Extremely Dangerous Dorian Continues to East Coast as Cat 4 / 5 Hurricane

Dorian officially has sustained winds of 150 mph at the 11 pm Saturday night advisory, however evidence indicates higher winds and thus a Category 5 hurricane. Dorian continues to be an extremely impressive and powerful hurricane. The overall cone of uncertainty has hardly shifted. The coastlines of FL, GA, SC, NC, and now VA are within the cone. The Bahamas are about to get hit very hard, especially Abaco Island. Winds there could gust in excess of 180 mph!
