Although hurricane season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30, the vast majority of storms form from mid-August to late October. The peak is Sept. 10. Two weeks early of peak season, Gov. Ron DeSantis issued a state of emergency for 26 Florida counties on Wednesday, including all of South Florida, as Hurricane Dorian approaches.

Landfall on Labor Day as a Category 3 is increasingly likely, according to the National Hurricane Center’s 8 p.m. Wednesday weather update. READ MORE (flgov.com)
