Hurricane Dorian (1).png

As you may know, Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis, has declared a State of Emergency for Hurricane Dorian. Our community and its residents are our biggest priority and we are here to support you, before, during and after the storm.

Below you will find an emergency check list and some links of resources such as storm tracking, sandbag locations in Pinellas, Hillsborough and Pasco Counties, as well as a link to make sure you are aware of your current evacuation zone. We also suggest you consider downloading a walkie-talkie app like Zello or something similar. Zello helped many people stay alert to rescue efforts, stores in the area that were still stocked with supplies, and road conditions when Irma hit by creating a network of cellular users that were able to utilize their phones like walkie talkies. We hope that these resources are of benefit to you and provide you peace of mind. Most importantly, be sure to follow any evacuation orders given by local officials, your safety and well being is of the highest importance.

Please remember that our goal is to be available to help in any way we can; please do not hesitate to contact us if we can help with anything as you prepare, during or after. We plan to stay locally unless we are mandatorily evacuated.
