posted by Hannity Staff - 9.03.19

Recently released satellite images are showing the extent of Hurricane Dorian’s impact on the Bahamas; revealing widespread flooding that has vast sections of the archipelago under water.

“Catastrophic Hurricane Dorian practically parked itself over Grand Bahama Island and now a striking satellite image of the Island shows vast areas of the island under water after Dorian passed through the region on Monday,” reports CBS Miami. “Grand Bahama Island was still in the path of Hurricane Dorian on Tuesday and the area continues to endure devastating weather conditions produced by the hurricane’s eyewall, according to the National Hurricane Center.”

Hurricane Dorian was downgraded to a Category 2 storm Tuesday afternoon; hovering over the Bahamas for more than 36 hours as it slowly makes its way towards the Atlantic coast of the United States.

Hurricane Dorian, the monster of a storm that’s pummeled parts of the Bahamas for the past 36 hours, has been downgraded to a Category 2 storm as it finally starts to inch away from Grand Bahama — but the storm is showing signs it’s growing before taking aim at the Southeast,” reports Fox News.

Dorian is currently 100 miles east of West Palm Beach, Florida traveling at 2mph.


“The headline for this #Dorian advisory is NOT that the wind speed has slightly decreased. The combined wind, surge, and floods hazards are the same or even worse since the hurricane has become larger. Full advisory: http://hurricanes.gov,” posted the National Hurricane Center.

STATE OF EMERGENCY: Florida Braces for Hurricane Dorian, Trump Tells Residents ‘Be Prepared’

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.29.19

A State of Emergency has been declared for Florida’s eastern and central counties as the state braces for hurricane Dorian to make landfall. The U.S. National Hurricane Center expects Dorian to reach Category 3 status before reaching the U.S. mainland late Sunday or early Monday.

“Across much of Florida’s east coast, residents began flocking to the grocery stores and gas stations, stocking up in anticipation of the storm. There were lines at many gas stations in South Florida as people began filling gas cans and topping off their gas tanks. Some residents using community Facebook groups gave updates on new shipments of water to restock the nearly empty shelves at local grocery stores,” – reports AP News.

President Trump took to twitter Thursday morning to advise caution and preparation before the storm arrives.

 

“Hurricane Dorian looks like it will be hitting Florida late Sunday night. Be prepared and please follow State and Federal instructions, it will be a very big Hurricane, perhaps one of the biggest!” posted Trump on Twitter.

According to AP News, “The Hurricane Center projected the storm could have winds of 125 mph (200 kph) by the time it reaches the mainland.”

Tropical storm Dorian strengthened into an official hurricane Wednesday, with meteorologists warning the dangerous weather system could hit the coast of Florida as a Category 3 hurricane.

“The fourth named storm of the hurricane seasonDorian, strengthened Wednesday into a hurricane near the U.S. Virgin IslandsPuerto Rico and the Bahamas — and by the weekend it may threaten off Florida’s coast as a Category 3 storm,” reports Fox News.

“The National Hurricane Center said Wednesday in its 2 p.m. EST update that Dorian was located right above St. Thomas with maximum winds of 75 mph – a 25 mph increase from Tuesday – as it moved northwest at 13 mph,” adds Fox.

“This is trending in the wrong direction,” Fox News Meteorologist Adam Klotz said Wednesday on “Fox & Friends.” “It’s strengthening, maybe spending more time over warm water, which will allow it to continue to pick up those wind speeds, pick up all that extra moisture. It’s looking like a tough system.”

“Tropical-storm-force winds from #Dorian could begin in parts of Florida *as early as* Saturday or Saturday night. Now is the time to begin thinking about what kinds of preparations you might need to make over the next couple of days,” posted the National Hurricane Center on social media.
