Hurricane Dorian’s center is near Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, as it continues its crawl up the East Coast.
The storm’s maximum sustained winds Friday morning are near 90 mph (150 kph), making it a Category 1 hurricane.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the storm is centered about 10 miles (15 kilometers) west-southwest of Cape Hatteras and is moving northeast near 14 mph (22 kph).
Dorian hammered the Bahamas earlier this week, killing at least 30 people. But it swept past Florida at a relatively safe distance, grazed Georgia, and then hugged the South Carolina-North Carolina coastline. At least four deaths in the Southeast have been blamed on the storm.
