After 14 hours of being stationary in the Bahamas, Hurricane Dorian has started to track northwest. What does this mean for the States? In the coming hours, the now Category 3 storm will move very close towards the east coast of Florida. The mid and northeast areas of Florida will start to feel its effects with strong wind and rain. State officials are warning all residents to be prepared, stay indoors, and expect the unexpected.
While the storm was moving slower than we could have ever imagined, Governor DeSantis was prepared for anything. He called in over 5,000 FPL workers to be on stand-by, extra military and police officers, opened many shelters throughout the state, suspended tolls, and made mandatory evacuations.
