    In 2017, the maps for Florida and evacuation up through the state and also out of Savannah and out of Charleston were totally red with Google traffic maps. It appears that Savannah and Charleston are starting, but Florida is still green as to traffic.

    People can be generous and helpful in tough times....but don't let your guard down. Scammers and perps who prey on others in vulnerable positions are also drawn to these situations. I don't want to be a Debbie Downer! Take help when needed, absolutely! Get out of harm's way! But keep WS wits about you too.

    I don't have a direct MSM link, but search on Twitter for "Marco City MP Michael Pintard" for a short video of water levels. He is the Minister of Agriculture in the Bahamas and the video is of the water lapping at his windows.

    WESH TV Orlando Weather Alert reports
    that the WNW turn has begun and will continue throughout the day. Once this is completed it'll
    be more clear how far off the coast of Fl. the storm will be.
    Although the wind field has enlarged and will
    cover more inland areas, the storm is expected
    to be downgraded to a Cat 3 as it moves up the coast into Central Fl.

    I have family in Oriental, NC, which is right on the water. They own and operate a marina. Hoping they can dodge the Dorian bullet.

    ETA: to all my Myrtle Beach WS friends, please stay safe!!

    Is it still over the Bahamas?! It's like it is hovering over that place. How exhausting and scary for the people there.

    MSNBC has shown a family home in Freeport, Bahamas.....the water is swirling around their second floor and coming up the stairs. I realized that I was holding my breath. It is so scary. Their plan includes tying everyone together with rope and life jackets. Pray for these folks.

    I don’t recall any hurricane in history ever doing that. Anyone?
    Irma was painfully slow & ever changing tracks, but this standing still for TWO DAYS- don’t know what to make of it!

    I will say though- if it ain’t movin’- I ain’t movin! Made reservations, but won’t exit until it’s clearly the safe thing to do. 400 miles away endlessly churning will not inspire me to pack the car!

    I just heard it's moving at 1 mph!! That's slower than a slow walk.

    The Braves extended an invitation Monday to anyone who has evacuated to Atlanta due to mandatory evacuations in anticipation of Hurricane Dorian to be their guests for 1 of 2 games this week.

    The Braves will offer complimentary tickets to all residents of coastal Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina who have been displaced due to mandatory evacuations.

    NASCAR’s Charlotte Motor Speedway announced Monday that evacuees seeking shelter from Hurricane Dorian are welcome to hunker down at the popular track north of Charlotte.

    The Rock City Campground and bathhouse facilities at the track are being made available at no cost to people trying to outrun the Category 4 hurricane, speedway spokesman Scott Cooper said.

    Our new friend Levi....

    Afternoon model trends for #Dorian:

    Not much change, with a track just offshore of Florida continuing to be the most likely outcome, with the threat of a landfall in the Carolinas.

    Still ~48 hours (2 days) of wobble-watching left. A more direct impact on FL cannot be ruled out. Levi Cowan on Twitter

    Thanks @PayrollNerd

    Praying for all my dear family, friends, and WS’s along the coast that this thing will take a swift turn away from the entire eastern coastline and all will be spared. Stay safe!

    Here’s our go-to weather guy in NJ

    https://www.weathernj.com/sept-2-dorian-to-impact-entire-us-east-coast/

    “After Florida Dorian is now expected to ride the entire SE US and Mid-Atlantic US coast through coastal Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina (OBX) as the system weakens from a major hurricane to a weaker category 1 hurricane. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a hurricane able to touch so much of the east coast. Dorian should impact Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina from Wednesday PM to Friday AM.”

    “The final area of concern is the Delmarva Peninsula and New Jersey for Friday. This has not changed since my discussion yesterday. Therefore I expect heavy rains, moderate winds (sustained 20-40mph with gusts to 60+mph) and minor-to-moderate coastal flooding on Friday for Delmarva, and SENJ.”

    “ Amazing to think that a storm system can wreak so much havoc from Florida to Maine.”
