FEMA Urges Residents to Remain Vigilant



Hurricane Dorian is expected to bring life-threatening storm surges, with dangerous winds and significant infrastructure damage to much of the Florida peninsula and upward along the east coast states beginning Monday. Evacuations have been issued in some areas in Florida.  Additional evacuation orders may follow. If you are in the path of Hurricane Dorian, please heed the warnings of authorities, fill your tank, stock your vehicle with supplies, and if ordered to evacuate, GO!  

The forecasted track for Dorian may change quickly. Hurricane Dorian is a big storm regardless of where it makes final landfall. The federal, state and tribal governments are preparing for a big response. CEN’s Founder and President Mary Marr says: “The National CEN team will be assessing the areas most underserved, communicating with our field team, and responding to survivors spiritual, emotional, and physical needs. We will be issuing CEN advisories as needed through recovery.”

CEN'S National Safety Security Director, Kurt Jordan says: "As the path and direction of #HurricaneDorian still seems to change consistently, the love and mercy of our Heavenly Father does not. #Emergencypreparedness is key. Although the threat may change, as Christians we must be prepared spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically through constant prayer and preparations to stand ready to give an answer for the Hope of Christ within.”
