Maximum sustained winds are at 120 mph and the storm is still crawling across the Atlantic Ocean at 1 mph. The minimum central pressure is 952 mb.

Dorian is a Category 3 storm, only an improvement considering the comparison to its former muscle-bound Cat 5 self that topped out with 185-mph winds and 220-mph gusts.
