Hurricane Dorian has started its turn north and is not projected to make landfall according to the current projected path. News reports say Central Florida should start feeling effects tomorrow night as it passes by. There is also a curfew set for Osceola County starting at 11 PM Tuesday until 6 AM Wednesday. Many businesses in that area and in surrounding counties will have shorter hours tomorrow or may not be opening at all. You may want to call ahead if you need to visit a local business. Lake County schools will remain closed through at least Wednesday.
The HOA will have the gates operational and the pools re-opened as soon as they deem the storm and its effects are far enough past us.
Good morning residents,
Currently, Hurricane Dorian is about to hit the Bahamas. The projected path shows it slowing down as it crosses land and then shifting to the North and moving along the coast past Florida, Georgia, and the Carolina’s, not making landfall in Florida at all. This could leave us with just getting some rain and wind but nothing devastating. But until the storm is actually past Central Florida everyone should keep monitoring its path in case of any sudden changes in direction. We do know Lake County schools will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday. Keep yourselves and families safe!
Here is information for everyone:
- The pool / club house areas are now closed until further notice. Volunteers have secured all items there. We will reopen it as soon as weather conditions clear after the hurricane passes.
- Please remember to remove all items from your yards and porches that can be blown about by the wind. This includes your trash & recycling bins. Place them in your garage to prevent them from becoming projectiles from wind gusts.
Thank you and please stay safe in the storm.
Tropical Storm Dorian is headed towards us and is projected to gain strength, possibly as high as a category 3 storm. While it is too far out to project where in Florida it will hit, we will most likely be affected by storms and wind.
You can check the current projected path at NOAA’s National Hurricane Center page HERE. On the current course we may get hit on the coast around Monday morning, but these storms can be very unpredictable so check the NHC page periodically, watch the local news casts, or the Weather Channel broadcasts to get the latest path information.
For those of you new to Florida you can check out our Storm Preparedness packet on our web site HERE.
We will send out updates here, on NextDoor.com, and through the E-Loop when we have more information to give out.
Everyone please stay safe!
A small dog, white with brown spots was found wandering the neighborhood near Autumn Glen and Wilshire. It has on a pinkish/red collar but no tags. If you have any info on its owner please respond here. A posting on Nextdoor Neighbor has also been put up.
With the recent news story on the rabid cat found near Disney property [“Cat with rabies triggers alert on Epcot Center Drive in Orange County, health officials say”] we want to remind residents that cats are not allowed to freely roam the neighborhood. For their protection and yours, please keep them indoors and make sure they are up to date on their shots.
Rabies can also affect your dogs. Make sure they are vaccinated as well, as rabies can be transmitted among other wild animals (such as bats, raccoons, and squirrels) that pets could come in contact with.
Here is the CDC information on rabies. Consult with your pets’ veterinary doctor if you have further questions on keeping your pet safe. You can also contact the Lake County Office of Animal Services at their web page to get further information.
We are aware of the front entrance sign problem. We have hired a company and will have it repaired soon. Thank you for those who have brought it to our attention.
