Today, Governor Ron DeSantis declared a State of Emergency for counties in the path of Hurricane Dorian, inclusive of Miami-Dade County. 


The National Hurricane Center projects Hurricane Dorian will make landfall on Florida's East Coast as a major hurricane. Due to the uncertainty in the track of this storm, every resident along Florida's East Coast needs to be ready!


Everyone should have 7 days of supplies, including water and medicine and should have an evacuation plan.
