Hurricane Dorian Is Slated To Approach The Georgia Coast With 100 MPH Winds And Rain
Hurricane Dorian is anticipated to become a Category 3 hurricane by the time it makes landfall on the mainland but has left forecasters scratching their heads this past week.

How should Georgians prepare based on the hurricane’s path right now?
Resources providing up-to-date coverage of the storm include CBS News and CNN. A few tips to help you prepare for hurricane season in Florida include:

Update your insurance policies.
Protect your home with storm shutters.
Cut down all weak branches and trees in your surrounding area.
