Dorian regains strength as a CAT 3, before hitting the Carolinas

September 5, 2019 10:57 AM |

Hurricane Dorian
Hurricane Dorian which was earlier forecast to hit the southern US state of Florida has now recurved it track and might completely miss the region.

Although the hurricane’s effect will not be completely evaded as it might pass just a 100 kms away from the Florida coast. Lashing rains and strong winds will still continue to blow along the coastline.

At present, the hurricane is in CAT 3 status while heading for the Carolinas instead. Both South and North Carolina are set to be affected by Dorian as the hurricane continues in its Northwards track.

At present Dorian’s track looks a little like this-

In the last 24 hours, Hurricane Dorian struck the islands of The Bahamas as a CAT 5 storm, bringing mass destruction to life and property. Winds with a speed of 300 kmph blew over the region which brought down almost half of the houses in the country with it. Following this the Hurricane slowed down into a CAT 2 before reemerging as a CAT 3.

At present a lot of uncertainty revolves around the hurricane’s intensity as well as track. Yet, evacuations are already in place in the Carolinas and people are put on alert before it’s too late to act.
