Should it reach the region of Iceland and the British Isles, it will reduce in strength to a typical temperate zone vortex. OMSZ says Nevertheless, Dorian will bring rain and some strong winds to northwestern Europe, and is also likely to drive breezy weather in to Hungary, napi.hu says.

The slow-moving hurricane was the most powerful category five storm to hit the Bahamas since records began, bringing sustained winds of up to 298 km/h at its peak, along with storm surges and flooding, and with at least 23 people dead, bbc.com says.
