Hurricane Dorian

Hurricane Dorian

Dorian is expected to become a major hurricane on Friday and landfall could happen anywhere along Florida’s Atlantic coast. We will be monitoring the storm closely throughout the weekend and will be preparing accordingly with our vendors. 

Now is the time to begin thinking about what kinds of preparations you might need to make over the next couple of days.  This is the time to activate your personal hurricane plan. 

Please remember the following:

  • Please ensure that all items outside your home/condo are removed and stored safely indoors.  Items left outside may become projectiles and cause damage to property in the event there is a hurricane (please remove potted plants, patio furniture, hoses, outdoor decorations, etc.)
  • Have plenty of non-perishable food and water on hand
  • Have flashlights, batteries, portable radio, medication, etc.
  • Have evacuation plan, if necessary
  • Top off your vehicles with gas
  • Familiarize yourselves with location of local shelters
  • Pay attention to the weather reports for updates
  • Safety is your first priority
