Make Sure Your Emergency Kit Is Up To Date


Hurricane Dorian reminds us all to make sure we have an emergency kit together and check it from time to time. We have PSA's airing every day on the air describing the importance of emergency preparations, just in case. 24/7 News Source reports that Dorian is on the move again.

(Miami, FL) -- Hurricane Dorian is gradually moving away from Grand Bahama Island and picking up speed.

The National Hurricane Center's Ken Graham says the Category 2 storm is now tracking to the northwest at about five miles per hour. Dorian is packing sustained winds near 110 miles per hour as it slowly moves north. Forecasters expect the hurricane to move dangerously close to Florida's east coast late today through Wednesday evening. 

Meanwhile, Florida's busiest airport is quiet today. Orlando International Airport ceased operations early this morning as Hurricane Dorian approached. Airport officials say strong winds could pose a safety hazard for passengers and employees. Orlando Sanford International Airport plans to reopen at 1 p.m. tomorrow. Fort Lauderdale International and North Perry airports are back open, but Palm Beach International Airport remains closed, as does Daytona Beach International Airport. At Jacksonville International, airport officials are telling passengers to check with their airlines about their flights.
