HEADLINE: Hurricane Dorian Even Stronger

HEADLINE: Hurricane Dorian Even Stronger”

Hurricane Dorian has shut down most major resorts in the Bahamas and forced authorities to evacuate much of the northern shore and low-lying islands.

That's because on Friday, the National Weather Center forecast Hurricane Dorian would make landfall early Tuesday morning around Palm Beach and Martin counties.

In its direct, immediate path the monster storm was headed for the Bahamian northwestern islands of Grand Bahama and Abaco. "Time is not on our side".

He warned that areas such as at the St. John's River could experience flooding because of heavy rains and high winds, as happened after Hurricane Matthew, the Category 5 hurricane that paralleled Florida's east coast when much of Jacksonville faced high water. By 11 p.m., the pressure dropped even more to 948 MBs. She felt well prepared and less anxious, given the latest forecasts, but still was uneasy given the storm's unpredictability. The storm is then expected to turn north and drag destruction up Florida into Georgia and beyond.

Two thousand National Guard troops will have been mobilised for the hurricane by the end of Friday, with 2,000 more joining them on Saturday, Florida National Guard Major General James Eifert said.

While residents in the southeastern states are preparing for Hurricane Dorian, volunteers with the Northeast Ohio American Red Cross are preparing to deploy to Florida and other areas impacted by the storm.

The center also stressed that Dorian could still hit Florida, where millions of people have been in the storm's changing potential path.

If it stays far enough offshore, Dorian could spare Florida its most destructive winds, but drop plenty of rain. As it spins northwestward it is expected to get stronger, possibly up to 150 miles per hour.

"What we saw in Michael - up in the pan handle - is the number of people that lost their lives because they said, 'oh, it's only a category 1 or a category 2.'" That Hurricane, Scott said, got "bigger fast" and produced a 9-ft. storm surge.

Others that have hit the Florida coastline over the Labor Day holiday include Hurricane David in 1979, Elena in 1985, Frances in 2004 and Hermine in 2016.

Werner said he didn't want his 88-year-old mother to be sitting in the heat if she loses power.

Authorities in the Bahamas made a last-minute plea to residents and tourists on Saturday to seek shelter as time ran out before powerful Hurricane Dorian hits, warning those that refused to move that their lives were at risk.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster declared a state of emergency Saturday, mobilizing state resources to prepare for the possibility the storm could still make landfall.

Meanwhile, the forecast track of Hurricane Dorian continues to show a landfall in eastern Florida is no longer a guarantee.

"I am happy that that the storm is curving", Carter told CNN in Vero Beach.

Carmen Segura, 32, said she had installed hurricane shutters at her house in Miami, bought extra gas and secured water and food for at least three days.

She smiled thinking about how good the chicken would be now without a hurricane.

Only one in five Florida nursing homes plans to rely on deliveries of temporary generators to keep their air conditioners running if Dorian knocks out power, a state agency said on Friday, short of the standard set by a law passed after a dozen people died in a sweltering nursing home after 2017's Hurricane Irma.
