Just as many are doing so now, the City of Hallandale Beach is paying close attention to the storm by following the National Hurricane Center for latest storm information.
City staff encourages residents and business owners to make necessary preparations for the anticipation of Hurricane Dorian.
At this moment, Residents should be in the process of implementing their hurricane plans. Now is a good time to gather necessary items such as gasoline for vehicles, water for consumption, and non-perishable food items, in case there is a loss of power.
