Trees Thrash Around Violently as Hurricane Dorian Hits US Virgin Islands
Video posted to social media, Wednesday, August 28, showed trees thrashing violently as Hurricane Dorian hit St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The storm appeared to be heading for the Bahamas and the Florida coast, Thursday, August 29, spurred by warm Atlantic waters, as it threatens to strengthen to a dangerous Category 3 storm.
Dorian earlier sideswiped the Caribbean and Puerto Rico without causing major damage, but it is expected to strengthen and slam the Bahamas and the southeastern United States with rain, strong winds and life-threatening surf over the next few days, the Miami-based National Hurricane Center said in an advisory.
