UU St. Pete InfoNet: Hurricane Dorian

UUSP Shelter Open During Hurricane Dorian

It looks like Hurricane Dorian may not be a huge threat to Pinellas County. Nonetheless UUSP will have its doors open as a shelter to those who need it.


The Latest on Hurricane Dorian (as of 6 pm Saturday)

  • The National Hurricane Center’s forecast track has shifted north and east, off Florida’s east coast, and Pinellas County is no longer in the five day cone. 
  • Even if the storm stays east, Pinellas County residents and visitors may experience windy conditions and heavy rains. If the storm shifts west, Pinellas County could experience greater impacts.
  • Based on the current forecast, Pinellas County’s greatest impacts (rain, wind) would be felt on Tuesday.

Volunteers for UUSP sheltering will meet after the service tomorrow at 12 noon to discuss preparations. If you'd like to volunteer, please let Paul Burnore or Jack Donovan know at plburnore@gmail.com and jfdonovan@bellsouth.net.


If you think you'll need assistance during the heavy rains and wind that are now predicted for Tuesday, please let us know. Meanwhile I'd suggest everyone prepare a "hurricane kit" just in case. This and other up-to-date information on Hurricane Dorian's status can be found at "wusfnews.org".
