Hurricane Preparedness
 
 
   Hurricane season is June 1st through November 30th with the most active storm         period generally late August through September.    All owners need to monitor the         weather in South Florida closely during the entire hurricane season.  If a storm     threatens plan ahead, be prepared and extend a helping hand.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
BE PREPARED:
 
Refill your prescriptions, fill up your car with gas and withdraw a weeks' worth of cash-power outages may interrupt these services temporarily.  Place important valuable papers in plastic waterproof bags, cover windows and doors and bring in all outdoor furniture.  Have an evacuation plan in place and a grab and go bag ready for every member of your family in case you need to stay in an evacuation center, including items for your children.  Make sure your cat or dog is accounted for in case of evacuation.  Many shelters do not accept pets. 
 
NATIONAL-HURRICANE CENTER:  SAFFIR-SIMPSON HURRICANE WINDS SCALE: 
 
Tropical Storm: 39-73 mph maximum sustained wind gusts
Category 1 Hurricane: 74-95 mph winds; Very dangerous winds will produce some damage
Category 2 Hurricane: 96-110 mph winds; extremely dangerous winds will cause extensive damage
Category 3 Hurricane: 111-129 mph winds; devastating damage will occur
Category 4 Hurricane: 130-156 mph winds; catastrophic damage will occur
Category 5 Hurricane: 157 mph winds or higher; catastrophic damage will occur
 
STORM ADVISORIES:  WATCHES AND WARNINGS: 
 
A STORM WATCH  watch is issued 48 hours in advance of the onset of tropical force winds. A watch lets you know that weather conditions are favorable for a storm to occur. It literally means "be on guard!" During a weather watch, gather awareness of the specific threat and prepare for action - monitor the weather to find out if severe weather conditions have deteriorated and discuss your protective action plans with your family.
 
A STORM WARNING is issued 36 hours in advance of the onset of tropical force winds. A warning requires IMMEDIATE ACTION. 
 
This means a weather hazard is imminent - it is either occurring (a tornado has been spotted, for example) - or it is about to occur at any moment. During a weather warning, it is important to take action: grab the emergency kit you have prepared in advance, complete storm preparations and be ready to  immediately leave the area if directed by local officials.
 
Both watches and warnings are important, but warnings are more urgent.
 
HURRICANE PREPARATION: 
 
Out of Town/Seasonal Owners
 
Each member who plans to be absent form his/her apartment during the hurricane season must prepare his apartment prior to departure by:
  1. Removing all furniture and plants from his balcony, patio or porch
  2. Designating a responsible firm or individual to care for his unit during his absence in the event that the unit should suffer hurricane damage, and furnish the Board of Directors with the name of such firm or individual.  The designated firm or individual shall contact the Board of Directors for permission to install or to remove hurricane shutters.
  3. Permanent storm shutters must be white in color and must meet south Florida Building codes and be approved by the Association.  Contact a Board member for specifications.
Residents living alone
 
If you are living alone make sure you have a plan in place for family members, friends or neighbors to check to see that you are ok or if you need help to prepare for the storm or in case of mandatory evacuation.  Please notify the Board of Directors with your emergency contact information and make sure it is always updated.
 
Boat Owners
 
Boat owners must follow the direction of the Marine Colony Dock master with regards to securing your boat.  If you have someone taking care of your boat or moving your boat, the Dock master must be informed.  No boat will be allowed to leave property without the owners permission.
