Tracking Dorian: Dorian gains intensity

Kaitlyn Bowers, Video Director

While the worst may have passed for Puerto Rico, Florida is still gearing up for what could be the worst storm to hit Central Florida in three decades.

Currently, the hurricane is still projected to become a Category 3 storm by the time it hits Florida. It remains a Category 1 storm right now. If winds hit 96 mph, it will be classified as a Category 2 storm.

The path of the hurricane has changed slightly. The biggest difference is that the track has made a slight turn for the south and is slowing down in its path to Florida, although the intensity remains the same. Because of this, the Florida Keys will likely not be hit by the storm, but the east coast of Georgia and North Florida might have to worry about getting hit.

This is the projected storm track as of 5 am Thursday:
