Dorian inched west in the National Hurricane Center's latest advisory

As of 8 p.m. Saturday, Hurricane Dorian was still moving west at just 8 mph, per the National Hurricane Center's updated advisory.

At that time the storm remained a Category 4 with maximum sustained winds of 150 mph. That's just 7 mph shy of Category 5.
"Some fluctuations in intensity are likely," the hurricane center said, "but Dorian is expected to remain a powerful hurricane during the next few days."
A hurricane warning remained in effect for the northwestern Bahamas, and a hurricane watch was in effect for the Bahamas' Andros Island, the center said. A stretch of Florida's coast between Deerfield Beach and Sebastian Inlet was still under a tropical storm watch.
