DORIAN UPDATE: Hurricane Dorian projected to arrive Thursday morning 12 miles off our coast

The NOAA’s 11 a.m. report shows Hurricane Dorian will impact NC in the next 36 to 48 hours, 12 miles off the coast. Hurricane-force winds are reaching 70 miles outward from the center and tropical-force winds 175 miles outward from the center. Winds have increased from previous reports; Wilmington and surrounding areas are expected to see 65-110mph gusts, according to NWS Wilmington. Tropical storm-force winds will pick up Thursday morning, with peak hurricane-force winds in effect Thursday evening through Friday, 11 a.m.

The storm surge is now extended to the NC/Virginia border and has increased from previous reports of 1 to 3 feet upward of 4 to 7 feet, especially in barrier island areas and if it corresponds with high tide. The area is forecasted to receive 5 to 10 inches of rain, with some areas receiving upward of 15 inches. Yet, this will not be the rain event from Hurricane Florence.

Folks should be prepared for isolated tornado warnings as well.
