Weather forecasters say Hurricane Dorian's winds have decreased slightly to 155 mph. The storm is now a powerful Category 4.

The storm is currently moving West across the Northern Bahama Islands at 1 mph. The slow movement of the storm, according to the NHC, will add to the "catastrophic winds and storm surge" which have been ongoing since Sunday, September 1.

Video and images from the Bahamas show some of the devastation as the storm continues to inch dangerously towards the Florida peninsula.

Water began to rise as Dorian slowly moved across Grand Bahama Island Sunday night and Monday morning. Videos show water from storm surge entering homes and causing damage.

Dorian's strong winds have caused extreme damage across the islands, tearing apart buildings and tossing cars and debris.

Hurricane hunters with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration shared video of a fly-through of Hurricane Dorian to their Facebook page.
