Twenty-six counties, nearly the entirety of Florida's east coast, were part of the state of emergency and on Thursday, DeSantis said there would likely be additional counties added.

At present, the hurricane is located in the Atlantic Ocean while heading for South US coast and can be marked as Cat I. The system is showing signs of further strengthening.

Dorian's maximum sustained winds have increased from 85 miles per hour on Wednesday night to 115 miles per hour as of 2 p.m. on Friday morning, according to the Hurricane Center.

"If it makes landfall as a Category 3 or 4 hurricane, that's a big deal", he said.

Now a Category 1 hurricane, Dorian took aim at the Bahamas and the Florida coast on Thursday after sideswiping the Caribbean without doing major damage. At that point, well-built framed homes could sustain severe damage and lose most of the roof structure and exterior walls. The heavy rain may become a significant inland hazard, particularly if the storm's forward motion slows down as is now forecast.

"The risk of devastating hurricane-force winds along the Florida east coast and peninsula late this weekend and early next week continues to increase, although it is too soon to determine where the strongest winds will occur", the Hurricane Center wrote.

But Columbia and the Midlands should expect to be affected by the powerful storm.

DeSantis said the timely message from those arrests is: "It's your responsibility to make sure you have a plan in place to protect those folks".

Dorian is expected to strengthen and slam the Bahamas and the southeast United States with rain, strong winds and life-threatening surf over the next few days.

"But beyond that there are a lot of mixed signals because we don't have a good agreement on exactly how that high to the north is going to evolve".

Puerto Rico's former governor Ricardo Rossello was forced to resign last month in part because of criticism over his handling of the emergency created two years ago by Hurricane Maria.
