Summary

As a strengthened Hurricane Dorian bore down on the Bahamas Saturday, new tracking forecasts suggested the storm would likely turn north before hitting Florida and skirt the coast toward the Carolinas.But even as Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina braced for a possible hit, forecasters and government officials warned Floridians not to ease up on preparations for a devastating storm early next week. A mandatory evacuation order for Brevard County's barrier island was postponed for by 24 hours – from 8 a.m. Sunday to 8 a.m. Monday – until the hurricane's final track was firmer.The National Hurricane Center said in its 11 p.m. EDT advisory that Dorian, packing sustained winds of 150 mph as a Category 4 "major" hurricane, was located about310 miles east of West Palm Beach, slowing to 8 mph.A tropical storm watch has been issued for part of Florida's east coast, from Deerfield Beach to Sebastian Inlet.Aug 31 | 11 AM Update: We're not in the clear yet, east central Florida is still in the forecast cone. In addition, a storm surge could reach as much as much as 10 to 15 feet above normal tide levels with onshore winds.Major cruise lines began rerouting ships and airlines began allowing travelers to change their reservations without an extra charge.With the storm's westward path in flux, the NHC also said the risk of strong winds and life-threatening surge was increasing along the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina during the middle of next week."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 Hurricane Center said.A link has been posted to your Facebook feed.
