CLEWISTON,Fla. — People get ready for another night of uncertainty as Hurricane Dorian inches closer.
The voluntary evacuation shelters shut down. But people were still waiting to see what would happen.
The potential threat of Hurricane Dorian kept families from doing much of anything Tuesday in Clewiston.
“We are just staying at home,” said Steph Leon as she stood with her partner and 4-year-old daughter.
A lot of homes along their have their yards clear and things like their basketball hoops laying on the ground so they cannot blow around. But other like Leon did not take any chances.
“Boarding up the windows. The sandbags are ready. Everything put up in our backyard. No patio furniture loose,” said Leon.
Leon and her partner Jesse Guerra lived through Hurricane Irma and felt like they weren’t ready when it hit. Now they feel a little better.
“The winds gets gusty enough probably better to have it up,” said Guerra.
The Bonilla family feels the same ways.
“It is cleaned up, and I covered the windows,” said Mauricio Bonilla.
They were without power for nearly two weeks during Irma. They want to make sure they are ready.
“We’re not sure, but we are going to have everything prepared,” said his daughter Joana Vanegas.
