(August 29, 2019) – Hurricane Dorian is now centered in the western Atlantic Ocean.
Dorian will threaten parts of the Bahamas and the southeastern U.S. over Labor Day weekend.
The most likely scenario is a track near the Florida Peninsula late in the weekend, but exact details will change. Residents from the northern Gulf Coast to Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas should monitor forecasts closely.
Hurricane Dorian is forecast to intensify into a Category 4 hurricane and pose a major danger to the southeastern U.S., especially Florida, over Labor Day weekend. Dorian’s center is about 330 miles east of the southeastern Bahamas, with maximum sustained winds of 85 mph.
No hurricane watches or warnings are in effect at this time, but they will likely be issued for parts of the Bahamas and Florida in the next day or two.
