  Hurricane Dorian is finally moving away from South Florida and, thankfully, the northwestern Bahamas.

There are no watches or warnings in South Florida.  The tropical storm warning from north of Deerfield Beach to Jupiter Inlet has been discontinued.

A tropical storm warning remains in effect for Grand Bahama Island and the Abacos Islands. [See Video Below]

At 5 pm, Dorian was located near 27.7 North, 78.7 West, about 105 miles east of Vero Beach.  Maximum sustained winds were 110 miles per hour.  Dorian was moving northwest at 6 miles per hour.

Faith Based Events

Dorian is expected to turn to the north on Wednesday evening and to the northeast on Thursday.  Dorian has expanded in area, increasing the threat of hurricane force winds from the east-central Florida coast northward to the Carolinas.  Watches and warnings have been extended northward to Virginia and Chesapeake Bay.

The core of Dorian should remain offshore of Florida, but hurricane conditions and life-threatening storm surge are likely along portions of the coast from the Melbourne area northward to the Jacksonville area Tuesday night and in the overnight hours of Wednesday.  Hurricane conditions are likely along portions of the South Carolina coast by Wednesday evening.
