Second Strongest Atlantic Storm In History Is Heading North Towards Disney World

Hurricane Dorian has already battered the Bahamas but now it could be heading towards Disney World as it continues to move north.

According to the MailOnline, the storm - with winds of 185mph - is expected to move towards Florida later today (Monday).

Disney has advised that if a hurricane warning is issued by the National Hurricane Centre for the Orlando area within seven days of your scheduled arrival date, you can reschedule or cancel your package and most room-only reservations (booked directly with Disney) without any fees.


The catastrophic storm is moving at a pace of 1mph and Channel 9 meteorologist Brian Shields said: "This remains anything from a 'big miss' to 'riding right up the coast' - so we watch."

Forecasters indicate that the Category 5 storm will travel near the coast of Florida through Monday before swinging north and will largely stay at sea. But, according to Deadline, Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas could still suffer significant damage.


Residents in parts of South Carolina have already been ordered to leave the area due to fears for their personal safety.

Governor Henry McMaster has worked with local officials and made the decision to empty the coast with evacuation shelter locations opening and being made available on scemd.org.

The governor advised in a press release that evacuees should pack the following essential items in case the evacuation period is lengthy: required medications, adequate clothing and essential personal items.

Residents going to evacuation shelters should bring their own blankets, pillows, cots and special food items if they are on restricted diets.
