Miami – Hurricane Dorian maintains the maximum sustained winds of 90 mph as it approaches the coasts of Massachusetts (USA) heading to Canada after having landed this morning at Cape Hatteras (North Carolina).
Dorian travels northeast at 24 mph and is 330 miles south southwest of Nantucket (Massachusetts) and 715 miles southwest of the city of Halifax (Canada).
The hurricane caused heavy rains in the United States that left up to 800 people trapped on an island in North Carolina and more than 200,000 without power, as it moved to Canada along the east coast.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in its most recent newsletter that it expects this Sunday to keep the movement to the northeast with an additional increase in forward speed.
The NHC, based in Miami, predicts that Dorian, which devastated some islands of the Bahamas with winds of 185 mph this week, will have "some strengthening" until Saturday or Sunday night, when it will become a post-tropical cyclone with hurricane winds while near or over eastern Canada.
On the other hand, tropical storm Gabrielle gained strength again after becoming a tropical post-cyclone in the eastern Atlantic.
Gabrielle moves northwest to 17 mph in a west-northwest direction with maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour.
It is located about 1,010 miles southwest of the Azores.
