Tropical Storm  Idalia Updates

We have been keeping a close eye on Tropical Storm Idalia over the last few days and will continue to monitor the situation.  As of this morning, projections show that Idalia will most likely intensify as it makes its way toward Florida.  If forecasts are correct, Idalia may develop into a Category 3 Hurricane.  If you live in or are travelling to an area that will be affected by the storm please begin making the necessary preparations in anticipation of high winds, heavy rainfall, storm surge and flash flooding.  Communication is very important over the next few days.  Please stay in contact with your supervisors and office operations managers for the latest information on plans for your office.  As a reminder, here are some helpful tips for what to do before, during and after the storm.

Take Shelter

Secure Property and Equipment

Downed and damaged power lines, and dangerous materials

Return to work,  walking and working surfaces

Incident Management and Communication


Your safety is very important to us and should be your first priority.  Please let us know of any questions or immediate needs you may have over the next few days.  Please continue to track TS Idalia at this link or your local weather service.


Thank you.  Be well and stay safe.
