Tropical Storm Laura Update #1

Hello,

We are keeping an eye on the latest weather disturbance that could affect Florida, Tropical Storm Laura. The current path shows it crossing just below the tip of Florida then going out into the Gulf and not posing any threat to the Central Florida area. But if it shifts course that could all change. We will post updates here, especially if that course change were to happen. You can see NOAA’s latest report HERE.

Hurricane Dorian Update #3

Hello everyone,

  • Dorian has dropped to a category 2 and is  moving north with no landfall with Florida.
  • The curfew for Osceola County is still happening tonight at 11 PM and ending at 6 AM
  • All area theme parks have closed for the evening and you will find many stores and restaurants also closed early or closed for all day.
  • Tomorrow morning the HOA will begin the process of having the pools checked (our pool service must inspect and give us an OK) for reopening and working with Envera to bring our gate system back up.
  • Garbage/recycling service is projected to be Friday morning and yard waste pick-up on Saturday morning, but Waste Management may have to change their schedule so the HOA will check with them in the morning and we will post definite schedules for this week as soon as we know.

Thank you.

Hurricane Dorian Update #2

Hello everyone,

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.

Stay safe!

Hurricane Dorian Update

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!
Thank you.

Storm Updates

Hello residents,

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 Preparedness

Hello residents,

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!

Hurricane Irma Update – Saturday 2 PM

Hello residents:

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.

Hurricane Irma Saturday 2 PM

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!

Hurricane Irma Update – Friday Night

Hello residents:

Irma’s path has the storm hitting South Florida on the southwest tip above the Keys. It will then travel up moving quickly north. Currently, Irma has moved over the edge of Cuba and has slowed down some. Looking at the path below, our area now may not experience heavy winds and rains until Sunday afternoon. This can give people a little more time to get ready.

Hurricane Irma Sept 8

Trash and recycling were picked up today so please put your cans away inside your garage. Waste Management has said they will be by in the morning to pick up yard waste. Please make sure it is bundled and bagged properly. If your yard waste was not picked up due to not being prepared properly, you will need to move it into your garage so it doesn’t get blown around by the storm. You will need to have it removed after the storm has passed.

As we said yesterday: please remove all items from your yard that could be blown by strong winds. Bring them inside or in your garage.

The storm center should be passing us Sunday night or early Monday morning.

Most businesses will be open tomorrow and will be closed on Sunday and Monday. The major theme parks also will be open tomorrow, though with shortened hours. They all plan on being closed Sunday and Monday, as well. Most of the theme park weekend events such as Night of Joy and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party have been cancelled. Please contact the customer service departments for these parks if you do have tickets for more information.

For the most current storm information, surf over to your local news station’s web page or tune into them on TV. I expect the local stations will switch to 24-hour storm coverage tomorrow at some point.
