Dorian Still Pummeling Bahamas; Will Begin March Up U.S. Coast Today

"Hurricane Dorian will finally begin its long-awaited march up the Southeast coast today after delivering one last punishing blow over the storm-fatigued northwest Bahamas.

Dorian's wind intensity has backed off from Sunday's peak, currently a Category 3 hurricane. Regardless of its intensity and track, Dorian will have significant, damaging impact from Florida's Atlantic coast to parts of Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and possible southeast Virginia this week.

Dorian is still stuck near Grand Bahama Island. The eyewall has pummeled the island since Sunday night with destructive winds and catastrophic storm-surge flooding."
