Print Friendly, PDF & Email

National Hurricane Center/NOAA’s 11 p.m. update has Hurricane Dorian bordering a Cat 3 storm, with winds up to 115 mph. The storm has become better organized with a clear eye, and while intensity may fluctuate, it’s predicted to weaken as the storm turns north northeast on Thursday evening and moves faster northeastward on Friday.

However, the wind span will expand. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles from the center, with tropical-storm-force winds outward up to 195 miles. Georgia is experiencing tropical-force winds currently, with Dorian approaching South Carolina in the next few hours. The center will veer toward the Carolinas but whether it makes landfall is still unclear.

Rainfall is still predicted to be 6 to 12 inches (isolated areas, 15 inches) with storm surge 4 to 7 feet. There is a high risk of flash flooding as well.
