While Dorian, the second-strongest Atlantic hurricane on record, continues to batter the Bahamas, Orlando International ariport closed at 0200 on Tuesday 3rd September.

Hurricane Dorian is slowly releasing its grip on the Bahamas and is forecast to move along the Atlantic Ocean, close to Florida’s coast.

Although the most recent track removes Florida from the cone of uncertainty, Orlando International Airport have decided to exercise caution and ceased commercial flight operations on Tuesday 3rd September from 2 am EST.

IT is possible that Florida’s eastern coast will still feel potentially dangerous impacts from Dorian, with conditions expected to deteriorate late Monday with the worst of the weather from the storm arriving Tuesday night and Wednesday.

The latest news wire updates report that landfall is still a distinct possibility in Florida on Tuesday as some forecast models see the storm shifting west. The storm is then expected to turn northward and move up the Florida coast.

These impacts are based on Hurricane Dorian’s latest track and can change as the storm shifts in the Atlantic.
