SPACE COAST DAILY TV HURRICANE UPDATE: Space Daily’s Chris Bonanno discusses the latest advisory issued by the National Hurricane Center on Hurricane Dorian as of 11 p.m. Friday. The projected path on Friday at 11 p.m. shifted north again, with the storm now predicted to make landfall north of Port St. Lucie, take a hard turn north, and move up the coast into Brevard County.

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Hurricane  Dorian is forecast to be a dangerous Category 4 hurricane as it approaches Florida, according to the National Weather Service in Melbourne, Florida.

The National Hurricane Center said that Dorian’s intensity strengthened Friday into a Category 4 hurricane and is forecast Friday at 11 p.m. to hit the Brevard County coast packing 140 mph winds.

But the National Hurricane Center said models have not been consistent and that the entire east coast of Florida is a possible target for a storm.

According to the National Weather Service, Dorian could bring a triple-threat of dangers” to the state, including a “life-threatening storm surge, devastating hurricane-force winds and heavy rains.

National Hurricane Center Director Ken Graham said a Category 4 storm like this striking Florida could produce a storm surge of 10-foot or greater.

Residents should have their hurricane plan in place and listen to the advice given by local emergency officials.
