center said. It strengthened into a Category 4 hurricane, and there were fears it could prove to be the most powerful hurricane to hit Florida's east coast in almost 30 years. The Hurricane Center says more strengthening is forecast and Dorian is expected to become a major hurricane later in the day.

In Florida, the governor urged nursing homes to take precautions to prevent tragedies like the one during Hurricane Irma two years ago, when the storm knocked out the air conditioning at a facility in Hollywood and 12 patients died in the sweltering heat.

Dorian on Wednesday slashed through the Caribbean, delivering more than half a foot of rain, but it largely missed Puerto Rico, parts of which still haven't recovered from Hurricane Maria in 2017. "All the determinations made in the last days were a real life exercise".
