The monster storm Hurricane Dorian was just under 100 miles off Daytona Beach in north-eastern Florida on Wednesday morning as people in the state and elsewhere began donating relief supplies for those affected in the catastrophic damage to parts of the Bahamas in the previous three days.

North and South Carolina are braced for the brunt of the storm next to slam into the coast there, after brushing past Georgia and north-east Florida.

Dorian, still a category 2 hurricane, is expected to bring dangerous storm surges, with the threat of flooding, very high winds and torrential rain to the Carolinas.
