    • Update Catastrophic Category 5 Hurricane Dorian is pounding Great Abaco and Grand Bamaha. Hurricane conditions are expected in Florida by late Monday/Tuesday. At 8:00 p.m. EDT (0:00 UTC), the distinct eye of Hurricane Dorian was located near 26.6N, 77.6W, moving toward the west near 5 mph (7 km/h). Maximum sustained winds remain near 185 mph (295 km/h) - NHC's Advisory 34A
    • Update Added the latest NHC's cone & track (Adv. #34).
    • Update The distinct eye of powerful Hurricane Dorian is moving over Great Abaco. The latest wind and pressure data from an Air Force reconnaissance plane just before the eye hit the island indicated that the winds reached exceptional 160 kt. The minimum pressure measured by the plane was 910 mb. The eye has been shrinking, and an eyewall replacement cycle is possibly occurring. The effect of the island terrain and the eyewall replacement cycle should result in some slight fluctuations in intensity during the next 24 to 36 hours, but the hurricane will continue to be extremely dangerous one during that time. After 3 days, a more definite weakening trend should begin. Dorian however, it is forecast to remain a hurricane for the next 5 days. Dorian is expected to slow down a little more, prolonging its catastrophic effects in the northwestern Bahamas. The NHC forecast calls for a slow west to west-northwest motion during the next 48 hours. Both the deterministic and consensus tracks have shown the usual variability to the right or to the left from run to run, but the overall trend is for the hurricane to turn northward offshore but dangerously close to the Florida peninsula. Given the uncertainty in the track forecast and the anticipated increase in size of the hurricane, a Hurricane Warning and Storm Surge Warning have been issued for a portion of the Florida east coast. It is once again emphasized that although the official track forecast does not show landfall, users should not focus on the exact track. A small deviation to the left of the track could bring the intense core of the hurricane its dangerous winds closer to or onto the Florida coast. photo:NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL;desc:Advisory 34; (Advisory #34 by NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL)
