Tropical Storm Dorian is an increasing hurricane danger for the Southeast U.S. over the Labor Day holiday weekend, with possible outcomes ranging from two landfalls – one in Florida followed by another on the Gulf Coast – to scraping the Carolina coast.
Dorian is forecast to become a formidably strong hurricane by this weekend.
