Hurricane Ian Update #6

Hello everyone,

This morning Hurricane Ian maintains it’s course coming ashore in the Tampa area. Below the graphic is a message sent out by Premier Management. Please stay safe.

In light of the impending weather forecast for Central Florida, we are asking you to take proactive steps to ensure the safety of your community. 

Here are a few actions which we have currently taken for your community:

  • Your landscaping company has been contacted and will be on standby to remove debris from the streets to allow for safe navigation after the storm. 
  • If your community is gated, Premier has consulted with your Board and coordinated their instructions with the gate company.
  • If your community has a pool, it will be secured and may be closed for a few days due to the storm.
  • If you have an emergency, call 911. 
  • If you need to report any major issues you may contact the management company at 407-333-7787 and follow directions for the emergency dispatch services.  Please use this number to report major issues only.

Some important reminders:

  • Flying debris is the main cause of broken windows or damage to homes.  PLEASE be sure to secure any & all exterior items that could become airborne.
  • Monitor the progress of the storm through local television stations, FEMA or through your county.

Florida Disaster Preparedness Tax Free Weekend Starts Tomorrow

Hurricane Season starts June 1st so our tax-free “weekend” begins tomorrow and runs through June 10th. This will include all types of items to help deal with a major storm.

During this event check out the storm supplies you have at home and restock on those tax free items. 

Some of our residents are probably new to Florida and have not been through a hurricane before. Have a look at the State of Florida’s Hurricane Preparedness web page.  Also have a look at our previous blog post on being prepared. Hurricane Season runs from June 1st to November 30th, with mid-August to mid-October the busiest  period of activity, so be ready if a storm approaches. 

And to all our residents: please have a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend!

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.

Tropical Storm Isaias Update #4

Good morning everyone,

The good news is Hurricane Isaias has been downgraded to a tropical storm. It’s speed has decreased again so rain and wind may not reach us until this afternoon, but they also won’t be severe. Just be prepared for bands of rain to pass through and some breezy conditions.

Current path of Tropical Storm Isaias

For up-to-the-minute reports on Isaias, tune in to your local TV station [with its proximity, stations will have regular updates].

Again, please stay safe!

Hurricane Isaias Update #2

Good afternoon everyone,

Hurricane Isaias remains on it’s current path. It has shrunk a bit but will still bring rain and winds to our area, though forecast now to come tomorrow [Sunday] and last into Monday.

Here is the Channel 9 update from noon today:

Current Hurricane Isaias path as of 11 AM today.

Again, please stay safe and see our previous pasts for links to hurricane safety tips.

Hurricane Isaias Update

Good morning residents,

Hurricane Isaais has increased in strength becoming a category 1 hurricane [up from a tropical storm] and possibly reaching category 2 as it passes by. The path still shows it skimming the edge of the state and heading northeast. Whereas the eye of the storm will stay out at sea currently, we will still feel wind and rain this weekend.

Current Hurricane Path from NOAA’s Web Site

Below is the possible damage from each category of hurricane. Right now, we are not in the path but Isaias will affect the weather in all of Central Florida.

For hurricane safety tips visit the NOAA Weather Center page HERE and see yesterday’s post.

Please stay safe.

Tropical Storm Isaias

Good morning residents,

As everyone knows, we are now into Hurricane Season here in Florida and in the time of the season when there is more activity. Tropical Storm Isaias is approaching the state. This morning’s forecast from the NOAA web site shows the storm skimming the coast of South Florida and going up and to the east. This path would certainly bring us rain and winds.

The good news is that the better side of a storm to be on is the west side [less winds and rain] as long as this path remains the same.

For hurricane preparedness information please see our plan:

The National Weather Service\NOAA also has a lot of good information for storm preparedness during COVID-19 on their web page.

Please stay safe and prepared. If the storm stays on its current path we will get inclement weather Saturday and Sunday. I will post updates for the next few days as we watch the storm.

Hurricane Preparedness

Hello everyone,

Tropical Storm Colin is approaching our state. Right now, the path shows it hitting up at the panhandle, but it is a good time to think about hurricane preparedness, especially our residents who have not been through one before (it has been over 10 years since Central Florida was directly hit by a hurricane).

Check out the State of Florida’s Hurricane Preparedness page for lots of information your family can use to stay safe.

Plan ahead and keep your family safe, everyone!
