Bahamas braces for Hurricane Dorian

An already dangerous Hurricane Dorian has intensified yet again as it closes in on the northern Bahamas, threatening to batter islands with Category 5-strength winds, pounding waves and torrential rain.

The National Hurricane Centre in Miami said Dorian's maximum sustained winds have increased to 160mph, up from 150mph.

It is moving west at 8mph.

"Devastating hurricane conditions" are expected in the Abaco Islands early on Sunday and across Grand Bahama island later in the day, the centre said.

Millions from Florida to the Carolinas kept a wary eye on Dorian, meanwhile, amid indications it would veer sharply north-eastward after passing the Bahamas and track up the US south-east seaboard.
