Hurricane Dorian was almost stationary yesterday as it hovered just north of Grand Bahama Island, but now the hurricane is slowly moving again. The storm 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. 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 p.m. updates from NOAA. The first section will share live radars and streams to track the storm. The next sections will share live web cams so you can watch as the storm nears the coast. (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 from the NOAA for September 3.

According to the National Hurricane Center on September 3 at 8 p.m., Hurricane Dorian is currently at 28.1 N, 78.8 W, about 110 miles east of Cape Canaveral, Florida.
Maximum winds are currently 110 mph, making the storm a Category 2. This is still a dangerous storm. Minimum central pressure is 959 mb (28.32 inches).
NOAA noted at 8 p.m.: “At 800 PM EDT (0000 UTC), the center of Hurricane Dorian was located near latitude 28.1 North, longitude 78.8 West. Dorian is moving toward the northwest near 6 mph (9 km/h), and a slightly faster motion toward the northwest or north-northwest is expected tonight. A turn toward the north is forecast by Wednesday evening, followed by a turn toward the north-northeast Thursday morning. On this track, the core of Hurricane Dorian will move dangerously close to the Florida east coast and the Georgia coast tonight through Wednesday night. The center of Dorian is forecast to move near or over the coast of South Carolina and North Carolina Thursday through Friday morning.
Maximum sustained winds are near 110 mph (175 km/h) with higher gusts. Dorian is expected to remain a powerful hurricane during the next few days. Dorian has become a larger hurricane. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (280 km). NOAA buoy 41010 just north of the center recently reported a sustained wind of 67 mph (107 km/h) and a wind gust of 83 mph (133 km/h).
