  • How Hurricane Dorian is affecting Disney and Universal theme parks

According to the National Hurricane Center, Dorian now has maximum sustained winds of 155 miles per hour, which has fallen slightly since making landfall in the Bahamas on Sunday evening. "We have reports of bodies being seen", he said.

Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said the devastation was "unprecedented" in the Abaco Islands, which received the full brunt of Dorian, as it came ashore Sunday, the most powerful storm ever to hit the archipelago.

Dorian weakened slightly Monday to a still-devastating Category 4 storm, punishing Grand Bahama with "life-threatening storm surge and catastrophic winds", the Miami-based National Hurricane Center said. "As soon as the weather permits, first responders will go to those areas where we have reports from individuals who were in distress".

The National Hurricane Center downgraded the storm to a Category 4 late Monday morning. Dorian has been pummeling Grand Bahama Island Monday afternoon with storm surges rising 18 to 23 feet above normal tide levels.

Fear gripped residents of Freeport, as winds tore off shutters and water began coming into homes, said Yasmin Rigby, reached by text in the Grand Bahama island's main city. "Residents in the Abacos should also continue to stay in their shelter until conditions subside later tonight", the agency warned, adding that "these hazards will continue over Grand Bahama Island through much of this evening, causing extreme destruction on the island".

Cameras outside the International Space Station captured views at 11:27 a.m. EDT on September 2 of Hurricane Dorian from 260 miles in altitude as it churned over northwestern Bahamas.

Over the next day or so, Dorian is expected to make a "slow westward to west-northwestward motion" followed by a "gradual turn toward the northwest and north", the NHC also says.

Monster storm Dorian stalked across the Bahamas on Monday as surging seawater and ferocious winds sowed chaos in low-lying island communities, claiming at least one life and spurring mass evacuations on the United States east coast.

A hurricane warning is in effect along Florida's east coast from Jupiter Inlet to Ponte Vedra Beach.

Outer rainbands have moved ashore in South Florida, with winds over 40 miles per hour at Opa Locka Airport near Miami as well as other locations near the coast. Polk County, home of Legoland, is under a tropical storm watch.

"We are asking everyone to please heed those warnings and evacuate if at all possible, given the risks of strong winds and potential flooding in these areas", he said.
