Dorian update: Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas on Sunday as the second-most violent storm recorded and approached the United States (US) with some Florida residents displaced while Georgia and Carolina suffered heavy winds and floods.

The US National Hurricane Center (NHC) said Dorian landed on Elbow Cay on Abaco Island as a Category 5 storm with a maximum winds of 295 kilometers per hour and winds of over 354 kilometers per hour.

It serves the second time on Great Abaco Island near Marsh Harbor and is now 113 kilometers off the coast of Florida.

Millions of people from Florida to North Carolina are waiting for Dorian to land in the US or vice versa from the Atlantic Ocean. In fact, the strongest hurricanes that ever hit Florida could bring heavy rain and strong winds.

The Miami-based NHC says Dorian’s entry in Florida are still a possibility.

Residents in Abaco posted a video on social media showing flood water entering the side of the house with part of the roof removed.

Dorian update, the sound of an alarm on the whole island was filled with bits of steel and wood. Weather forecasts predict rain of up to 76 centimeters and storm surge up to seven meters as a result of a Category 5 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson wind scale.

Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Minnis in a press conference broadcast on television said ‘fierce storms and monsters’ were affecting the region. The house on the island is built with an insulation of at least 241 kilometers per hour, but storm surge up to six meters higher than the average roof.

“This attack provides a test that has never been encountered before. It was the saddest day of my life when I spoke to the Bahamas’ people.

“I want to say, as a doctor, I am trained to endure many things, but not for such incidents,” Minnis said.

With winds of 298 kilometers an hour, Dorian was on par with Gilbert (1988), Wilma (2005) and the 1935 Labor Day hurricane, for the second-strongest Atlantic storm based on wind speed records.

The NHC said Allen’s speeding in 1980 at a speed of 306 kilometers per hour was considered the most violent hurricane ever.
