Dorian is centered about 1,425 miles (2,290 kilometers) east of the northern Leeward Islands and is moving west-northwest near 20 mph (32 kph).

Meanwhile in the Pacific, Tropical Storm Flossie has strengthened a little. That storm's maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 kph). Flossie is centered about 1,640 miles (2,640 kilometers) east of Hilo, Hawaii, and is moving west near 18 mph (30 kph).

There are currently no land threats from either storm.
