Hurricane Dorian Expected To Hammer U.S. Tonight

Hurricane Dorian is slowly beginning to close in on the U.S. mainland after hitting the Bahamas hard.

The National Hurricane Center says the Category 5 storm will come "dangerously close" to Florida's east coast from tonight through Wednesday evening.

Dorian is barely moving at anywhere from one to three miles an hour with maximum sustained winds of 165 miles an hour.

Florida is already feeling some of the storm's punch.

A hurricane warning is out for much of the east coast and mandatory evacuation orders are in effect for mobile homes and low-lying and flood-prone areas from Palm Beach County north to the Daytona Beach area.
