Hurricane Dorian makes landfall on northern Bahamas as mandatory evacuations begin on coastal Florida
Mandatory evacuation orders have been issued for parts of coastal Florida in preparation for Hurricane Dorian. Little over an hour after the Category Five storm  made landfall in the northern Bahamas Florida governor, Ron DeSantis announced the evacuation of some coastal communities. In some cases the evacuations are mandatory in others voluntary. Tolls charges have been suspended to allow people to make their escape. Dorian was reportedly packing winds of 185 mph, with fears that gusts could top 200 mph. "This is a life-threatening situation. Residents, there should take immediate shelter," the US government's National Hurricane Centre said. Do not venture into the eye if it passes over your location."  Hubert Minnis, the Bahamanian Prime Minister, appealed to tourists and residents to head for shelters. "If you wait until tonight, it will be too late," he said. "Time is not on our side." Around 28,000 Britons people visit the Bahamas annually and the islands have enjoyed a bumper year for tourism. According to the latest projections Dorian, which on Sunday morning was around 225 miles off West Palm Beach, Florida, will batter the Bahamas for up to 24 hours before turning north. Hurricane Dorian Both the European and US models show the hurricane turning north on Monday night with winds still at 140 mph, but remaining offshore. By the early hours of Thursday morning, with the wind have dropped down to around 100 mph, Dorian is expected to be off the shore of Georgia, before reaching Cape Hatteras, North Carolina early on Friday. Even though the centre of the hurricane is now projected to remain off the US mainland, the states of Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina are still bracing themselves for heavy rainfall and storm damage. “This storm has been particularly difficult, a lot of uncertainty,” Peter Gaynor, acting administrator at the Federal Emergency Management Agency, told NBC’s Meet the Press.

The time now is for residents to really prepare. “It is going to impact Florida, it is going to impact Georgia, it is going to impact the Carolinas and now is the time to  make those preparations.” Mr Gaynor warned that people should not become complacent even though the projections suggested the hurricane would stay offshore. “I think the mistake most people make is they follow that thin black line and think that is the exact location they think the storm will be in. “Your really have to look at the ‘cone of uncertainty’. If you look at that it really covers the majority of Florida and as you go north great parts of Georgia and the Carolinas. “We are not out of this just yet.”
