Charlotte County did not receive any major effects from Hurricane Dorian other than rain from a passing band. Please refer to the National Hurricane Center for the most up to date information. The Bahamian people and those on the east coast of the US (and possibly Canada) are in our thoughts as Dorian continues his path northward.
During an event:
