Hurricane Irma update from Lee County Emergency Management
Hurricane Irma update as of 12:45 p.m. from Lee County Emergency Management Acting Director Lee Mayfield:
While it is now more likely that Southwest Florida will see impacts from Hurricane Irma, it is too early to tell specifically what those impacts will be locally.
Residents should review their hurricane/evacuation plans, update their hurricane supply kit and be ready to act when evacuation orders are issued for certain populations and areas of the county. Residents should stay informed via local media and www.leeeoc.com.
Evacuation and sheltering decisions will be made as direct impacts from Irma become more clear, most likely over the next day or two. Those decisions will be communicated to local media when they are made.
