There's a list for everything

Don't have distance traveled yet but as of this AM named storm for 14 days, that's tied for 3rd longest hurricane status days by an August forming storm & 2nd shortest distance traveled by a Cat3+ in 24hours (25miles in 24hrs)...Hurricane Betsy holds shortest distance record at 12miles. (stats via Philip Klotzbach)

Sat 7Sept2019 11aEDT/AST: Winds 85mph, moving quickly NE 29mph(46km/h), pressure 953mb. Located 205miles(330km) SSE Eastport Maine US, 215miles(350km) SW of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Hurricane force winds up to 105miles(165km), TS winds 310miles(500km). Rain 3-5in, isolated 7in Nova Scotia, 2-4in New Brunswick & Prince Edward Island, 1-2in Newfoundland & E Quebec.

Transitioning into Extra-Tropical Low. Regardless if officially hits as hurricane or not, effects the same at this point. Deepening pressure, becoming a large Low pressure N Atlantic storm merging with a front. The name 'Dorian' will be gone shortly from the weather maps.

For any wondering about 'retiring' names, that's determined by the WMO (World Meteorological Organization) made up of over 190 counties/territories who meet early spring (Mar/Apr) to determine that.

Its nice to know Sean Connery and his wife are fine..... They were at thier house all thru the storm I read!!
The storm is Cat 2 and power outages have started
“Earlier there were some questions as to when Dorian would undergo a transition to a powerful extratropical low, but as of the latest model guidance it looks like Dorian will remain a hurricane as it makes landfall in Nova Scotia Saturday,” he said.

“In fact, not only remaining a hurricane but intensifying to a Category 2 storm bringing sustained winds of 150 km/h with higher wind gusts likely, especially along exposed coastal areas.”

For the East Coast of the U.S. this really wasn't a very spectacular system after a lot of waiting and panic ahead of it. It's funny how that goes. Michael ended up being much worse than a lot of people had anticipated, now you got one again that left the U.S. mostly unscathed. One can only hope that people aren't letting their guard down.


Also, GFS sees a massive high pressure area over the Eastern Atlantic basically keeping the Dorian leftovers away from Europe, looks like it may hit Iceland and then make its way east/northeast missing the British Isles and the Scandinavian peninsula.

Here’s video of crane falling in Halifax, no word if it was locked or unlocked...usually left to freely spin at the top to prevent this.
