Relief Available in Wake of Hurricane Dorian

Hurricane season is in full-gear as the outskirts of Hurricane Dorian travels up the east coast inching toward Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina. Millions of people have already evacuated but for the rest, it is a waiting game.

“The center of Dorian is forecast to move near or over the coast of South Carolina and North Carolina Thursday through Friday morning,” reports the National Hurricane Center.
