The National Hurricane Center is now predicting Hurricane Dorian could strengthen to a Category 4 storm as it makes landfall along the Atlantic coast.

A Category 4 hurricane produces devastating sustained winds of around 130 mph and produces heavy rain.

Hurricane Dorian is expected to make landfall this coming Labor Day somewhere along the Florida or Georgia coasts.
