The 11 a.m. update from the National Hurricane Center shows some big changes from earlier forecasts.
1) Dorian is now putting out 70 mile per hour maximum sustained winds, up from 60 mph at 5 a.m.
2) The storm's projected path brings it a bit south of where the 5 a.m. track had it coming on shore. The center of the forecast cone would be to the south of Cape Canaveral.
3) Dorian is now forecast to be a potentially major hurricane of Category 3. It was teetering between a Cat 1 and 2 at the 5 a.m. update.
Unfortunately, nobody knows for sure what this storm will do, but as we said all morning we all need to be prepared to be dealing with a hurricane early Monday morning.

Meanwhile, the Palm Beach and Martin County chapter of the American Red Cross is preparing.
Volunteers have been taking inventory of their disaster supplies and they recommend you do the same thing.
You need at least a three day supply of water and non-perishable food in your family’s hurricane kit.
They say it’s also important that you have a plan of what you will do if the storm threatens…shelter in place, or evacuate.
