SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

Though it remains a powerful storm, Hurricane Dorian is moving 
farther away from our area. For that reason, all tropical storm and 
storm surge warnings have been canceled in northeast Florida and 
southeast Georgia. A hurricane warning does remain in some of the 
coastal Atlantic waters, but conditions should be gradually 
improving across all area waters this morning. Nearly all of 
northeast Florida has seen rains come to an end, and this will 
expand into Georgia this morning. Winds may still be a bit breezy 
and gusty today, but should gradually diminish by evening.

In the storm's wake, rough conditions will persist today at the 
Atlantic beaches. Additionally, the northerly winds are expected to 
keep coastal flooding as an issue near the St. John's River. Be sure 
to exercise caution in these areas - it is likely a poor idea to go 
near the water again today, in spite of the improved weather.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* SURGE:
Little to no additional impacts are anticipated at this time 
across Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. Flooding near
the St. John's River may still occur with the northerly winds,
particularly near times of high tide.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------

* EVACUATIONS:
Do not enter evacuated areas until officials have 
given the all clear to return.

* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:

Check on your neighbors. If necessary, help them connect with their 
points of contact.

Problems with sewer backups can further contaminate standing flood 
waters. Keep children away from flood waters. Also, listen for boil 
water alerts as tap water may have become non-potable.

Be alert for potential flooding near rivers and streams where 
flooding may persist. Remain informed of the latest river forecasts 
and heed any flood watches and warnings.

Be alert for flooded roads which could be compromised or littered 
with debris.
