Hurricane watch issued – prepare now

Hurricane Isaias is currently a Category 1 Hurricane heading westward towards Florida, and it’s projected to begin riding up the east coast of Florida late Saturday afternoon. A hurricane watch has been issued in our area, from Deerfield Beach northward to the Volusia-Brevard County Line.

Although at the moment, the latest storm track does not show a significant impact to the Florida mainland, please make sure you and your family are prepared and your property is secured.

I will continue to share important developments as they are released.
