Dorian is now a Cat 5 Hurricane.
The exceptionally powerful hurricane Dorian continues deepening as seen by the latest NOAA Hurricane Hunters data and satellite imagery. Very impressive data has been collected on the latest recon flights, Dorian is packing sustained winds of 185 mph (= 290 km/h) and gusts well above 200 mph (330 km/h). The central pressure has dropped even more and is, based on the dropsonde observations, now at 909-911 mbar.
