Emergency management for our inland counties remains on Sunday. On the coast, Charlotte County closed its Emergency Operations Center on Saturday. Lee County is keeping its center open and Collier County “partially” activated its emergency center in the last hour.

Mostly everyone at the beach near Naples Pier Sunday morning was feeling cool, calm and collected.

There was music playing, jet skis moving through the water, along with people walking and swimming. For some on the beach, Hurricane Dorian is their first experience with a storm this powerful.

“I’ll say I was really nervous,” Amy Justice said, “so I wanted to do everything right to prepare.”

Now, others fear for those who lie in Dorian’s pathway.

“If I’m honest, I’m glad it missed Naples,” Ted Davis said. “This is a beautiful town to live in, but I do have a concern where it actually makes landfall and I hope for the best for those people.”

“I’m saying prayers for anybody that is in its path,” Billie Jean Pollom said, “because it’s not fun.”
