While Hurricane Irma moves towards Central Florida, just about everyone is hunkering down or making last minute preparations, well everyone except for first responders and anyone being forced to work.

Local labor group and non-profit coalition Central Florida Jobs with Justice wants to know if your boss is making you work during Hurricane Irma conditions. Just fill out this survey, and you're information will be kept confidential unless you give them consent.

The Orlando Sentinel has a list of a a few places that still open today, including Wawa and Waffle House locations.

There's currently a mandatory curfew beginning tonight at 7 p.m. till Monday at 6 p.m. in Orange and Seminoles counties.
