Hurricane Dorian Now A Category 3 And “Dangerously Close” To The Florida Coast

Hurricane Dorian has weakened to a Category 3 storm but continues to batter the Bahamas as it remains at a virtual standstill. The ferocious storm’s centre was about 48 kilometres northeast of Freeport, on the Grand Bahama Island earlier this morning. Despite the category downgrade the National Hurricane centre says Dorion is still seeing 193 kilometres per hour winds and is expected to move “dangerously close” to the Florida east coast late Tuesday through Wednesday evening. At least five people have died in the Bahamas as a result of hurricane Dorian, as it continues to unleash massive flooding across Grand Bahama island. The prime minister of the Bahamas calls the situation a “historic tragedy.” The death toll is expected to climb.
