Hurricane Dorian is a cyclone that is extremely powerful and tropical. Currently, it is circling the SouthEastern United States and the Bahamas. It majorly affects the Caribbean nations and that is why the Kennedy space center has been shut down.
It is a huge hurricane and storm as it is quite scary and can devastate the nearby lands and lives of people. A tropical wave in the Southern Atlantic is developed by Dorian. It has affected the Caribbean, and the Mainland United States, namely Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina.
It made huge and irreparable impacts over the Windward Islands, Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Bahamas.
The closing of Kennedy Space Center even for a day can cost a huge amount of loss to them because they receive a huge footfall every day. But as it is a matter of safety, one has to take this step and for that, the tourists and local wanderers can at least patiently wait for a day.
