Hurricane Dorian impacting travelers nationwide, including in San Diego

Oklahomans deployed to Florida for Hurricane Dorian in position as storm threatens U.S.

Hurricane Dorian battered the Bahamas with ferocious wind and rain on Sunday, the monstrous Category 5 storm wrecking towns and homes as it churned on an uncertain path toward the U.S. coast where hundreds of thousands were ordered to evacuate.

Now as forecasters say Dorian might not just hit Florida, but the Carolinas and Georgia too, Bush says she is not surprised. American Red Cross of Southeast Mississippi Executive Director John McFarland said, "This is the time of year, mid-August to mid-September is when we are most vulnerable".

IFRC said that hundreds of Red Cross volunteers, emergency response vehicles and more than 30 truckloads of relief supplies were being mobilised to help people living in the path of the hurricane.

Airlines have canceled 600 Monday flights because of Hurricane Dorian as of 6 p.m.

Iran confirms "explosion" in satellite launcher
The tests have taken on new importance to the USA amid the maximalist approach to Iran taken by President Trump's administration. Teheran also says it hasn't violated the United Nations resolution as it only "called upon" Teheran not to conduct such tests.

The staff members and volunteers who were sent over will be helping with operations, fundraising, and disaster mental health.

They may have expertise in logistics, transportation, or experience in setting up shelters before Dorian makes landfall.

They will need to be ready to welcome and take in residents whose homes were impacted by wind and water.

If you would like to get involved with the Red Cross, there will be a shelter training class tomorrow at the Red Cross Office in Gulfport.
