Slowing Category 2 Hurricane Dorian Takes Aim At Bahamas, Florida

Hurricane Dorian started to slow down its movement in the Atlantic Friday morning, showing signs of shifting its forward movement from a northwest to a west-northwest to westward as the long Labor Day weekend begins.

Dorian remained at category 2 intensity with maximum sustained winds of 110 miles per hour, just under major hurricane status (category 3-5), which it is expected to reach later on Friday. The storm's movement was northwest at 10 miles per hour.

The National Hurricane Center says Dorian could reach category 4 intensity before landfall in Florida, which now may not come until Tuesday if the storm continues to move slowly.

Mayor Buddy Dyer is declaring a state of emergency for the city of Orlando ahead of Hurricane Dorian. Speaking today, Dyer said Dorian could be the most significant storm Orlando has seen in decades.
