As Hurricane Dorian makes landfall along the East Coast of Florida lets remember to keep our Christian Radio family in prayer. Stations include WAY FM/West Palm Beach, Christian FM/Vero Beach, WCIF/Melbourne, WHIF/Palatka and many others.
Psalm 18:6, In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His temple, and my cry came before Him, even to His ears.
When powerful Hurricane Dorian—a category 5 storm with 200 mph+ winds and literally walls of water—blasted through The Bahamas over the weekend….both of Salem Radio Network’s 24/7 news services ( SRN News and TOWNHALL News ) tapped their Salem stations in Florida for updates on the potential impact as Dorian heads toward the U.S. mainland.
HERE is one example: a TOWNHALL News top of the hour newscast with WGUL/Tampa reporter Captain Matt Bruce reporting from Florida. Miami stations have also provided contact info for station personnel who are ready if Dorian’s impact is severe in South Florida. (Schools in Miami/Dade and other areas are already closed through at least Wednesday, and stores and gas stations along the East Coast are running low on fuel, water and food.)
SRN News and TOWNHALL News will keep Salem o/n/o’s and their 2,300+ other news affiliates up to the minute on all Breaking News as this historic hurricane drama unfolds over the next 24 to 48 hours
