Follow Instructions from Local Officials
- Hurricane Dorian is a Cat 5 hurricane, which means it could cause significant infrastructure damage to power, water and road systems.
- It’s not just the wind, but the water that poses risk. Storm surge and related inland flooding is often the greatest threat to life and property from a hurricane.
- Storm surge is the abnormal rising of water generated after a storm. When tropical storms or hurricanes cause storm surge, over 20 feet of water can be produced and pushed towards the shore and inland, destroying property and endangering lives in its path.
- Florida residents, tourists, and visitors are warned to heed all emergency guidance provided by local officials and avoid any areas under evacuation.
- Make an evacuation plan now – and if ordered to do so by local officials, EVACUATE!
