Irma comes closer

Hurricane Irma is on her way straight to the southern tip of the peninsula of Florida and the mandatory evacuation is ordered for the areas of the southern part of the Dade County and the southeastern area of the coast. The evacuation is in effect and residents of that areas must be gone by Thursday afternoon until further notice. The shelters are open, but these shelters should be reserved to persons who cannot go anywhere else.
Please do not forget your pets and food and water for them. Please be aware, there are special shelters for animals and their family. Pets are not allowed in every shelter.
If you have a car and family in other regions of Florida, leave the evacuation zones now. Besides the strong winds which can damage the homes and bring down tree limbs, the high storm surge is the biggest threat due to the low land level in the evacuation zones.
Therefore, please listen to the news and take the word of Governor Scott to your heart: Homes can be rebuilt, but not a life.
Let’s stick together. Let’s prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
