McMaster declares state of emergency ahead of Dorian

The team hopes to arrive in Jacksonville by noon Saturday. "If it bumps just a little west, than you're looking at really, really significant impacts", DeSantis said at a briefing Saturday morning.

"We are a resilient nation", he said.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Labour has warned vendors, shopkeepers and businesses against engaging in selling goods at higher prices to the public as a result of the storm, noting that "the laws regarding price gouging and price hoarding will be scrupulously enforced during the passage of Hurricane Dorian through The Bahamas".

The wind will slowly increase late Sunday in Miami-Dade County, Broward County and the Keys, from the fringe effect of the storm, and be highest Monday and Tuesday.

A hurricane warning is in effect in the northwestern Bahamas, excluding Andros Island, where a hurricane watch is in effect.

The islands on Sunday evening will feel the effects of the hurricane, with wind speeds of up to 145 miles per hour. Unfortunately, the wonderful Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama Island will experience extreme winds for two days or more on this forecast track. Of concern: there is nothing slowing the storm down from intensifying further.

The risk of strong winds and life-threatening storm surge is increasing along the coasts of Georgia and SC during the middle of next week. Some have it making landfall in Southeast Florida, some as far north as Melbourne, and some show it staying in the Atlantic skirting the coast and moving north.

President Trump also responded to Hurricane Dorian's new track, warning the residents of SC particularly to stay safe.

Tropical storm force winds are possible. Polk County may see stronger winds, though.

The strengthening storm was expected to approach Saturday and then move over or near the area Sunday as it followed a path likely to take it on to Florida's east coast.

"The ultimate question is, when does (Dorian) make that sharp turn to the north?"

None of these effects will start until Monday at the earliest. Florida may avoid a direct hit, but there is much uncertainty in the forecast.

The declaration authorizes state and local emergency management agencies to mobilize assets and resources to be staged along the coast ahead of the potential impact from the hurricane.

Trump canceled his plans to travel to Poland this weekend as the hurricane neared. Major airlines began allowing travelers to change their reservations without a fee. Sailors assigned to Naval Station Mayport lay down mooring lines as the amphibious dock landing ship USS Ft. Disney World and Orlando's other resorts found themselves in the storm's projected path.

According to the NHC's 8 a.m. update, Dorian is about 445 miles east of West Palm Beach, Florida, and it is moving west at 12 mph.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis warned Floridians not to let their guard down.

Life-threatening storm surges of 10 to 15 feet could crash into parts of the northwestern Bahamas on Sunday, the hurricane center said.

The storm is expected to move inland, where its slow pace could mean extended misery for communities facing high winds and rainfall. The grocery was rationing bottled water and had run out of dry ice.

"They're buying everything and anything that applies to a hurricane, flashlights, batteries, generators", said Amber Hunter, 30, assistant manager at Cape Canaveral's ACE Handiman hardware store.

The Hurricane Center has shifted its official forecast track east just off the Florida coast, but still within striking distance of the state. Four employees of the home were charged with manslaughter earlier this week. "Do not wait until it is too late to make a plan", he added. Driving high-profile vehicles and boating may be unsafe. The launcher is for the mega rocket that NASA is developing to take astronauts to the moon.

The storm will be long-lived and devastating for many.

"Their hotels are built to exceed Florida building codes so they're built to withstand a category 5 hurricane", he said.
