The Pelican Bay Foundation is currently making preparations and putting precautions in place ahead of Hurricane Dorian. While the storm is now projected to make landfall early Tuesday morning on the East coast of the state, we are still observing the storm and weather forecasts closely. Tropical Storm force winds are projected to reach Southwest Florida sometime on Sunday, which is a concern for the Foundation. We are preparing for such winds now. Members are encouraged to take individual precautions to shop now for water, nonperishable foods, supplies, and fuel. The Foundation will continue to update members on any developments and on hours of operation for the coming days.
