After battering the Bahamas as a Category 2 storm, Dorian has regained strength and is currently a Category 3 hurricane located approximately 80 miles off the coast of Charleston, South Carolina. Winds and rain have already left more than 200,000 properties in Georgia and South Carolina without power. Maximum sustained winds were clocked at 115 mph, and the storm is moving north at 8 mph.
Hurricane conditions are expected along parts of the South Carolina coast this morning and along the North Carolina coast later today. The National Hurricane Center reports that Dorian may still potentially make landfall today or tomorrow, with dangerous storm surges and damaging winds possible along a large portion of the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic coasts. Hurricane warnings and evacuations continue for Georgia up through southern Virginia.
If your drivers are located in the updated projected path of the storm, please exercise caution and heed all local forecast updates and evacuation instructions. As always, if you require any fleet support during this time, please contact ARI for assistance.
