HURRICANE DORIAN & FLOOD RISK CONCERNS
The City of Hallandale Beach continues to monitor the storm by following the National Hurricane Center for latest storm information and partnering with the County and State Emergency Management Divisions. Dorian is forecast to be a powerful and dangerous hurricane as it approaches the Florida peninsula Monday through Wednesday.
Despite the trends, the risk of destructive winds, storm surge and significant flooding continues, even if the center remains off shore. There remains the likelihood for a prolonged period of hazardous conditions to last for a couple of days due to slow storm movement.
Here are a few updates:
