Please stay weather aware this week. The track of Hurricane Dorian is uncertain, and its strength when/if it impacts Florida is still up in the air. It could potentially be a major hurricane and hit the east coast, and possibly still be strong when it makes its way across the state (if that’s the track it takes).
We won’t make that decision until Friday, when we have a better idea of the track/intensity/timeframe. Since our volunteers are just that–volunteers–if the storm looks like it might be a major storm directly impacting our area, we might make the call to stay closed so they can make their preparations at home.
