JACKSONVILLE. FL., (Reuters) – Hurricane Dorian spun west today, putting Georgia and the Carolinas in the path of a possible landfall as well as Florida, where some beaches were all but deserted on the holiday weekend as visitors braced for the dangerous category 4 storm.

The Miami-based National Hurricane Center said there had been a “notable change” since Friday night, with the latest forecasts showing the eye of the storm could veer north and stay out at sea.

 

But it warned that its course remained unpredictable. Dorian still poses a threat to millions of people, as well as holiday attractions such as Walt Disney World, the NASA launchpads along the Space Coast, and even President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.

The NHC said Dorian was packing maximum sustained winds of 150 mph (240 kph) and was expected to pass north of the southeastern and central Bahamas on Sunday and be near Florida’s east coast late Monday through Tuesday.

Of immediate concern were Bahamas tourist hotspots Great Abaco and Grand Bahamas, where up to two days of hurricane-force winds were set to start on Sunday as Dorian slowed to a 2 mph (3.2 kph) crawl.

“This is a very dangerous situation for the Bahamas,” NHC Director Ken Graham said in a Facebook Live video.

After so much focus on a possible Florida landfall, Graham said other southeast U.S. states now had to be on alert.

 

“Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina have got to pay attention as well,” he said.

The governors of Florida, Georgia and North Carolina have all declared states of emergency.

On Florida’s east coast, popular surfing spot Cocoa Beach was quiet as tourists stayed away, while locals worked on putting up hurricane shutters and buying supplies ranging from water to power generators.

“It’s pretty slow, there’s not many people on the beach,” said Alex Hendricks, a saleswoman at the Cocoa Beach Surf Company.

In the Bahamas, most tourists who planned to leave had already gone after Freeport’s international airport was scheduled to shut down at 10 p.m. on Friday.

 

The NHC urged Florida residents to remain on alert.

“It should be noted that the new forecast track does not preclude Dorian making landfall on the Florida coast, as large portions of the coast remain in the track cone of uncertainty,” the center cautioned on Saturday.

Trump said South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia could all be hit harder by the storm than had been previously expected.

“It’s moving around and very hard to predict, except that it is one of the biggest and strongest (and really wide) that we have seen in decades. Be safe!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Dorian current speed is at 175 mph with barometric pressure at 922mb. I hope it doesn't but that is a killer monster getting ready to attack the Bahamas. In about three hours or so, we will see what 175 mph coupled with 922mb can do. Even Andrew wasn't that strong.

 Nice, maybe some God need to teach him a lesson about environmental problems and I do not doubt most of the funds for disaster relief would go toward it because of his dumbass plan to hold the next G7 summit there.

Let's wish everyone to be safe from Dorian. One of your Canadian, former somebody says the same about Trump and still, she's receiving backlash from the media to resign or step down. Don't say things that you may regret. Trump is stink of money.

The somebody was Canada's X prime Minister Kim Campbell, she is retired. Trump is STINK but not with money, DEBT. It will be a Global disappointment when we see Trump's Tax Return, he is under water in debt. and not as rich as he make believe his followers.

That Prime Minister even lost her seat in Parliament, she lost the elections so bad that the Conservatives had to wait for over 15 years for the electorate to forget their wanton ways. I believe she ended up on welfare and the Liberals gave her a life line. Trump is not a looser, unscrupulous, yes, but which American Business Tyccoon is not.

The man seys what he is going to do and he goes about doing it. Does he care about insults, hell no, especially from individuals not remotely close his calibre and class.

A guy told Prashad that Trump grandfather was a Pimp but when it came time to marry he did not hook up with one of his girls instead he went to Germany and hooked up with a country girl. Them Trumps smart.

IT is never too brite to put wimen to work lying on dem backs or straddling or on dem knees. As dey get older and less agile, they get pissed off, to anger and want to kill. Yuh see how dem getting after dem Jewish boys. Next would be the Arabs who comes to their American playground. Doan surprise me if some doan get arrested.
