Hurricane warning: Dorian to hit Florida coast as category 4 with 130 mph winds on Labor Day

In what could be described as the strongest hurricane in the last 30 years, every county in Florida has declared an emergency. This is done to prepare the inhabitants in a better manner with regards to any eventuality.

At 85 mph, Dorian is the strongest storm of the Atlantic hurricane season so far. 

CNN Meteorologist Brandon Miller says that Dorian is currently proving to be very atrocious and the strongest storm of the Atlantic hurricane season with winds of 85 mph.  If it makes a landfall with powerful winds of around 130 mph falling under the category 4 storm on Monday, then it will be the strongest since 1992 when Andrew hit on Florida’s East Coast.

Floridians were very much threatened with the damage done by Hurricane Michael in 2018 and they seem to be maintaining even greater level caution to combat with any looming threat as it is yet to prevail over the next few days.

All the 67 counties are in high alert and the Gov. Ron DeSantis has said that the state is equipped with 819,000 gallons of water along with 1.8 million meals for the purpose of distribution, if any untoward incident happens in the coming days.

Currently, Dorian is heading towards northwest in Atlantic, on Thursday night with the winds measuring at the speed of 85mph

The met department has predicted that the storm will land on Monday morning and till that time, there are 4 days left. So the possible areas of landing the hurricane is expected to vary as it may stretch from Florida Keys to southeast Georgia.

So, there are expectations of lots of rain in the outer banks.
The areas which are going to be under the effect of the storm will experience tropical winds of 39mph right from early part of Saturday.
