Florida braces for Dorian with mandatory evacuations


The Sunshine State is staring down a fairly dreary forecast, as Hurricane Dorian slows to a crawl in the South Atlantic.

The storm, which has killed at least five in The Bahamas, has now stalled completely just off the coast of Florida.  Television meteorologists were stunned as the storm literally reached a speed of zero miles per hour on Monday.

This halt of forward progress means that, not only are The Bahamas continuing to bear the full brunt of Dorian, but that the warm waters surrounding the tourism hot spot could be refueling the storm.

More evacuations were ordered for Florida’s East Coast as Hurricane Dorian slammed into the Bahamas as a powerful Category 5 storm on Sunday.

“This storm is one of the strongest storms that has ever threatened Florida,” Gov. Ron DeSantis told The Weather Channel on Sunday. “It’s now strengthened to where it’s stronger than what Hurricane Andrew was. It’s stronger than Hurricane Michael. This is a major, major threat to the east coast of Florida.”

Authorities took to social media to reiterate their demands.

The storm looks simply massive.

The stalling of the storm could clearly be seen from space:

National authorities have indicated that the weather event could last through the entire work week, with the northeastern shores of the US not feeling the effects of a hopefully docile Dorian well into the weekend.
