We are supposed to feel the effects of Hurricane Dorian between Wednesday at 2 AM until Wednesday at 2 PM. Experts say we can expect gusty winds, showers and flash flooding in Central Florida. Just in case you lose power, have a tree come down or need gas, I wanted to put together a cheat sheet of numbers and sites that will come in handy.

 

In Orange County for non-emergency help, dial 311.

In Seminole County, the Citizens Information line is open 7AM-7PM, call 407-665-0000. You can also text DORIAN to 888-777 to get text alerts in Seminole County

Price gouging can be reported to 866-966-7226.

If you're in need of gas, you can use GasBuddy.com which is a free tool to find gas locally or report who has gas near you to help others.

If you lose power and use your generator, DO NOT use it indoors or in closed spaces. Keep it away from windows, vents and AC units.

 

If you lose power, you can report it to:

Duke Energy- 800-228-8485
