Dorian holds steady with Florida in its path

 Dorian holds steady with Florida in its path

Florida finds itself in the projected path of Tropical Storm Dorian. The National Hurricane Center says the storm’s winds dropped to 50 miles per hour last night.

The current track has Dorian directly off the Treasure Coast as a tropical storm Saturday night into Sunday morning.

The key to how strong this storm will be seems to be how much power it loses when it crosses by Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

Forecasters are currently monitoring Tropical Storm Dorian, as it slows down and weakening in the Caribbean.

Last night Indian River County EOC sent out this message:

The National Hurricane Center 5:00 p.m. update shows that Tropical Storm Dorian is located about 60 miles SE of Barbados (1,681 miles ESE from Vero Beach).  Thursday will be a critical time as the National Hurricane Center sees what happens when Dorian interacts with the mountainous area of Hispaniola.  Any potential impacts in the Bahamas or Florida are highly uncertain at this time; however, the forecast cone does now include parts of Florida.  If you have not done so already, now is the time to review your disaster plans, inventory your disaster kits, and monitor media reports for further development.

Here is all you need to know for Preparation.
