VA Clinics in Southern States Close Ahead of Hurricane Dorian's Arrival

Legoland Florida, further inland in Winter Haven, said it would be closed Tuesday but expected to reopen Wednesday depending on the storm's track.

Hurricane Dorian, which is now a Category 2 storm, is on track to make its closest approach to SC by Thursday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington.

Florida remained frighteningly close to the formidable storm and could start to feel more of its wind and rain today.

Forecasters said that the storm had come to a near standstill because the steering currents in the atmosphere had collapsed, but that Dorian would resume moving later in the day, getting "dangerously close" to the Florida coast through Wednesday evening, very near the Georgia and SC coasts Wednesday night and Thursday, and near or over the North Carolina shoreline late Thursday. It has maximum sustained winds of 120 miles per hour and is forecasted to begin moving north-northwest later Tuesday morning.

Hurricane Dorian is beginning to inch northwestward after being stationary over the Bahamas, where its relentless winds have caused catastrophic damage and flooding.

The Coast Guard said more than 20 cutters were on standby in Key West, Florida ready to respond to the Bahamas and the Caribbean.

"As we continue to monitor Hurricane Dorian's path, the safety of our guests, staff, and animals is our greatest priority", the park posted on Instagram.

South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster ordered mandatory evacuations for parts of eight coastal counties effective at noon on Monday.

It may still come close enough to bring tropical storm-force winds to in Polk and Highlands counties, but otherwise, there are no major impacts to the Tampa Bay area.

Practically parking over the Bahamas for a day and a half, Hurricane Dorian pounded away at the islands Tuesday in a watery onslaught that devastated thousands of homes, trapped people in attics and crippled hospitals.
