HURRICANE DORIAN POMPANO BEACH DEERFIELD BEACH UPDATE:  Monday, September 2, 2019. 11:05 AM.  Broward County remains under a Tropical Storm Watch  including Deerfield Beach, Pompano Beach, Lighthouse Point and Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.  Currently Dorian continues to move very slowly- as slow as 1 mph through the Bahamas, where it has reduced slightly to a Category 4 storm.  Winds still exceed 150 mph.  The projected path shows slight improvement for northeast Broward.

While most projections show the storm turning to the north, we still are far from being out of danger.  Heavy rain, winds and flooding are still expected in the North Broward Coastal Communities   When Hurricane Dorian comes close to us it is still likely to be a Category 4 storm, even if it is off the shore and not a direct hit.  It is likely we will start feeling some effects of the storm late on Monday continuing into Tuesday and perhaps into Wednesday.  Parts of Northern Palm Beach County have reported wind gusts exceeding 40 mph.

This afternoon, Broward County Emergency Management announced that we are now under a [Tropical Storm Watch in our area, and can expect strong Tropical Force winds.
