Subtropical Storm Nicole Update 1

Good morning everyone,

We now have Subtropical Storm Nicole making its way towards Florida. The current path has it coming ashore early on Thursday. We are looking at rain for several days with some wind gusts possibly starting on Wednesday. There are warnings out for beach goers about rough surf and rip currents already affecting them starting as early as today.

This storm could cancel or delay our garbage/recycling pick-up again and cause further headaches on yard-waste pick-up (which appears to have finally been done on Friday).

I will post when there is more information to get out to everyone. Please stay safe!

Tropical Storm Ian Update #9

Good morning everyone,

Hurricane Ian is now a tropical storm and is located over Palm Bay. Its path is projected to go out over the Atlantic and then swing back towards South Carolina. Winds are still gusty and rain is still coming down. This should slowly die down as the day goes on but please stay home and off the roads unless it is an emergency. Once you feel it is safe to go out and drive please avoid roads with standing water as you don’t know what debris or hazards may be below the water level.

Please stay safe.

Hurricane Ian Update #8

Good morning everyone,

Hurricane Ian is making landfall this morning with South Florida. It is still projected to pass to the East of our area but close enough to bring the rain and wind.

The rain has begun in our area and wind gusts will start later in the day. Please monitor TV or radio broadcasts on the storm.

Everyone please be safe. Stay home and off the roads if you can. I will post updates when I can.

Hurricane Ian Path Wednesday Morning

Hurricane Ian Update #7

Hello everyone,

Ian’s path has shifted to the East more. The path earlier today took it right over Lake County and now the latest path shows it passing further to the East. Still please be careful and stay home if you can. Rain and wind will begin tomorrow and tornados are a possibility. Again, please bring in any items around your house that could be blown around. This includes your trash/recycle bins.

Ian’s Projected Path @ 8 PM tonight

Here is a screen grab from an app showing a closer view of the path in our area. The path is now East of us but still close.

Schools, theme parks, and many stores have already announced closures for the next few days.

Take care!

Hurricane Ian Update #4

Good morning residents,

The latest forecast shows Ian’s path has shifted East and will skim along the St. Pete/Tampa area and land just above the area. This will certainly bring heavy rains and winds to our area.

Below is the wind probabilities for the storm. We will certainly feel the winds so please bring in any items around your yard that can be blown about – lawn furniture, grills, pots, etc.

Wind Probability for Ian

You can keep up to date with storm information on TV and online. As Ian gets closer most of our local stations will flip over to constant storm coverage.

Please keep in mind traffic on I-4 East bound will be heavy as people leave the West coast so your commute might be affected on the highway.

Everyone please stay safe.

Tropical Storm Ian Update #2

Good morning everyone,

As of this morning Ian is still a tropical storm but is gaining strength and expected to become a hurricane by tomorrow morning as the warm waters it is over feed it. The projected path has moved it further west with possible landfall near the Florida panhandle. Ian is expected to become a major storm [Category 3+] by Tuesday as it moves along.

Pay attention to the cone around the path: the storm has a chance of wandering within that path so we are still within that area.

I will post this evening with the next update on the storm.

Please see our Hurricane Preparedness page for general information on Florida hurricanes and storms.

Stay safe!

Tropical Storm Elsa Update #1

Hello residents,

Tropical Storm Elsa has formed and the current path shows it going over Florida. The good news is it is not predicted to reach Hurricane status and the path over us is still just a projection so could change in the coming days. I will post updates as needed.

If you are looking for information to prepare for a storm please see our Hurricane Preparedness Page.
