Hurricane Dorian Hits Southeast Coast

By September 9th, Hurricane Dorian is expected to continue north along the southeastern coastline as a category 1 hurricane with winds up to 90 mph.


The hurricane appeared to originate from the Bahamas en route to Canada after devastating thousands and leaving behind numerous cyclones, storms, and floods. The East Coast is in a state of panic as many no longer have a home, and it has been one of the roughest storms seen in years. 


“North Carolina’s Hyde County is preparing to evacuate Ocracoke residents by air,” according to CNN.


The mass destruction left in the Bahamas has swept away roads, buildings, and bridges along with separating families. The death toll has increased to 45. 


The International Red Cross fears 45% of homes on Grand Bahama and the Abacos- some 13,000 properties- were severely damaged or destroyed,” stated by the BBC.


Scientists say that Hurricane Dorian has been linked to climate change and has been hard to predict. Because heat is the primary source of a hurricane, the increased amount of water vapor has fueled Dorian. This is something that scientists will be keeping a close eye on as the hurricane season continues. 


We hope that those affected will have a speedy recovery.
