ERIC THAYER – New York Times

A flooded street in Charleston, S.C., as Hurricane Dorian churns off the coast of Georgia on Wednesday. The National Hurricane Center warned of "life-threatening" storm surge with the storm.

CHARLESTON, S.C. - A weakened but still deadly Hurricane Dorian crept up the Southeastern seaboard Wednesday, and millions were ordered to evacuate as forecasters said near-record levels of seawater and rain could swamp the coasts of Georgia and the Carolinas.

The storm, which ravaged the Bahamas with more than a full day of devastating wind and rain, had weakened substantially - dropping from a Category 5 storm to a Category 2. But it still had dangerously high winds and threatened to swamp low-lying regions from Georgia to southeastern Virginia on its trek northward.
