Hurricane Dorian became a powerful category four storm overnight.
Officials in Key West, Florida are now asking visitors to leave if they can due to life-threatening flooding in low-lying areas.
And it’s not just Florida that needs to prepare.
According to the National Hurricane Center, Dorian’s forecasted track has shifted East, possibly bringing Georgia and the Carolinas into the path of the storm later this week.
Despite Dorian’s shift, much of Florida and the southeast coast remain in the forecast “cone of uncertainty,” meaning landfall is still possible anywhere along the East Coast of Florida and points farther North.
Sign1News will be posting live press conferences on storm updates and warnings from local, state and federal officials with sign language interpretation on our app, website, YouTube and Facebook page.
