Florida Hurricane Warnings Issued For Dorian

Florida Hurricane Warnings Issued For Dorian”

Hurricane Dorian is now a "catastrophic Category 5" storm as it approaches the Bahamas in the Caribbean, according to a National Hurricane Center update today (Sept. 1).

There were indications that the slow-moving Dorian would veer sharply northeastward after passing the Bahamas and track up the east coast of Florida.

According to Rigby, memories of past hurricanes were still fresh - including 2005's historic storm Wilma, when it took weeks for water, food and electricity to be back to normal. "We will continue to work around the clock to prepare". But DeSantis warned that the storm's winds exceed those of 1992's Hurricane Andrew, which demolished the Miami suburb of Homestead, and last year's Hurricane Michael, which wiped out the small Florida Panhandle town of Mexico Beach. That storm did not make landfall at the strength.

Authorities have evacuated people from the coasts of Georgia and Carolina, in the United States, after the National Hurricane Center said water levels could rise as much as 23ft above typical levels due to storm surges. Global News meteorologist Anthony Farnell said in his Sunday afternoon forecast.

The forecast path of the storm shows Dorian staying just offshore of Florida's east coast and bring it past Jacksonville about 115 miles offshore next Wednesday around noon. Forecasters say that distance could expand.

Mandatory evacuation orders were issued for parts of Palm Beach and Martin Counties. Therefore, a tropical storm watch is in effect for Broward County. A hurricane watch is in effect from north of Deerfield Beach to Jupiter Inlet and from the Volusia/Brevard county line to the mouth of the St. Mary's River. Twelve counties in Georgia are also in a state of emergency.

Even though it's expected to stay well offshore of South Florida, there is a possibility that winds over 40 miles per hour could affect Broward County, so a tropical storm watch is in effect for the area.

Several highways will be suspending tolls to ease the evacuation efforts, the governor said.

The winds in South Florida will increase through the day tomorrow (Monday) and are expected to peak late Monday into early Tuesday morning. Hurricane force winds are becoming less likely and should stay offshore.

Coastal areas could get 3 to 6 inches of rain, with 10 inches in some places.

Here's a look at destructive Hurricane Dorian raking across the Bahamas, late Sunday. Some fluctuations in intensity are likely, but Dorian is expected to remain a powerful hurricane during the next few days.

Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., advised Floridians in the pathway of Hurricane Dorian to "heed the warning" and be prepared in anticipation of the storm's imminent arrival.

Coastal flood advisory through the weekend for potential minor flooding during high tides. Evacuations in coastal SC will begin Monday.
