Is Hurricane Dorian The Strongest Storm of The Planet?

The storm — the strongest anywhere on the planet this year — made landfall Sunday afternoon on the southern end of the Bahamas’ Elbow Cay, which runs along the east coast of Great Abaco. It was the first time a Category 5 storm has hit the Bahamas since Hurricane Andrew in 1992.

The storm destroyed homes and blew away roofs in the Abaco Islands, local authorities said. Videos from residents on Great Abaco showed wind bending trees and heavy rain washing out the horizon as thigh-high water flooded an apartment complex.

Hurricane Dorian is expected to barrel towards the United States later today after battering the Bahamas with furious winds that destroyed homes, shredded roofs, toppled power lines and killed at least one person overnight.

The Category 5 hurricane made landfall with wind speeds of 185mph, tying the record for the strongest storm ever to hit land and spinning along the island of Grand Bahama in a day-long assault.

There were gusts of up to 225mph and up to 30 inches of rain were expected in the Bahamas where a seven-year-old boy is believed to have drowned.

Dorian was lingering over the Bahamas this morning – leaving an airport under five feet of water – but is expected to move towards the Florida coast later on Monday.

In the U.S. hundreds of thousands of people are being evacuated from their homes in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina amid warnings of a ‘life-threatening storm surge and hurricane force winds’.

Specialists Reports About Hurricane Dorian

Specialists say strong winds and dangerous storm surge are increasingly likely along the coasts of Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina.

Hurricane specialists say there is also an increasing likelihood of strong winds and dangerous storm surge along the coasts of Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina later in the week when Dorian is expected to track up the Southeast seacoast.

Mandatory evacuation orders in Florida for low-lying and flood-prone areas and mobile homes cover from Palm Beach County north to at least the Daytona Beach area, and some counties to the north issued voluntary evacuation notices.

Weekend traffic was light in Florida despite those orders, unlike during the chaotic run-up to Hurricane Irma in 2017 when unusually broad Irma menaced the entire state.

Current forecasts show only Florida’s east coast is affected, meaning residents may choose to flee westward.
