You probably didn't picture yourself spending your long weekend preparing for a major hurricane, did you?

It's nothing to celebrate, but I'd say many of you probably aren't going to work Tuesday. Am I right? 

Don't worry, I'll still be working -- in fact I'll be sleeping here -- which means you'll still be getting your daily newsletter.

Here's what's happening on ClickOrlando.com:


Latest track, models

Hurricane Dorian remains a very powerful Category 4 hurricane and is crawling on its path toward Florida's coast after slamming the islands of the Bahamas. Get the latest track and models for the storm to see its projected path.

Dorian's local impacts


Dorian's outer bands are expected to arrive in Central Florida before we know it, with hurricane-force winds following soon after. Find out how else Hurricane Dorian is expected to impact Central Florida and how soon.

Dorian's damage

Before heading toward Florida, Dorian is expected to continue its slow crawl from the Bahamas, where it unleashed massive flooding. There's been so much water there that authorities are urging people to find floating devices and grab hammers to break out of their attics if they need to. Get a look at the heartbreaking video coming out of the Bahamas as a result of the storm.
