Hurricane Dorian is expected to bring “life-threatening storm surges” up the US east coast after causing destruction and at least 20 deaths in the Bahamas.
The category three storm is currently lashing the coast of the Carolinas as it moves slowly north. Tens of thousands of people are without power.
Residents from Georgia up to Virginia are being warned to listen to emergency advice.
Dorian weakened after hitting the Bahamas but has now strengthened again.
It currently has maximum sustained winds of 115mph.
