FlaWARN Committe - Hurricane Sally
The FlaWARN Committee held a Zoom meeting to discuss the status of Hurricane Sally and its impact on the communities in the panhandle. We decided to place a Watch on this storm in place of making it an event until we receive further information from utilities needing assistance which will likely be more of a rain event than wind damage as it passes over the area. Gov. Ron DeSantis declared a state of emergency in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties ahead of Hurricane Sally's arrival on the Gulf Coast and it looks like pumps and possible generators will be the largest need so WATER Tracker will be open for any utilities to request needs. We will have another meeting tomorrow at 2:00 pm to give utilities time to make assessments and discuss next steps.
