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!
The Lake County Sheriffs Office has declared a curfew starting at 7 PM tonight [Sunday] through 6 PM tomorrow. Please stay off the roads until then or the curfew is lifted sooner.
Irma is continuing it’s path up the west coast now. The hot waters in the Gulf will give it strength as it curves away from Cuba and over the Keys. Up to now we have had a cloudy, breezy day with some light bands of drizzle. We may not see any rough weather until tomorrow morning. Please stay safe and get to your home when the winds start to pick-up. The projected path below shows the storm moving by us very early Monday morning.
The HOA would like to thank everyone for removing items from their yard and taking in their cans ahead of the storm. Waste Management was able to get to our development and pick up all yard waste that was put out.
We hope everyone has had enough time to get the supplies they need, or the time to get loaded up and on the road if you are evacuating. Stay safe!
