Hurricane Dorian

(WJHL)- Dorian’s eye moved across the Outer Banks early this morning, making official landfall at Cape Hatteras as a category 1 storm.

High winds and heavy rain continue to batter the coastline, as well as inland areas of SE Virginia and eastern NC. The flood risk remains high through the morning into the early afternoon hours.

Dorian’s wind field means hurricane force winds along the coast, with tropical storm force winds reaching inland areas.

Dorian picks up forward speed, with a track into the open waters today into the weekend.
