The coastal town of Stuart, Florida, is beginning to feel the effects of Hurricane Dorian, which has stopped 100 miles above Grand Baham.
"We get periodic outside rainstorms that come in and literally flood us. With strong, gusty, windy tropical forces. Short, heavy rainfall. And a few lightning flashes, as well as in the distance, from time to time," says the meteorologist at CNN's Derek Van Dam in Stewart.
"There were also transformers that blew behind us. We are lucky to have electricity still at this hotel where we are."
"As we get closer and closer to the Florida coast, it means that we will feel more and more of the winds. Threats there, obviously, gusts that can knock down some wooden limbs and power poles," Van Dam said.
