Airline opertions are severely disrupted and passenbgers should check with their

At 200 AM EDT (0600 UTC), the center of Hurricane Dorian was located
near latitude 28.7 North, longitude 79.2 West. Dorian is moving
toward the north-northwest near 7 mph (11 km/h), and a slightly
faster motion toward the northwest or north-northwest is expected
through this morning.  A turn toward the north is forecast by this
evening, followed by a turn toward the north-northeast on Thursday
morning.  On this track, the core of Hurricane Dorian will move
dangerously close to the Florida east coast and the Georgia coast
through tonight.  The center of Dorian is forecast to move near or
over the coast of South Carolina and North Carolina Thursday through
Friday morning.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 110 mph (175 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Some weakening is expected during the next couple of days,
and Dorian is expected to remain a powerful hurricane during the
next few days.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) from
the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175
miles (280 km).  Saint Augustine Beach Pier, Florida, recently
reported a sustained wind of 45 mph (72 km/h) with a gust to 52 mph
(84 km/h).

The minimum central pressure reported by an Air Force Reserve Unit
Hurricane Hunter aircraft is 964 mb (28.47 inches).
