North Carolina’s governor: It’s time to “take Dorian seriously”
Gov. Roy Cooper has ordered emergency measures ahead of Hurricane Dorian, telling North Carolinians they need to be prepared for the storm.
The Governor’s office said his executive order lifted restrictions on transportation to “ensure critical needs like fuel, medicine and water can get to those affected by Hurricane Dorian if it hits North Carolina” and “lifts restrictions on equipment needed to repair utilities and remove debris” to help mobilization after the storm has passed.
In a news release, Cooper said: Now is the time to prepare and take Dorian seriously. This storm could cause serious damage and bring dangerous conditions to our state. I urge everyone to follow the forecast and listen to their local first responders.
