Hurricane Isaias prompts hurricane watch for parts of Florida east coast
Florida’s east coast communities were issued a hurricane watch Friday morning as Category 1 Hurricane Isaias continues its approach toward the Sunshine State with expectations it will begin riding up the coast Saturday afternoon.
The watch includes communities from Deerfield Beach northward to the Volusia-Brevard County line, the National Hurricane Center said in its 11 a.m. update. An earlier tropical storm watch from Key Largo to Sebastian Inlet has been turned into a tropical storm warning as well. Full Article HERE

The storm could bring torrential rain, coastal flooding and strong winds to many parts of the Eastern Seaboard
Tropical storm conditions could begin along the east coast of Florida as soon as Saturday as the storm makes a beeline northward on a menacing path along the coast.
“There is a risk of impacts from winds, heavy rainfall, and storm surge late this weekend from the northeastern Florida coast and spreading northward along the remainder of the U.S. east coast through early next week,” wrote the National Hurricane Center.

Aquarius residents with no Impact Windows should make sure their protection is fully functional. Storm Shutters are known to present problems when needed. Now would be a good time to verify if they close properly in case of wind speed increase. Units with Impact Windows also could benefit to verify all opening close securely.
The Management Office of Aquarius issued 3 documents of great relevance for Storm Preparation. It is a great time to review them
