Hurricane Dorian - Friday Update

Dear San Carlos Owners,

As of this morning, August 30, 2019 at 10:30AM, the forecast for Hurricane Dorian is as follows:

  • Hurricane Dorian is now moving through the western Atlantic Ocean.
  • Dorian is currently a Category 2 hurricane and is forecast to intensify into a powerful Category 4, posing a prolonged danger that may last days in Florida and the southeastern United States beginning Labor Day weekend. 

Dorian’s Forecast Timing

  • Today: Dorian’s center is expected to track to the north and east of the Turks and Caicos and the southeastern Bahamas. Dorian will strengthen and likely become a major hurricane (Category 3 or stronger) later Today.

  • Saturday: Dorian will bend west-northwest to westward by early Saturday, and it is expected to slow its forward motion. Dorian will likely begin to impact the northwestern Bahamas by Saturday night or early Sunday.

  • Sunday-Monday: Dorian will continue to slow down as it approaches and begins to impact the southeastern U.S., most likely somewhere between Florida and southeastern Georgia. That said, areas as far north as the Carolinas should also monitor for potential impacts from Dorian early next week.

  • Tuesday-Wednesday: Dorian’s slow movement could allow it to continue impacting the Florida Peninsula and possibly other parts of the Southeast into the middle part of next week.

I will continue to update everyone throughout the weekend and into next week.
