Cat 5 Hurricane Dorian landed in the Elbow Cay, Abacos Bahamas with 185 mph winds and gusts over 225 mph. It’s moving very slowly, 7 mph, which makes it more dangerous. Abacos is only 20 feet above sea level.
The ABC News team in the Bahamas reports “catastrophic damage” due to Hurricane Dorian, including boats on top of structures.
All tracks take a northern path at this point but it’s unclear where it might make landfall along the U.S. coast.
This is the scene in Abaco Bahamas #HurricaneDorian2019

This Instagram user is “asking for prayers,” they’re “stuck.” There is a Christmas tree in the video so it’s not clear if this is legitimate or not. This could be from another hurricane. It does come from BNO News but we don’t know how well they vet their posts.
What we really don’t understand is why people are walking around and driving around with this monster hitting the shores.

NHC’s 11 AM advisory for #HurricaneDorian puts its central pressure at 913 mb. It’s one of 15 Atlantic hurricanes on record to go < 915 mb. It seems to be the farthest north that a hurricane has attained such a low MSLP outside of the Gulf of Mexico. #Dorian

Maximum predicted ocean waves from Hurricane #Dorian will be 40-60 feet along the Florida coastline with 24-36 hours of continuous battering of the beaches.
As Dorian heads north, the largest waves > 80-feet will be on the eastern half of the storm. pic.twitter.com/Gw6n2mv0Oe
