Dorian Moves North Towards The Carolinas

CHARLESTON – Hurricane Dorian left a trail of destruction across the Bahamas and has been threatening the southeast coast of the United States for days.

Now the storm is dangerously close to the Carolinas and Southern Virginia, forecasters fear any westward deviation of the storm’s path could be devastating.

Although the area will not take a direct hit, officials warn of the potential for devastating flooding in Charleston, South Carolina, where streets are already turning into rivers.







The storm was upgraded to a major category three hurricane Wednesday evening, as it makes its way north.

Mandatory evacuations went into effect on Monday for over a million coastal area residents in the Carolinas and Virginia.
