Weather forecasters said Dorian, currently upgraded to a Category 3 hurricane, could strengthen into a powerful Category 4 storm before it makes landfall but there was a great amount of uncertainty about where it would hit. Dorian is forecast to make landfall September 2. (Photo by Eva Marie UZCATEGUI / AFP) (Photo credit should read EVA MARIE UZCATEGUI/AFP/Getty Images)
