Hurricane Dorian was almost stationary yesterday as it hovered just north of Grand Bahama Island. But the hurricane is now starting to resume a slow northwest move. The storm will continue affecting Grand Bahama Island this morning, and it will move close to Florida’s east coast late today through Wednesday night. Then it will be close to the Georgia and South Carolina coasts on Wednesday night and Thursday, according to the latest NOAA updates. Then it will be close to North Carolina’s coast late on Thursday. Many people want to keep an eye on the storm’s location on radar, along with local live stream web cams. Here is everything you need to see to watch the storm’s progression as it nears Florida, including 8 a.m. updates from NOAA. The first section will share live radars and streams to track the storm. The second section will share live web cams from Florida so you can watch as the storm nears in the coming day. (Note: Some of these live streams may periodically go down or stop. We’ll look for new ones as that happens.)
The very last section has Dorian’s current coordinates and an 8 a.m. update from NOAA for September 3.
Hurricane Dorian Live Streams, Trackers & Radars
This first live radar is from Windy.com. This radar is very helpful for tracking the storm’s lcoation. You can press the + button on the right-side of the map to zoom in more closely. You can also move the map ahead in time to see where the storm is forecast to be headed.
10 News has a live stream below.
Another live tracker is available from Fox News.
And here’s another live stream tracking the storm from WPTV News.
Live Web Cams from Florida
Here are live web cams from Florida that you’ll want to watch as the storm approaches. Some cams may appear dark at night, but will lighten up as the sun comes back up.
This stream is from Delray Beach, Florida. The cameras are located about 2.5 miles west of the beach.
This stream is from Hollywood Beach, provided by NBC 6 South Florida.
A channel called Ben’s Weather is providing live camera views from Florida, along with streams from news reports too. He’s not providing the streams himself, but is compiling streams in one location from different sources. So at times, you may see him searching for streams on the stream itself. The live stream below is currently down, but we’ll add a new one once he puts one up.
This next stream is from Lake Worth Pier in Palm Beach County, Florida, but may periodically move to other streams too in the Florida region. It’s provided by Surfline.
This next video is from Deerfield Beach, Florida, provided by Ashchu117.

Next is a live stream from a vehicle cam in Florida, provided by hurricanetrack as Mark Sudduth and Brent Lynn set up remote cameras in different parts of the state. The live stream is currently down (they’re probably getting some much-needed sleep), but we’ll update it when a new one is available.
This twitch stream from Jennifer McMahans may show some interesting storm chasing coverage later as the storm approaches. This is from StormViewLive.
Here’s a live cam from Jacksonville, provided by Surfers View.
Redditor stereo0123 said he was streaming a few beach cameras on the east side of Florida. The first is from Melbourne and the second is from Cocoa Beach.
The Sun has a live stream here from Dania Beach, Florida.
Live Web Cams from Other States
After Hurricane Dorian passes Florida, you’ll want to follow with live streams like these from locations in other states.
This next video from Explore Oceans shows a live feed of footage 34 miles seaward of Cape Fear, North Carolina. The storm likely won’t approach this region until much later.
This video from Lloyd Kenney III shows a live deer cam located in northwest Georgia. This area might get rain and winds as the storm approaches.
The latest update from NOAA, as of 8 p.m., says that Dorian is at 26.8N, 78.4W, located 25 miles northeast of Freeport, Grand Bahama Island, and 105 miles east of West Palm Beach, Florida. The storm is currently stationary, NOAA noted. Maximum sustained winds are 140 mph.
Dorian’s Location & Coordinates as of 8 AM, September 3
According to the National Hurricane Center on September 3 at 8 a.m., Hurricane Dorian is currently at 27.1 N, 78.4 W, about 40 miles northeast of Freeport, Grand Bahama Island and 110 miles east-northeast of West Palm Beach, Florida.
Maximum winds are currently 120 mph, down from 11 p.m. Winds are down from the 185 mph maximum that they were two days ago, but this is still a dangerous storm. Minimum central pressure is 952 mb (28.11 inches).
“At 8 a.m. the NOAA noted: “At 800 AM EDT (1200 UTC), the eye of Hurricane Dorian was located by reconnaissance aircraft and NOAA Doppler radar near latitude 27.1 North, longitude 78.4 West. Dorian is beginning to move northwestward at about 1 mph (2 km/h), and a slightly faster motion toward the northwest or north-northwest is expected later today and tonight. A turn toward the north is forecast by Wednesday evening, followed by a turn to the north-northeast Thursday morning. On this track, the core of extremely dangerous Hurricane Dorian will gradually move north of Grand Bahama Island through this evening. The hurricane will then move dangerously close to the Florida east coast late today through Wednesday evening, very near the Georgia and South Carolina coasts Wednesday night and Thursday, and near or over the North Carolina coast late Thursday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 120 mph (195 km/h) with higher gusts. Dorian is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Dorian is expected to remain a powerful hurricane during the next couple of days. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 160 miles (260 km).”
