Here’s hoping the rain isn’t as destructive as Harvey’s to Houston/Beaumont area
Tropical storms moving so slowly carry their own form of destruction
Not that Dorian has downgraded that far...
But going slower w/less wind force doesn’t translate to “you’re out of danger”...

So the NE quadrant is only the strongest part of the hurricane if the core is "intact"?

If the core is not intact, then any part of the hurricane can be the strongest depending on other other factors?

Isn't the core what makes it a hurricane?

Trying to understand this is like throwing water balloons at a moving target. There is always an exception for everything it seems.

Hurricanes are all a little different. So unfortunately can only answer vaguely: “In general” right front quadrant is stronger with higher surge, higher winds, typically sees greater rainfall, and greater tornado threat. Air recon just started through storm now, that’ll help tell us current structure: https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/recon/

Just saw weather guy on MSNBC saying the eye is now projected to fall WEST of Cape Hatteras which means landfall there is more likely now and heavier damage going inland...
This is a bad one...
So much tidal/flood plain along that coast—big disruption of wildlife along w/human life...

(My bad—put east up there by mistake initially)

The Hurricane icons in SC are for reports of 40-55mph gusts with the outer band. Nothing west of I-95 yet.

Loop last 4hrs. 8:10am-12:10pm today

NHC has a 2nd landfall in North Carolina with Dorian as a Cat 2 Thursday morning between 5-9am

Hope coastal residents are ready for it. Maybe board up some windows? Build a dune barrier?

Random notes: With such a large eye and the high winds in the rings that surround that eye, it won't have to get too close to the GA, SC, NC coast to bring near or hurricane force winds onshore. But anywhere winds or wind gust could be around 40mph or higher is where I'd be prepared to potentially start loosing power and some scattered trees. 40 itself isn't strong, but the wear and tear even at that will start to bring scattered here and there power lines and trees down. More if higher. So if under those inland tropical storm watch/warnings (winds 39mph or higher) then decent chance someone you know or you may loose power. Not sure of your winds or if under tropical watch/warning? Visit www.weather.gov and type in city or zip code in the small search box on the left.
-If you end up in the giant calmer eye just remember the back side has to eventually come through.
-911 may not respond to you if winds are too high...you'll start seeing some of their social media feeds say they're sheltering in place until storm passes later.
-If you loose communications and don't know where storm is at then watch the wind/clouds...they all spin / come from a counter-clockwise motion around the center of the storm so winds will shift slowly throughout the event. Look on Google maps to see where North is and you can point in somewhat of a general direction of center/eye of storm based on wind/cloud direction.
-Don’t look at FL and say they’re fine so I’ll be fine...its coming closer and with higher surge and rains than FL saw. Similar to what we saw in Matthew in some respect.
