August 31 , 2019
Hurricane Dorian has gained strength as it spun across the Atlantic Ocean towards Florida (USA) and has now become a Category 4 storm. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has reportedly said that the storm is currently moving at a speed of 140 mph (225 kph). In a statement, NHC said that despite fluctuations in intensity, “Dorian is expected to remain a powerful hurricane during the next few days”. NHC Director Ken Graham has said that the Hurricane Dorian will make its landfall in the eastern coast of Florida (biggest vacation destination of the US) and is likely to gain speed on Monday morning. The residents and tourists are stocking up their supplies, plywood, and bottled water as they wait anxiously for the Category 4 Hurricane Dorian. Cocoa Beach Mayor Ben Malik warned that Dorian can create havoc for more than 2-days and could dump up to 18 in (46 cm) of water, thereby increasing the chances of flood.
