Hurricane Dorian was still lashing the east coast of the US on Friday morning, threatening to bring storm conditions to multiple states even as it failed to make landfall and spared the US from the worst of its wrath.
As of 2 a.m. ET on Friday, Dorian was a Category 1 storm bringing hurricane conditions and “wind gusts near hurricane force” in parts of North Carolina. It was also continuing to bring tropical storm conditions to South Carolina.
A hurricane warning was also in effect in between the North Carolina/Virginia border and Delaware’s Fenwick Island.
The storm was moving northeast at around 15 mph (24 kmph).
The storm has been tough to predict, and it ended up only grazing Florida and Georgia, though it has totally devastated the Bahamas.
The hurricane’s remaining potential track is shown above on Google’s Crisis Map, which is based on US government data.
