Hurricane Dorian Update

Date: September 4, 2019

Hurricane Dorian, downgraded to a Category 2 hurricane, is projected to approach the Florida’s central coast on its northerly track. The hurricane’s forward speed of approximately six (6) miles per hour, followed a course projected to parallel the east coast of the U.S. creating the possibility of landfall in either Georgia or the Carolinas. While Dorian’s overall power has diminished somewhat, its wind field has grown with tropical storm-force winds extending out to 175 miles from the hurricane’s core. As of this evenings update, the winds were blowing up to sixty (60) miles from the center with wind on the northern end of Dorian’s eye at 74 mph with gusts up to 90 mph.

The governors or South Carolina and Georgia have ordered at least one million people to evacuate the coasts of their states beginning last night.  These are mandatory evacuation orders.  The state of North Carolina is prepared to take the storm seriously
