Monster Storm Dorian Slows to a Crawl Over the Bahamas

Monster Storm Dorian Slows to a Crawl Over the Bahamas”

Officials in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina have all declared states of emergency ahead of Dorian.

This satellite image obtained from NOAA/RAMMB, shows Hurricane Dorian as it approaches the Bahamas at 13:40 UTC on September 1, 2019.

The hurricane will then move "dangerously close" to Florida late tonight through Wednesday evening and then very close to the Georgia and SC coasts on Wednesday night and Thursday, the hurricane center said. In Florida, several surge warnings and hurricane watches have been canceled south of the Jupiter Inlet.

Some coastal areas are under a mandatory evacuation since the path of the storm is still uncertain. In Georgia, around 300,000 people living east of Interstate 95 have been told to evacuate.

"We don't know where it's going to hit but we have an idea, probably a little bit different than the original course", Trump said. We were told they would evacuate and they didn't.

Meanwhile, the Bahamas continue to be under attack.

"We simply can not get to you", he told Bahamas radio station ZNS, which shared reports from callers who said some people were stuck on roofs and in attics.

Dorian is weakening in part because it has exhausted its supply of warm ocean water by sitting over the same spot for days, Truchelut said. At 5 a.m., a Tropical Storm Warning was issued north of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida to Altamaha Sound in Georgia as the major cyclone was spinning 105 miles east of West Palm Beach. Castaway is south of the more significant weather. "First, the utter devastation and humanitarian crisis in parts of the Bahamas and, second, the surprise major impacts in the Southeast and Northeast U.S".

Areas along Florida's coast could see 2 to 4 inches with isolated areas getting 6 inches.

American Airlines said airport operations had been suspended at seven airports in Florida and the Bahamas, and a travel alert issued for more than 20 airports including in Georgia, North Carolina and SC.

South Carolina

The hurricane center said that may not happen until Tuesday.

The current forecast predicts a close shave and near-miss for Florida.

The National Hurricane Center downgraded the storm to a Category 4 late Monday morning.

A statement issued by the Communications Ministry on Monday, notes that Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has been in touch with Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Minnis.

Bahamas radio station ZNS Bahamas reported that a mother and child on Grand Bahama had called to say they were sheltering in a closet and seeking help from police.

If the hurricane remains along the coast, coastal flooding erosion will be likely.

The Category 4 storm now is moving across Grand Bahama Island at just 1 miles per hour - and crews hoping to get a better assessment of the "catastrophic damage" reported in regions like the Abacos are still waiting for conditions to clear up, Foreign Minister Darren Henfield told state broadcaster ZNS.

In southern Florida's Port Saint Lucie - a low-income area where mobile home parks stood all-but emptied of their residents - Dan Peatle, 78, fled his retirement community to take shelter in a hotel. The terminal, which is able to handle oil supertankers, has a capacity of 26 million barrels of crude, gasoline and diesel. He said the company's office in Abaco island was flattened.

Dorian will cause at least US$25 billion of insurance losses, according to analysts at UBS Group AG, the costliest of any natural disaster since 2017.

NextEra Energy Inc.'s Florida Power & Light utility has restored electricity service to roughly 60,000 customers as Dorian neared the coast, chief communications officer Dave Reuter told a Monday morning press conference.
