9:00 PM Tropical Update - 8/31/2016
Emergency Management continues to monitor the progress of Tropical Storm Hermine.

The forecast track is for northward movement then a curve from the Gulf into the Panhandle and then across north Florida and southeast Georgia Thursday - Friday. The track has shifted much more to the west.

Unsettled weather is expected late Thursday into Friday morning.

The Threat from Tornadoes will be the main concern. There will be a risk of tornadoes Thursday into Friday. Persons should monitor for watches and warnings on Thursday and Friday. Have a plan of action should tornado warnings be issued.

Wind & Rain Most of the winds will be 15-30 mph with the chance of the odd damaging wind gust. Rainfall amounts are forecast to be under 4 inches though some localized higher amounts are possible.

Impacts Some power disruptions and minor wind damage may be possible. Localized short term flooding is also possible.

Keep in mind there may be large changes in the forecast as this plays out.

Preparedness Advice Take time to review tornado safety rules and do not drive if conditions become unsafe. Have a way to get warnings and stay updated on the weather.

This is the time to secure any loose lightweight items such as law decorations, rubbish cans etc. that may be blown about by winds. All residents should be keenly aware of latest forecasts as things can and likely will change.
