Tropical trouble for Florida coast this weekend?



(WSYR-TV) – There hasn’t been much activity in the Atlantic or Gulf of Mexico thus far this hurricane season of 2019 but it’s almost September and you know what that means?

Yes, this is the time of year when hurricane activity in the Atlantic typically peaks and low and behold we have Hurricane Dorian that became a hurricane near Puerto Rico Wednesday afternoon.

The National Hurricane Center is forecasting a POSSIBLE landfall as a category 2 or 3 storm, max sustained winds of around 115 mph, Sunday or Monday this holiday weekend on the east coast of the Florida Peninsula.

There still is a good amount of uncertainty regarding where this dangerous storm will make landfall and how strong the storm will be when doing so. One thing that appears to be pretty certain is that Dorian will probably make landfall in Florida.

If you know anyone who lives in Florida and or have some property yourself in the sunshine state keep a close eye on the 18 Storm Team Forecast and take the proper precautions if possible.
