Hurricane Dorian intensifies as it heads toward US – CNN

Hurricane Dorian expected to make landfall on the Atlantic coast of Florida, where there are 11 Trump Organization-owned properties.

There are no evacuation orders in place yet, and CNN has reached out to the Trump Organization for updates on whether they plan to close any of the properties.

Here’s where the Trump properties are located:

Compare that to Dorian’s possible path:

How Trump properties have handled hurricanes in the past: As Florida braced for Hurricane Irma in 2017, Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property closed for hurricane preparations following a mandatory evacuation order.

As CNN reported at the time, Secret Service is not obligated to maintain a presence at the club during a hurricane because it is not a permanent protected property, according to former Secret Service agent Jonathan Wackrow, a CNN contributor.

When Trump isn’t there, the local West Palm Beach Secret Service field office stays in close communication with Secret Service, but that doesn’t mean it’s fully staffed. Procedurally, Secret Service treats a trip to Mar-a-Lago as “bespoke,” just like any short-term presidential trip to a Seattle Sheraton or a Phoenix Marriott, sweeping and securing the facility and taking electronic countermeasures beforehand, Wackrow said.
