HURRICANE DORIAN POMPANO BEACH DEERFIELD BEACH UPDATE:  Monday, September 2, 2019. 9:30 PM.  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 through the Bahamas, where it is holding at a Category 4 storm.  Winds still exceed 140 mph.  Forecasters don’t expect the storm to veer to the north by tomorrow, well before it hits Broward County.

Even with the expectation of the storm turning to the north, we still are far from being out of danger.   The storm is very large and its outer bands will still hit our area.  Boca Raton and north is under a Hurricane Watch.  And, we needn’t remind you that the city just south of Boca is Deerfield Beach.  Of course, Dorian does not have GPS and doesn’t cut itself off just because of a county line.    Heavy rain, winds and flooding are still expected in the North Broward Coastal Communities   When Hurricane Dorian comes close to us, the center of the storm is still likely to be a Category 3 or 4.  It is likely we will start feeling some effects of the storm later tonight continuing into Tuesday and perhaps into Wednesday.   Palm Beach County cities have already reported wind gusts exceeding 40 mph.

We are experiencing “King Tides”.  These are higher than normal high tide levels unrelated to the hurricane.  Combined with winds and rain from the storm,  this will increase the likelihood of flooding.  High tide in the North Broward area will be around 11:30 tonight and tomorrow.

It’s probably safe to say we avoided a big one but we still haven’t even begun to feel the effects that will be caused by  Dorian.
