Hurricane Warning for Sebastian, Grant, Micco, Vero Beach

A Hurricane Warning has been issued from the Jupiter Inlet to the Volusia/Brevard County Line.

A hurricane warning for our area does not mean Dorian will make landfall into Sebastian or Vero Beach. We are expected to get tropical force winds, and potential winds that are 75 mph. Winds 75+ are Category 1 status.

Indian River County officials have released shelter and evacuation information.

Mandatory evacuations for Brevard County residents who live on Barrier Islands and in mobile homes starting Monday, September 2, 2019, at 8:00 a.m.

Hurricane Dorian is 175 miles alway from West Palm Beach. Dorian is moving 5 mph with maximum sustained winds of 185 mph.

Dorian is expected to weaken back to a Category 4 while stalled over the Bahamas. The hurricane is expected to turn north in about two days, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The latest EURO model still shows Dorian tracking north after the Bahamas, sparing most of Florida.

Please continue to prepare for Hurricane Dorian. Do not remove your shutters until the storm has passed. Make sure you have plenty of water, food, and medication to last seven days. Board up any windows and listen to the advice given by emergency officials.

Dorian is still a very dangerous hurricane and should still be taken very seriously.

We would like to give a huge shoutout to Frank Nolan, manager of the McDonald’s in Roseland. Frank donated food to all the officers at Sebastian Police Department and deputies working in north county for the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office.

Stay tuned for more updates. We will be LIVE on our website, Facebook page, and our YouTube Channel all weekend at various times.
