Hurricane Durian rushed to Florida on Friday due to growing anger and became a Category 4 storm “very serious”, but left forecasters unsure whether it would hit the eastern coast of the state directly or with an earthquake. I’ll blow
Hurricane winds surged to 130 miles per hour (215 kilometers per hour), and hours later, Durian gained strength by crossing the warm Atlantic waters to 140 miles per hour (225 kilometers per hour).
The storm could close the state at the intersection with Walt Disney World and the Mar Lago resort of President Donald Trump, with strong winds and heavy rain on Monday or late Tuesday night too.
However, as Dorian density increased, some of the more reliable computer models predicted a shift northward to the Dorian coast, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Weak hope came on a day when Dorian was concerned with each predictive update, rising from a serious Category 3 storm to more Category 4 hurricanes.
There were fears that it could be the strongest storm to hit Florida’s east coast in about 30 years.
Late on Friday, the expected new route at the National Hurricane Center showed Dorian about 70 miles (115 kilometers) north of Mar Lago near Fort Pierce, then moving north along the coast.
But meteorologists warned that the course of the storm was still uncertain and that there was a small deviation that could make Dorian abroad or well.
He told reporters that “Mar Lago can deal with himself” and is more concerned about Florida.
“It’s big and growing, and for some time it’s still deteriorating,” said Julio Vazquez at a Miami fast-food restaurant next to a gas station that ran out of fuel. “Nobody knows what can really happen. It’s dangerous.”
As Dorian closed, he carried out plans for the Labor Day popular holiday. Major airlines have begun to allow travelers to change their reservations for free.
Larger cruise lines began to refill their ships. Disney World and other Orlando resorts found themselves on the expected path of the storm.
Jessica Armisto and her one-year-old daughter Milna plan to have breakfast at Disney World with Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy.
Instead, Armesto decided to seek shelter at his mother’s hurricane-resistant home in Miami, which had a kitchen full of non-food items.
“I felt it better to be safe than sorry, so we canceled our plans,” she said.
However, with Dorian’s days and paths uncertain, Disney and other major resorts announced the closure, and Florida officials ordered an immediate mass evacuation.
“Sometimes if you evacuate too quickly, you can block the storm, if it changes,” said Ron Desantes.
Supermarkets ran out of bottled water, and long lines were formed at gas stations, causing fuel shortages.
The Florida highway will start transporting gasoline trucks to help them compensate motorists and gas stations, the governor said.
At the Publix supermarket in Cocoa Beach, Ed Siakerski of the customer service department said that the pharmacy was very busy with people rushing to fill dispensaries. The grocery bottle was rationing water and dried from dry ice.
“It felt,” he said.
By 11 pm EST, Durian’s center was about 375 miles (605 kilometers) east of the northwestern Bahamas. It also had winds blowing at 140 mph (225 mph) with storm packets about 545 miles (880 km) east of West Palm Beach.
It was moving from west to northwest at 10 mph (17 km / h). Florida’s slow winds, hurricanes and heavy rains could lead to catastrophic disasters in the long run, meteorologists have warned.
The center of the storm said coastal areas could receive rains ranging from 6 to 12 inches (15 to 30 cm), with some places where rainfall falls by 18 inches (46 cm).
Federal Football Federation official Jeff Byrd said Dorian was likely to “cause a lot of damage” to roads, electricity and other infrastructure.
In addition, there were Bahamas, where canned food and bottled water disappears quickly and hammers hesitate to the islands as they enter people’s homes.
Durian was expected to hit on Sunday with the possibility of a life-threatening storm, which could raise the water level 15 feet above normal.
Prime Minister Hubert Menes said, “Do not be silly and try to evict this storm.” “The price you can pay to dump is your life.”
At NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, NASA built a 380-foot mobile launch pad to protect the massive vehicle assembly building, designed to operate at speeds of 125 miles per hour (200 kilometers per hour).
The launcher is intended for the massive rocket that NASA is developing to transport astronauts to the moon.
Typically the hurricane season falls in mid-August and late October. One of the strongest storms in America to date was Labor Day 1935. An unknown Category 5 hurricane crashed on the Gulf of Florida’s Sabbath coast. 2. More than 400 deaths have been blamed.
