Residents can expect storm gusts of up to 65 MPH, localized flooding, and downbursts.
The predicted earliest arrival time for Tropical Storm Eta is Sunday, November 8, 2020. Out of an abundance of caution, the following city services will be closed Sunday starting at 3 p.m. until further notice:
- All city parks
- Community Shuttle Bus

They will have an update later today on Waste Pro Services impacting tomorrow’s garbage pick-up.
They remind residents to secure items, which could potentially become flying projectiles, and to clear storm drains to reduce the possibility of roadway flooding. This is not the time to leave bulk items out for pick up.
The city’s call center is operational today from 1 to 8 p.m. All storm-related questions should be directed to the call center (954-344-1001). Please reserve the use of 9-1-1 and the non-emergency number for police and fire-related calls.
