This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

The National Hurricane Center just sent out an update on Hurricane Dorian, and now expects the storm to become a major hurricane just before it makes landfall in Florida. Current trajectory has Hurricane Dorian being a Category 4 storm on Monday when landfall with Florida may occur. Eye of the storm looks to be tracking towards Central Florida at 8 am on Tuesday, with the storm making landfall sometime around Monday morning.

From the National Hurricane Center:

Key Messages:

1. The risk of life-threatening storm surge and hurricane-force
winds this weekend continues to increase in the northwestern
Bahamas, and hurricane watches could be issued there tonight or
Friday. Residents should have their hurricane plan in place and
listen to advice given by local emergency officials.

2. There is an increasing likelihood of life-threatening storm surge
along portions of the Florida east coast late this weekend or early
next week, although it is too soon to determine where the highest
storm surge will occur. Residents should have their hurricane plan
in place, know if they are in a hurricane evacuation zone, and
listen to advice given by local emergency officials.

3. The risk of devastating hurricane-force winds along the Florida
east coast and peninsula late this weekend and early next week
continues to increase, although it is too soon to determine where
the strongest winds will occur.

4. Regardless of the exact track of Dorian, heavy rains are expected
to occur over portions of the Bahamas, Florida, and elsewhere in the
southeastern United States this weekend and into the middle of next
week.

everyone should have a few bags packed and know where your flashlights are
stay inside and watch a good movie like 10.000b.c.
movie theaters need and must open and replay movies like 300 or anything that was approved
Use Edwards and AMC theaters in Ontario as well as try to bring in new games and products to market and research like the future icecream balls in Montclair
