First Alert Weather: The peak of the 2019 hurricane season is today

Crews work to restore power and clear debris left in Dorian's wake Power outages continue to dwindle days after Dorian

The source says relief teams are working to clean up fallen trees on Wellington Street in the city of Halifax, two days after Hurricane Dorian hit the Atlantic coast of Canada.

The hurricane center expects it to track to the northwest, into the Bahamas and over the Florida peninsula over the next few days.

Moving into Thursday and Friday, higher pressure aloft and at the surface will advance into the region from the northeast allowing for more sun, less clouds and very slight rain chances at best.

Computer models so far are projecting it to stay a tropical wave but the National Weather Service in Mobile has its eye on it already just in case.

According to CNN, at least 43 people, including an eight-year-old boy, have died due to the storm and that number is expected to rise. The official death toll in the Bahamas is 44, but as The New York Times reported yesterday, "The extent of the damage ...in the Abaco Islands is so great, the work of assessing it so arduous and the Bahamian government so overwhelmed that a full accounting of the missing and dead may not be known for weeks or even months". It's expected to move westward across the tropical Atlantic Ocean for the next several days, but its development chances for the next five days have weakened overnight from 40 to 30 percent.

The Atlantic hurricane season began June 1 and ends November 30.

All of these factors in place typically allow for one or more tropical systems to be active on the 10th day of September.

Both North and SC received Hurricane Dorian as a Category 1 storm Friday morning, while Virginia was hit as well. Barry came ashore in Louisiana on July 13 as a Category 1 hurricane.

On Sunday N.S. Power C.E.O Karen Hutt called the situation a "worst case scenario".

The NOAA's hurricane season outlook is for overall seasonal activity and is not a landfall forecast.
