HURRICANE IRMA ALERT #8:
FINALIZE YOUR PRE-EVACUATION TASKS; KEY UNDER HURRICANE & STORM SURGE WATCH; EVACUATION ORDER NOW ZONES A, B, PARTS OF C
The latest: Miami-Dade County Mayor Gimenez issued mandatory evacuations for Flood Zone A, Zone B and parts of Zone C.
Attention all residents: Village Manager John C. Gilbert said it is « absolutely imperative to leave the island » at today’s 10:00 a.m. Emergency Operations Team Meeting. There is a good chance that Key Biscayne will experience the eye wall of Hurricane Irma, with the passage of the eye on Sunday, September 10th at 8 am.
The Key is under a hurricane watch and a storm surge watch issued earlier today by the National Hurricane Center (NHC). The storm surge watch for the Florida peninsula extends from Jupiter inlet southward and around the peninsula to Bonita Beach, including the Florida Keys.
We repeat: EVACUATE!!! The risks to your life and the lives of loved ones are too great to stay on the island. If Hurricane Irma arrives in South Florida as a category 4 storm, our island will experience high winds, higher gusts, rain and a storm surge. Police and Fire personnel will not go door-to-door to check on residents who refuse to leave their homes. Emergency personnel and vehicles will evacuate while it is safe to do so before the storm approaches.
For people who have to return from work or other off-island reasons: Entry and re-entry to Key Biscayne will remain OPEN today (Thursday) for residents, vendors and service providers.
