Hurricane Dorian intensified to a Category 5 with vicious 180 mph winds on Sunday morning, making it the strongest hurricane in modern records to batter the Northwestern Bahamas with howling winds, surging seas and a threat of torrential rains, leading to mass evacuations on the islands.

The storm now boasts dangerous wind gusts of over 200 mph as it moved over the Bahamas creating ‘catastrophic conditions’ in the Abacos islands, as an official hurricane watch is issued for the east coast of Florida.

The monster hurricane’s path moved slightly towards Florida on Sunday morning, putting parts of South Florida back in the danger zone for a possible landfall, as the storm barrels towards the southeastern coast of the U.S.

Dorian hit the Bahamian islands Sunday morning and the eyewall of the catastrophic storm slammed the Abaco Islands with devastating winds first, according to the NHC.

After parking over the Bahamas, the storm will aim north towards south Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas – where states of emergencies are in effect.

According to forecast models, Dorian will make a turn to the north and make landfall in the U.S. as early as Tuesday afternoon.

On Sunday morning President Donald Trump retweeted a warning message by Governor Ron DeSantis that said Dorian ‘is now an extremely dangerous Category 5 storm, with sustained winds of 180 mph. If you live along the East Coast, please be prepared, gather your supplies and be ready to evacuate if ordered.’
