With Florida's growing population, Hurricane Dorian could be the first time some residents experience a storm of this magnitude; however, even longtime Florida residents can have questions or need help ahead of a storm.

According to the latest track from the National Hurricane Center, Hurricane Dorian is expected to make landfall along Florida's eastern coast as a major hurricane sometime after Monday and then head north along the peninsula.

To help put your nerves at ease News 6 and ClickOrlando.com will host a Hurricane Dorian hotline staffed with experts, including meteorologists, to answer questions about storm preparations and what to expect in your area.
