Please remember if you choose to stay on the island during a mandatory hurricane evacuation, you are not guaranteed emergency services.
We want to clarify some rumors: The City is not shutting off power or water to residents, though these things may be down during a storm. The Causeway is NOT closing this afternoon. We are not knocking on doors requiring people to leave. However, we will not provide police or fire services once winds reach Tropical Storm force or if roads become impassable.
We urge residents to identify a safe place to stay off the island. If you do not have transportation off the island and shelter, there are buses available at the Island Community Center, 4700 Broadway.
