(CNN)Hurricane Dorian is barely moving as it continues to lash Grand Bahama Island with fierce winds.
As it lingers over the Bahamas -- just 100 miles away from West Palm Beach -- the storm is carving a path of devastation: knocking homes to the ground and claiming the lives of at least five people, among them an 8-year-old boy.
Dorian -- now downgraded to a Category 3 storm with 120 mph winds -- will remain stationary over the island through late Tuesday morning when it will begin to head north, CNN Meteorologist Robert Shackelford said. It is still forecast to approach Florida Tuesday night through Wednesday evening, pass very near the Georgia and South Carolina coasts Wednesday night and then roll "near or over" the North Carolina coast late Thursday, the National Hurricane Center said.
