Millions of people are boarding up and evacuating as Hurricane Dorian continues to move northwest toward the Carolina coast Wednesday morning.

According to the National Hurricane Center, the center of Dorian, which is now a Category 2 hurricane with 105 mph winds, will move near or over the coast of South Carolina and North Carolina Thursday through Friday morning.

As of 7 a.m. Wednesday, Dorian continues to lash the east coast of central Florida. The core of the hurricane is moving nearly parallel to the east coast of central Florida.

Hurricane Dorian is moving nearly parallel to the Florida coastline as it moves north-northwest at 8 mph. Despite its slow movement to the north, this is the fastest the storm has moved in more than a day.

“The eyewall of Dorian continues to move away from Grand Bahama Island. Dangerous winds and life-threatening storm surge will continue over that island through this evening,” the National Hurricane Center said.
