Gov. Ron DeSantis provides updates on Hurricane Dorian.
Dorian's slow crawl, estimated at about 1 mph as of early Monday morning, placed it within 115 miles of West Palm Beach, Florida. But forecasters remained unsure of whether, or where, it might make landfall in the U.S. after it makes an expected turn to the north.
The National Hurricane Center warned that life-threatening storm surges and dangerous hurricane-force winds were expected along the east coast of Florida through mid-week.
"Only a slight deviation to the left of the official forecast would bring the core of Dorian near or over the Florida east coast. Residents in these areas should continue to monitor the progress of Dorian and listen to advice given by local emergency officials," it said in a statement at 11:00 p.m. ET on Sunday evening.
