Hurricane Dorian is taking its time creeping up the southeastern coast. Forecasters with the National Weather Service say they’re expecting sustained wind speeds along the coast of 65-85 mph when the storm passes the Cape Fear region.
The major concerns: wind damage and flooding.
From the Cape Fear Region to Surf City, National Weather Service Meteorologist Mark Willis says winds could gust up to 100 mph. Dorian makes its closest pass late Thursday into Friday. But a little wobble to the left or right could change the intensity.
