HURRICANE DORIAN UPDATES AS OF 9/3 5:00AM
The National Hurricane Center’s 5 a.m. ET update on Dorian had four key messages:
- Devastating winds and storm surges will continue for several more hours in Grand Bahama, as the storm remains stuck over the island. It’s budged just a few miles in the past hours.
- Life-threatening storm surges are expected alongside some of Florida’s east coasts, and along the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina — regardless of where Dorian’s center moves next.
- The risk of hurricane-force winds along North Carolina’s coast is increasing.
- The flash flood threat will increase along Florida during the course of Tuesday, and will spread up the southeast and mid-Atlantic coast for the rest of the week.
