Fortunately for the family, Dorian isn't expected to make a drastic splash in Jacksonville, but rather slingshot around the coast and make landfall in the Carolinas, according to The Weather Channel. More than 1 million people were warned to leave in the Carolinas, and a round of evacuations was ordered in coast Virginia as the storm drew closer.

The Category 2 storm has devastated the Bahamas, where rescue crews have only begun taking the full measure of the damage.

About 830,000 people were under mandatory evacuation orders on the SC coast alone.

In Charleston, South Carolina, a historic port city of handsome antebellum homes on a peninsula that is prone to flooding even from ordinary storms, Dorian toppled some 150 trees, swamped roads and brought down power lines, officials said, but the flooding and wind weren't almost as bad as feared.

The hurricane's approach coincided with a rising tide in the afternoon that forecasters said could worsen flooding in the city.

Hurricane Dorian is now a category two storm located some 230 miles south south-west of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina with sustained winds of 105 miles per hour.

Oh yes, he wife took pictures and posted about it! . No immediate injuries were reported.

At 11 a.m. EDT Thursday, the hurricane was centered about 50 miles southeast of Charleston, moving north at 8 mph with winds of 110 mph extending about 60 miles outward.

The hurricane, newly strengthened to a Class three storm, started battering SC on Thursday.
