TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3RD, 2019 11AM
11am update: Dorian has been downgraded to a Cat 2 storm as it continues to devastate Grand Bahama. It is moving NW at 2 mph. So the NW motion continues and the forward speed is beginning to increase. Florida no longer in the cone. Dorian will move first NW, then NNW, then N, then NNE then NE. This is the process Dorian will go through as it will slowly move AWAY from Florida. This is a good thing. The impact on the Bay Area will be minimal.
Hurricane season ends November 30th. Now is a good time to make sure all your hurricane supplies are ready and you HAVE A PLAN. Get your barrier island re-entry pass if you have not done so already. Subscribe to ALERT PINELLAS by clicking the link. ALERTPINELLAS
