Dorian now a category 2 hurricane, top winds at 105 miles per hour

Dorian now a category 2 hurricane, top winds at 105 miles per hour”

His trip - slated to mark the 80th anniversary of the beginning of World War II - will be rescheduled, he said.

"Our highest priority is the safety and security of the people in the path of the hurricane", he told reporters in the White House Rose Garden. "And I will be rescheduling my trip to Poland in the near future", Trump said.

Mr. Trump said he offered his best wishes to Polish President Andrzej Duda and will reschedule his visit.

Dorian was a Category 2 storm early on Friday with winds of 105 miles per hour and its 12 miles per hour (9 kph) trajectory could slow down allowing it to crawl across the warm coastal waters, a recipe for storm fuel. Trump also says the federal government is providing resources before Hurricane Dorian hits Florida.

Florida's governor Ron DeSantis made the decision as the state prepares for the approaching hurricane by cancelling some commercial flights and handing out sand bags to residents. "Have your plan and make those preparations right now".

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp declared a state of emergency in 12 counties to assist with storm readiness, response and recovery.

"The biggest concern will be Dorian's slow motion when it is near Florida, placing some areas of the state at an increasing risk of a prolonged, drawn-out event of strong winds, risky storm surge, and heavy rainfall", the centre said. He said the storm could be comparable to Hurricane Andrew, which devastated South Florida in 1992.

"The risk of devastating hurricane-force winds along the Florida east coast and peninsula late this weekend and early next week continues to increase", the NHC warned. There were lines at some gasoline stations as drivers filled up their tanks.

They added, "Ticket holders will be receiving an email from Ticketmaster with more information".

The storm is forecast to become a major hurricane on Friday and possibly hit Florida's east coast early next week.

Mr. Trump tweeted about the storm earlier in the week, though mainly to relitigate fights over his response to Maria, the amount of federal aid that Puerto Rico received and corruption scandals in the USA territory.

In Puerto Rico, the new governor, Wanda Vazquez, gave the all-clear, but there was no let-up in the political storm involving Trump and Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of San Juan, the island's capital.
