As Hurricane Dorian crawls toward the southeast coast of the United States, strong winds and heavy rain begin to pick up at Jensen Beach in Florida, Tuesday, September 3.
Hurricane Dorian had battered Grand Bahama Island since making landfall Sunday.
Dorian, packing sustained winds of 175 kilometers an hour with higher gusts, was downgraded Tuesday to a Category 2 storm, diminished from when it first slammed into the Bahamas as a Category 5 storm and stalled over the popular vacation mecca. At the same time, however, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said the storm is growing larger, with hurricane-force winds extending nearly 100 kilometers from the storm’s center.
Forecasters continued to describe Dorian as “extremely dangerous” as it moved northwest toward the Florida coast at 4 kilometers an hour. Forecasters predicted Dorian would advance “slightly faster” later Tuesday before turning northward along the country’s eastern seaboard by Wednesday night.
