Hurricane Dorian Live Cam: Watch as Florida Coast and the Bahamas Prepare for Cat 4 Storm

Call it the calm before the storm, but Hurricane Dorian was classified as a Category 4 storm Friday evening, and it's aiming toward the Bahamas and then potentially the east coast of Florida.

Though things seem a little more docile at the moment, here are some live cameras streaming worldwide where you can see activity at beaches, bars and otherwise everyday, and night, activity along the path where Hurricane Dorian currently eyes.

First, here is a live cam in Freeport, Bahamas, from Port Nassau webcam. As this was initially published, it showed a bar with lighted fixtures on the side.

The National Hurricane Center said Friday evening that Hurricane Dorian has reached 130 mph of sustained winds and is now classified as a Category 4 storm. The storm reached Category 3 status just earlier on Friday, which made it a major hurricane.

Dorian sat in the western Atlantic Ocean on Friday night and just east of the Bahamas, where hurricane warnings had already been issued. Forecasters still do not know the true path Dorian will take as it aims for Florida's eastern coast. The forecast cone reaches from South Florida in Miami northward to Jacksonville and all areas in between.

"The biggest concern will be Dorian's slow motion when it is near Florida, placing some areas of the state at an increasing risk of a prolonged, drawn-out event of strong winds, dangerous storm surge and heavy rainfall," NHC said, according to the Sun-Sentinel in Ft. Lauderdale.

Even with time to evacuate, if they choose, this creates a difficult decision for resident of South Florida who might wish to evacuate north, where the storm could turn and land. And with so many residents and tourists potentially on the road for Labor Day weekend, it has created challenges for those trying to fill up their gas tanks.

As of Friday night, Dorin sat about 575 miles east of West Palm Beach and had a track moving slightly to the northwest. And though the hurricane's direct path still remains uncertain on Friday, the National Hurricane Center said "any small deviation in the track could bring the core of the powerful hurricane well inland over the Florida, keep it near the coast, or offshore."
