SALT LAKE CITY — Hurricane Dorian could hit Florida as a Category 4 storm by Saturday night, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Winds are expected to climb to 130 miles per hour.
Forecasters have warned Floridians from Miami all the way to Jacksonville to prepare for the storm to batter the coast, according to The New York Times.
The National Hurricane Center said the storm could cause “catastrophic damage,” according to The New York Times.
Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida issued an emergency for counties in the storm’s path.
“All Floridians really need to monitor Hurricane Dorian,” he said.
Twitter reacted with surprise when they heard the hurricane was set to hit Florida, despite only being a tropical storm days ago. Others revealed they weren’t scared at all for the storm.
