Hurricane Dorian is starting to pull away from Florida but is also strengthening on Wednesday afternoon. The hurricane is now a Category 3 with 115 mph winds. Thankfully, hurricane-force winds are staying offshore, but tropical storm winds are impacting the coastline from Jacksonville, FL through Georgia and South Carolina. Dorian still has a chance to make landfall in South Carolina or North Carolina over the next couple of days if the storm’s track takes a wobble. In addition, A tropical wave coming off of Africa has a 50 percent chance to develop in the next five days, according to the National Hurricane Center. This is actually down 10 percent from the Wednesday morning outlook.
A North Fort Myers man was found dead and decaying in the woods Wednesday afternoon. It happened just off Woods Road near Business 41.
