Hurricane Irene (Thursday PM Update)
Irene continues to cause uncertainty in our planning. There is a good possibility strong consideration will be given to a mandatory evacuation on Friday, August 26, 2011. It is expected if this decision is made that the evacuation will require evacuees to be off the island by the end of the day or sooner as weather conditions are expected to deteriorate as sunset approaches Friday evening. The worst weather is expected to be Friday night through Saturday night, which may cause the bridge, utilities and emergency services to be unavailable for the entire period.
