Areas further north like Georgia and the Carolinas could also bear the brunt of Dorian

Source: CNN

Dorian is now an even stronger 145 mph hurricane, category 4 storm, according to the 8 a.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center.

It is likely to remain a very intense hurricane today as it moves towards the northern Bahamas, where hurricane warnings remain in effect.

...snip...

The forecast track, which was shifted east in an earlier advisory, no longer shows a landfall in Florida. But Floridians should not relax just yet.

Much of Florida remains in the “cone of uncertainty” meaning even a small shift would bring the very dangerous core of the storm inland to Florida.

1. I followed the projected track on Windy.com

and it looks like it will just hug the coastline as it moves North. This could be a dangerous storm for a great many people.

6. Been following on windy.com too

In future trajectory it follows the coastline all the way up to New England.

2. If a bad storm follows the eastern coast, we usually get bad rain

All the way here in East Tennessee.

But sometimes that is the only rain we get in the summer and it prevents the forest fires.

3. I have a brother living in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

They had to evacuate the last time a hurricane came through.
Although there was a lot of flooding in the area, their home suffered no damage.

4. Uh-oh. I hereby forbid the storm to cause major disruption in the Atlanta area

TFT and the Parody Project are working on new material, and I don't want there to be any delays.

7. North Carolina doesn't count?

How is it going to stay offshore when this track is showing it hitting North Carolina?

8. I meant of Florida. And the way it's starting to curve, it may miss the Carolinas as well. n/t
