Hurricane Irma preparation for Marbella Lakes residents

Hello All,
Hurricane Irma is heading towards Florida and is projected to arrive early Saturday.
In preparation of the storm we are securing the clubhouse, tennis court and pool areas.There will be limited pool furniture available for use this week. Please move in your lanai furniture and remove any items outside of your home that could be damaged.  If necessary I’ve listed below a list of items you will need if an evacuation is mandated by the County. At this time hurricane shutters may be put up and then removed after the storm passes.  If you are not in Florida at this time please contact your home watch person to secure your unit. The landscape company will be on-site after the storm to start cleaning up the area if necessary.
