FLORIDA, USA — Hurricane Dorian has been making headlines across the United States before it has even made landfall.

Dorian is expected to strengthen to a category four hurricane with more than 130 mph sustained winds by the time it makes landfall.

The forecast cone of the storm shows it taking aim somewhere along the east coast of Florida, stretching from the Georgia border, all of the way down to the Florida Keys.

On Friday morning, the storm was nearly a category three storm with 110 mph sustained winds and the storm was moving to the NW at 10 mph.
