At 1PM Dorian became a Category 3, a major hurricane. The current tracking has it passing over the Northern Bahamas and making landfall on the Florida Peninsula East of Lake Okeechobee. Once ashore the current tracking has the storm taking a right turn to parallel I-95. Given the “king tides”, up to a 12-foot surge topped by storm-tossed breakers, and a prodigious amount of rain, there is an almost certain chance of major flooding along the corridor.
