Hurricane Dorian strengthened to a Category 4 storm Saturday evening as it continues its approach toward the southeastern U.S. coast. The question of exactly where the storm will make landfall is still up in the air, especially after its forecast path shifted east earlier today. Some forecasters are even saying Dorian may bypass Florida completely, either remaining about 50 miles off the coast throughout the week or possibly touching down in South Carolina on around Wednesday.
At the same time, Florida and South Carolina officials told residents earlier today to keep their guards up because the powerful storm remains incredibly unpredictable.
A state of emergency is in effect in Florida, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Hurricane Dorian is on track to make devastating landfall in the Bahamas sometime Sunday, and mandatory evacuations are reportedly underway there.
As of 5 p.m. EDT Saturday, Dorian was about 355 miles east of West Palm Beach, Florida with winds remaining near 150 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center.
