Crewmembers from Coast Guard Stations Charleston and Georgetown secure 45-foot response boats during Hurricane Dorian preparations in Charleston, South Carolina, Sept. 4, 2019. The Coast Guard prestages and relocates personnel and assets to be able to have a rapid post-storm response.

Crews from Coast Guard Station Charleston, Aids to Navigation Team Charleston and Station Georgetown evacuated assets and crewmembers today, as part of preparation efforts for the arrival of Hurricane Dorian.

The Coast Guard has strategically positioned its assets and members to be clear of the impact of the storm and will reconstitute those forces to begin response operations once it is safe to do so.
