Here’s the 11 p.m. update from the National Hurricane Center:

 

At 11p.m. Wednesday, the eye of Hurricane Dorian was located 90 miles north of San Juan, Puerto Rico. Maximum sustained winds have increased to 85mph  with gusts to 105 mph.

Dorian is forecast to strengthen and become a powerful hurricane during the next few days over the Atlantic waters. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles.

 

Dorian is moving toward the northwest at 13 mph. On this track, Dorian should move over the Atlantic well east of the southeastern and central Bahamas on Thursday and Friday.

Dorian is expected to produce the following rainfall accumulations:

The central Bahamas…2 to 4 inches, isolated 6 inches.

The northern Bahamas and Coastal sections of the Southeast United States…4 to 8 inches, isolated 10 inches.

This rainfall may cause life-threatening flash floods.

Swells around the U.S. and British Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico should gradually diminish tonight.

Dorian will make landfall along the coast of eastern  Florida Sunday night. Possible as a Category Three Hurricane.
