Administrative leadership met today at 4:00 PM to discuss Hurricane Irma and the impact she will have on our facility.
What We Know
Hurricane Irma remains a strong Category 5 hurricane with sustained winds a 175 mph, moving WNW at 16 mph. The current track predicts a direct impact on South Florida and continuing up the peninsula, through Georgia and into South Carolina. We will continue to monitor the track of the storm and provide updates.
- Our facility has been stocked with all necessary resources.
- Incident Command has been established. This will allow our facility to communicate immediate resources through regional, local and state entities.
- We’ve been assured by Brasfield & Gorre that the tower cranes will be able to hold during the storm. These cranes are able to outlast wind gust up to 90 mph. You may notice the cranes turning in the wind. This normal for these devices as the clutch has been released to prevent unnecessary wind drag.
We will continue passing along updates as we receive them.
