I am scared! We live in Boynton - right where it is forecast to hit as a Cat 4, and now they are saying, maybe even 5. Stay safe fellow Floridians!!

We live in Boca... it’s not looking good for us in southern Palm Beach County. But the latest advisory shows it slowing before the turn north. I’m praying it ends up skimming the coast like Matthew did!

Praying for all of you, and my other FL friends!

Jen, is your cruise still planned to leave as scheduled? Some in my Disney cruise page on Facebook are being able to reschedule their cruises!

You stay safe, as well. Looks like it is getting a bit better for us - hope it gets pushed back out into the ocean!

Well last night we finally received word they were going to push our cruise date back to leave on Wednesday and we would cruise a modified 4-day itinerary. Now hoping the storm moves away and doesnít affect the new plan!

I'm sorry you aren't getting to leave today, but am thankful you have a new plan. Praying the storm passes and doesn't affect your cruise.

According to the forecast, things are getting a little better. We are still watching Dorian's movement very closely and are fairly prepared if it changes.

I am praying Dorian will keep pushing out into the ocean and the rain and storm surge is very minor.

I will be grateful for buckets of rain with low wind over a CAT 4/5 any time. I won't complain sloshing around in the puddles...lol..

Stay safe all!

I'm glad everyone made it through the storm ok. We are about to get Hit with Dorian tomorrow (in Nova Scotia), it was down to a Cat 1 and has picked up speed and with hit us as a Cat 2. The last time a Cat 2 hit us was Juan back in 03 and it caused so much destruction! (I know cat 2 is probably nothing compared to what you all get hit with regularly, they are rough on our little Province that's not used to them. *sigh* I'm still hoping she takes a sudden turn and just misses us (as most hurricanes do), but as of right now it doesn't look like that's very likely.

Oh, man, Iím so sorry Jenn! I agree they hit you all up north so much harder because your homes, roads, trees, etc... the whole infrastructure of your city isnít like ours where we prepare and almost expect to get hit at least once a year I hope it passes and doesnít make landfall!

Itís pretty bad.... power went out around 2pm.... estimated time to get it back is around 11pm on Monday. Thatís just a general number.... there are multiple lines down in our area and we are probably last on a list of priorities being a small populated area. My hubby is a firefighter / first responder and the calls for his dept and surrounding depts have been coming in non stop. We just live a few houses down fr the hall so the kids and I went down to cook supper and charge up devices so we are all good.

Oh no! So sorry to hear things aren't going well, but glad to hear you all are safe. Hope the power will come back on sooner than what is expected!

The hard part is zero communication at home.... there is no cell service in our town and our house phone system is digital so no power equals no phone. So thankful for access to the hall to be able to jump on wifi to check on things. The rest of the Province looks to be in a huge mess.
