As we continue to monitor the path of Hurricane Dorian and the impact it may have on our area, it is important to be prepared. The path of hurricanes can be unpredictable, so it is hard to definitively say how the Chapel Hill area will be affected at this point. However, it is always a good idea to be ready in case of severe weather that can cause power outages and make leaving your home or apartment unsafe. Please review the resources below so you are well prepared and informed.
