Our neighbors in Florida need us
The National Weather Center predicts that Dorian is likely to remain an extremely dangerous hurricane as it moves near the northwestern Bahamas and approaches the Florida peninsula through the weekend. If Dorian makes landfall as a Category 4 storm, it would be the strongest storm to hit Florida’s Atlantic coast since Hurricane Andrew made landfall as a Category 5 storm in 1992. Andrew is blamed for 65 fatalities and more than $27 billion worth of damage. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) expects Dorian to impact the majority of Florida.
