Hurricane Preparedness Plan

Please Make Sure

Please make sure the information below is accurate and up to date.  This is the information that the property management staff will use in case of emergency and/or hurricane.  Thank you for ensuring we have the latest information.

Emergency Preparedness

TROPICAL STORM AND HURRICANE PREPARATION

Hurricane season begins June 1st of each year and ends November 30th. Florida can be threatened any time during this season.  This information will help you prepare for a hurricane. Please take the time to read this information carefully.

The following are some useful definitions:

• TROPICAL DEPRESSION has winds of less than 39 miles per hour or 34 knots.
• TROPICAL STORM has winds from 39 to 73 miles per hour or 34 to 63 knots.
• TROPICAL STORM “WARNING” once issued, can develop into a hurricane. 
• HURRICANE “WATCH” - a hurricane may threaten the area within 24-36 hours.
• HURRICANE “WARNING” - a hurricane is expected to strike the area within 24 hours or less.
• HURRICANE has winds of greater than 74 miles per hour or 64 knots.
            Category 1 74-95 MPH Minimal
            Category 2 95-110 MPH Moderate
            Category 3 111-130 Major
            Category 4 131-155 Extensive
            Category 5 156 MPH + Catastrophic

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO BE READY IN THE EVENT OF A DISASTER?

Before the Storm
Preparing in advance for hurricane season can determine not only how safely and comfortably you ride out the storm, but also how easily it is to handle the days and weeks after the storm has passed.  Take a look at the information collected below to learn how you can prepare in the days and weeks before a hurricane.

Plan your stay or evacuation:
Stay Home
: However, before you choose this option, make sure you know your elevation. If we experience a storm that may put a significant storm surge in your home, you need to look at the other options. Also, people in manufactured and mobile homes cannot use this option. Mobile homes and manufactured homes are not built to withstand the high winds associated with tropical storms and hurricanes.

Stay With a Friend or Relative Who has a Safe Place: If this is your plan, make arrangements in advance. You need to make sure that where you are going is safe. It defeats the purpose of evacuating if you go to an unsafe place.

Relocate Out of the Area: You may wish to travel out of harm’s way. Be sure to bring a road map and make sure that your car is full of fuel. Stay away from major bodies of water. Make arrangements in advance if you can. If you decide to use this option, go early, traffic will be heavy if you leave at the last minute, and you may not make it to your destination.

Emergency Public Shelters: For more information on Emergency Shelters and a list of available Public Shelters please visit a county Public Library or Publix Super Market near you.

Have a 72-Hour Survival Kit
You should plan to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours (3 days) during and after a disaster. You should anticipate no water, electrical power, or utilities for that period of time. To ensure the comfort of your family, whether at home or evacuated to another location please download and print the Hurricane Survival Kit (PDF).

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 PM EDT Fri Aug 17 2018

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Storm Ernesto, located several hundred miles north-northwest of the
Azores.

A tropical wave located a few hundred miles east of the Windward
Islands is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms.
Environmental conditions are becoming less conducive and
development of this system is not expected while it moves
westward at about 15 mph. This system is forecast to move through
the Windward Islands on Saturday where it could bring locally heavy
rainfall to portions of the area this weekend.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low... near 0 percent.

Tropical Storm Ernesto Discussion Number  10
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL052018
1100 AM AST Fri Aug 17 2018

Ernesto is somewhat surprisingly maintaining convection and
well-defined banding features over the northern and eastern
portions of its circulation despite being over SSTs of 20-21C.  The
cloud tops have warmed within the past couple of hours perhaps an
indication that Ernesto is finally beginning to lose its
tropical characteristics.  A blend of the latest satellite intensity
estimates still supports an initial wind speed of 40 kt.

Ernesto will be moving over progressively colder waters during the
next 12-24 hours and should become post-tropical later today or
tonight.  Little change in strength is expected during the next day
or so while the post-tropical cyclone cyclone moves quickly across
the north Atlantic.  The cyclone is forecast to weaken slightly as
it approaches Ireland and merges with a frontal zone that is
expected to be located across the central portions of the United
Kingdom and Ireland Saturday night and early Sunday.

The tropical storm is moving northeastward at 26 kt.  A slightly
faster northeastward to east-northeastward motion is expected
during the next 36 hours as Ernesto remains embedded within the
mid-latitude westerly flow. The models continue to be in good
agreement, and the NHC track is close to the various consensus
aids.

The post-tropical cyclone or its remnants are expected to spread
gusty winds and locally heavy rain over portions of Ireland and the
United Kingdom Saturday night and early Sunday.  Information on
rainfall and wind forecasts for Ireland can be found in products
issued by Met Eireann at www.met.ie and for the United Kingdom in
products issued by the United Kingdom Met Office
