As the sun rose Sunday morning ahead of Labor Day, the level of danger was elevated for a monster storm approaching the U.S.

Hurricane Dorian is moving west at only 8 mph, inching toward the Bahamas, the islands and mainland U.S. facing catastrophic levels of destruction as meteorologists upgraded the storm to a Cat 5.

The National Weather Service confirmed landfall at Elbow Cay in the Abacos.

30 inches of rain and a 20 foot storm surge are exptected to wreak havoc on the islands, which have never taken a direct hit by a category 5 storm.

Andrew was the closest cat 5 to graze its shores in 1992.
