Hurricane Dorian WEB CAM LIVE: Watch Cat 3 Hurricane smash Bahamas and head for Florida

Dorian is rapidly intensifying and is projected to become a major category 3 hurricane on Friday, NOAA warned in its latest advisory. It is currently whipping out winds of 110mph, making it a Category 2 hurricane on the Saffir Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. That means if Dorian's winds increase by just one mile it will be a major Category 3 hurricane. A hurricane watch is in effect for the northwestern Bahamas, who can expect hurricane conditions within the next 48 hours.

In its latest advisory  warned: "Residents should begin to execute their hurricane plans and listen to advice given by local emergency officials.

"The dangerous hurricane is forecast to make landfall in Florida late this weekend.

"There is an increasing likelihood of a prolonged period of hazardous weather conditions that could last for a couple of days in parts of Florida early next week.


NOAA said: “The risk of life-threatening storm surge along portions of the Florida east coast has increased, although it is too soon to determine where the highest storm surge will occur.

“The risk of devastating hurricane-force winds along the Florida east coast and peninsula early next week has also increased, although it is too soon to determine where the strongest winds will occur.”

Dorian could be the most powerful hurricane to smash into the east coast of Florida since Hurricane Andrew in 1992.

Hurricane Dorian is currently heading towards the Sunshine State as the strongest storm of the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season, with wind gusts of 110mph.
