Hurricane Dorian is strengthening and is now a Category 3 system. Further significant intensification is expected and it will likely track across the Bahamas and parts of Florida as a potentially devastating hurricane.

</center>Hurricane Dorian has, after a short pause, resumed strengthening late on August 30th – reaching peak sustained winds of 115 mph (185 km/h). It thus became a major category 3 hurricane, the first of the season.



Latest forecast track area / forecast cone for storm center by NWS National Hurricane Center indicates Dorian is expected to track nearly directly westwards, as a major hurricane, affecting the Bahamas on Sunday and possible landfall in south Florida on Monday. Some models suggest no landfall, but a track along the eastern coast of Florida towards the north. A hurricane watch is in effect for the Bahamas.

Hurricane Dorian Makes Landfall


Hurricane Dorian is the second with the highest wind speed of any hurricane anywhere in the Atlantic in the modern era since 1950 (It is tied with Wilma in 2005, Gilbert in 1988 and just behind Allan in 1980 that had 190 mph winds. It is also the strongest hurricane to ever hit the Bahamas. Locals have already started to upload apocalyptic aftermath videos on YouTube showing obliterated homes and vehicles trees uprooted and debarked and cars smashed like toys. All houses have their roofs blown off.
