BREAKING: Catastrophic Hurricane Dorian hits US

According to official report by  National Hurricane Center,  Hurricane Dorian has now strengthened into a monster Category 5 storm, packing maximum sustained winds of 160 mph, the National Hurricane Center says. Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina are all still in the potential for a landfall from this catastrophic storm over the next few days.

The devastating Hurricane Dorian now has maximum sustained winds of 160 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center. This would put the storm in the highest category on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

Dorian will be capable of catastrophic damage as it tracks towards the Bahamas today into tomorrow.

Fluctuations in intensity will likely continue over the next 24 hours, but Dorian is expected to remain a very intense hurricane.

NHC said the most severe weather of the hurricane, known as the eyewall, is about to hit Abaco islands in the Bahamas.

Landfall is possible in the islands of the North Bahamas as a Category 5 hurricane

Hurricane conditions arrive and continuously lash the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama

The storm’s forward movement likely slows to almost a crawl over North Bahama

Life-threatening storm surge, hurricane-force winds and very heavy rainfall will pound these northern islands

MONDAY

Dorian creeps toward Florida’s east coast

Hurricane conditions are likely for anyone within 30 miles from the storm’s center

Tropical-storm-force winds likely arrive along Florida coast

It continues to rain in the northwestern Bahamas, where up to 12 to 24 inches of rain is expected to fall, with isolated amounts of 30 inches

TUESDAY

Landfall is still a distinct possibility in Florida as some forecast models have shifted west again

The storm turns northward and moves up the coast of Florida or more likely offshore and along the coast

WEDNESDAY

The storm continues to produce hurricane-force winds as it heads north with some more weakening forecast.
