College Campuses Close as Hurricane Dorian Threatens”

The prime minister of the Bahamas says the death toll from Hurricane Dorian has risen to seven and that more deaths are expected.

However, "devastating" hurricane conditions continued on Grand Bahama and are expected to continue through today.

"Tropical storm-force winds have been observed from Jacksonville to near Miami as the outer bands of Dorian track over Florida", AccuWeather said.

Dorian's punishing winds and torrential rain battered the islands of Abaco and Grand Bahamas, which have a combined population of about 70,000 and are known for their marinas, golf courses and all-inclusive resorts.

Dorian's winds may have decreased, but the storm was growing in size and still considered very risky.

In advance of Hurricane Dorian's landfall, schools along the US East Coast continue to prepare for the impact.

A turn to the north is forecast by Wednesday evening, followed by a turn to the north-northeast Thursday morning.

"The U.S. may be getting a little bit lucky with respect to Hurricane Dorian, but please don't let down your guard", Trump wrote on Twitter.

"Hurricane Dorian is a serious storm and current predictions indicate it may affect parts of Virginia", that state's governor, Ralph Northam.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster said Dorian could come within five miles of Charleston, and wallop eight counties with high winds and storm surges.

A storm surge watch is in effect from the Savannah River to Cape Lookout, N.C. Additional areas are under hurricane watches and warnings.

A tropical storm warning is in effect from north of Deerfield Beach, Fla., to Jupiter Inlet, Fla. and from north of Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., to Altamaha Sound, Ga. Dorian could bring an additional 2-4 inches to the northwestern Bahamas.
