Hurricane Dorian is currently on track to make landfall in Florida on Sunday or Monday. Dorian could be the strongest hurricane to hit Central Florida in over 30 years, and a state of emergency has been declared in Florida. While we hope and pray that the storm will divert or weaken, I strongly urge you to prepare NOW for major impacts. Please visit https://www.ready.gov/hurricanes and https://floridadisaster.org/for important information to keep you and your family safe. Remember, if ordered to evacuate, do so immediately.
Below, you will find resources to help you stay safe before, during, and after the storm. Your first steps should be:
