Hurricane Dorian: What slowdown means for Central Florida

Dorian to slowly move away from the Bahamas

ORLANDO, Fla. – Later Tuesday, Dorian should finally begin to move away from the Bahamas and start its northwesterly movement. Late Monday night, Dorian wobbled back east a few miles, which is better news for Florida. Impacts are expected to be close to what they were during Hurricane Matthew in 2016.
