Evacuation orders and advisories are in effect for much of coastal Florida, Georgia and South Carolina as Hurricane Dorian lurks off the coast. The storm, now downgraded to a category three, has been stationary over The Bahamas but is expected to head north. Forecasters warn that Dorian could bring heavy flooding and a dangerous storm surge. More than 12-hundred flights are cancelled today.  That's after nearly 14-hundred were cancelled yesterday.

Labor Day is officially a record breaker for Denver.  Yesterday's high topped out at 100 degrees in the city, marking the latest triple digit temperature in the Mile High City.  The previous mark was August 16th in 2002. It was also a record for the day, blowing away the prior top temperature of 95-degrees set in 1983.  The National Weather Service shows a cooling trend in the forecast for today, with temps in the 80s.  

One person is hurt following a weekend crash at a Taste of Colorado.  Denver police say a driver went through a barricade at the event on Sunday night while navigating crowds.  One victim was left with a leg injury. The driver was arrested at the scene. A Taste of Colorado wrapped up last night.
