Summary

Five counties issued voluntary evacuations, but only two — Martin and Brevard — planned to make it mandatory for residents on barrier islands.Saturday evening, Florida ordered hurricane watches for five counties, from Broward County to Indian River County, as Dorian lumbered at 8 mph toward the Bahamas.That country is preparing for “catastrophic” wind, rain and storm surge Sunday, especially in the north, said Lindsay Thompson, public information officer for the National Emergency Management Agency in Nassau.“It’s slow moving, so it’s really not good,” Thompson said. “He said basically, you will die if you stay.”[‘Extremely dangerous’ Hurricane Dorian barrels toward Southeast U.S. as likelihood of direct hit on Florida decreases]Hurricane-force winds extended out 30 miles from the ­well-defined eye of the storm, and tropical-storm-force winds of up to 74 mph extended outward 115 miles, according to the National Hurricane Center.The wind field and uncertain track kept people on the east coast of Florida in active preparation mode Saturday. They were deployed around the state — including at the Daytona Motor Speedway — waiting for the power outages officials said are inevitable with a strong hurricane.FPL communications director Brian Garner said Dorian is likely to knock out power somewhere in the state.“Rest assured that Florida remains in the cone of uncertainty, and this is still a very dangerous storm,” he said.Floridians seemed to be heeding that warning Saturday.
