PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WMBB) — Dorian is a Category 1 Hurricane, expected to strengthen to a major hurricane over the coming days.

Hurricane Dorian is expected to bring two to four inches of rain to the central Bahamas. The northwestern Bahamas and coastal areas of the southeast U.S. can expect to see four to eight inches with isolated areas taking on 12 inches. 

Dorian’s impact may cause life-threatening flash floods.
