Hurricane Dorian -- expected to barrel into Florida early next week -- has strengthened into a major category 3 storm on Friday, US meteorologists announced.

Dorian has become an "extremely dangerous hurricane" packing maximum sustained winds of 115 miles (185 kilometers) per hour, the Miami-based National Hurricane Center said.

The storm is projected to intensify even more before it makes landfall in the southern US state of Florida on Monday or Tuesday, the NHC said.
