The downside to Dorian not making landfall...

...is that it won't dissipate. The current models show it remaining at hurricane strength as late as Thursday.

1. Nobody should be letting their guard down, they still dont know where this one is going

Looks like the Bahamas could be taking a direct hit, then pray it turns north soon if u are on the FL east coast

2. Shouldn't be that much of a difference

Half the storm will still be over land.

And even if true, the trade off should be worth it.

3. As long as the eye stays over warm water it should retain it's strength.

Unless dry air sucks the strength out of it like it has for other hurricanes.

4. This could possibly happen. My prayer is currently partially answered on the plus side.

Now for the remainder....
