Hurricane Dorian still on track to damage Southeast coast
Dorian not going away
Dorian, still a Category 2 hurricane, spared south Florida from a direct hit. However, Dorian won’t be as nice to areas from northeast Florida to the Outer Banks of North Carolina the rest of the week as it gets dangerously close to the coast. Places like Jacksonville, Savannah, Charleston, Wilmington, and Nags Head will likely flood, to varying degrees, due to storm surge. Wind damage is a good bet too, especially for coastal areas of the Carolinas. Dorian also may spin up isolated tornadoes and waterspouts along the Southeastern coast. According to the article from the freightwaves.com and its author Nick Austin
As of 11:00 a.m. EDT today, Sept. 4, Dorian is centered 90 miles east-southeast of Daytona Beach, FL, with maximum sustained winds of 105 mph. It’s been picking up forward speed, moving to the north-northwest at 9 mph. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has issued hurricane and tropical storm warnings from Sebastian Inlet in Florida to Wilmington and Surf City, NC. The NHC also has posted storm surge warnings for these areas. Austin also wrote in his article.
