Hurricane Dorian: Second Strongest Storm Recorded in the Atlantic


By Elle Wendrow, Reporter

Hurricane Dorian was 150 miles south of Charleston, South Carolina Sept. 4  with the eye to the east of southern Georgia’s coast. It had already passed through the Bahamas and up the coast of Florida and had shut down flights from the international airport in Charleston that same afternoon.  

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) reported that Dorian was rated a category five over the islands to category two once it reached the eastern U.S. coastline. States in Dorian’s path ordered evacuations as the hurricane moved up the coastline.

Below are two websites, Mercy Corps and the Red Cross, in which you can donate to help the survivors of Dorian, especially those in the Bahamas and Florida.
