A man from Puerto Rico killed the preparation for Dorian, which could hit Florida as category 3



An 80-year-old man died in Puerto Rico when he fell off a ladder preparing his home for hurricane Dorian, authorities said Wednesday. The storm hit Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands on Wednesday because, according to forecasters, a Category 3 hurricane could have surfaced in Florida this weekend.

A police spokesman in Bayamón confirmed to NBC News that a person had died in connection with Dorian. The police told Telemundo PR, NBC News' subsidiary in San Juan, that in preparation for the storm, the man climbed a ladder to clear the sewers in his home as he slipped and suffered a fatal head injury.

] Dorian hit a hurricane near St. Thomas Island on the US Virgin Islands Wednesday afternoon, according to the National Hurricane Center. There were several observations of hurricane force winds in St. Thomas, according to the hurricane center. An elevated weather station on Buck Island, south of St. Thomas, reported persistent winds of 1

32 km / h and a gust of 175 km / h.

It was expected that the storm would continue near or beyond the US and the British Virgin Islands in the next few hours Wednesday and then across the Atlantic Ocean east of the southeastern Bahamas on Thursday and Friday, the Hurricane Center said at 17.00 Wednesday.

The hurricane center said Dorian was gradually moving away from the northeastern Caribbean Sea and was expected to become "a dangerous hurricane in the western Atlantic Ocean".

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis declared Wednesday afternoon a state of emergency.

"It is important for Floridians on the East Coast to closely monitor this storm," he said in a statement. "Every Florida resident should be provided with food, water and medicines for seven days and have a disaster plan."

The Hurricane Center predicted that the storm would continue to intensify and become a dangerous category 3 hurricane 72 hours and in that intensity until landing.

"There is every indication that this Labor Day weekend is a major hurricane near or over the Florida Peninsula," the center said.
