The news about Dorian
Hurricane Dorian yesterday afternoon became one of the strongest storms ever recorded in the Atlantic, with winds up to 185 mph. The wind speeds have since slowed to 165 mph, and while it might or might not make direct landfall on Florida’s Atlantic Coast, government officials in rank all the way up to the governor are urging continued caution. Millions of Floridians will feel its effects during the next 48 hours.
