Hurricane Statement
Issued: 12:15 AM EDT Aug. 31, 2016 – National Weather Service

This product covers west central and southwest Florida

**tropical depression 9 expected to become a tropical storm early
   this morning**

New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Hurricane Watch is in effect for coastal Levy... coastal
      Citrus... coastal Hernando and coastal Pasco
    - a tropical storm watch is in effect for inland Levy... inland
      Citrus... inland Hernando and inland Pasco

* storm information:
    - about 440 miles southwest of Cedar Key FL or about 390 miles
      southwest of mouth of Tampa Bay FL
    - 24.3n 87.8w
    - storm intensity 35 mph
    - movement north-northwest or 345 degrees at 2 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Depression Nine is expected to become a tropical storm
early this morning. The system will move north and eventually turn
northeast during Wednesday and Thursday... approaching the Florida
Big Bend coastline Thursday afternoon or evening. A Hurricane
Watch is now in effect for coastal areas from the Anclote River
north through the Suwannee River.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across west central and southwest Florida. Potential
impacts include:
    - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may become swollen
      and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and bridge
      closures.

* Wind:
prepare for dangerous wind having possible significant impacts across
the Nature Coast. Potential impacts in this area include:
    - some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage
      to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings
      experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile
      homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight
      objects become dangerous projectiles.
    - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
      numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
      fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban
      or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access
      routes impassable.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

Also, prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts
across the Tampa Bay area.

* Surge:
prepare for life-threatening surge having possible limited impacts
along the Nature Coast. Potential impacts in this area include:
    - localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along
      immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas
      farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore.
    - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread
      with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous in places where
      surge water covers the Road.
    - Moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes, mainly
      in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents.
    - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks,
      and piers. A few small craft broken away from moorings.

Elsewhere across west central and southwest Florida, little to no
impact is anticipated.

* Tornadoes:
prepare for a tornado event having possible limited impacts across
west central and southwest Florida. Potential impacts include:
    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
      and communications disruptions.
    - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys
      toppled, Mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned,
      large Tree Tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees
      knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats
      pulled from moorings.


Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

Now is the time to check your emergency plan and take necessary
actions to secure your home or business. Deliberate efforts should be
underway to protect life and property. Ensure that your emergency
supplies kit is stocked and ready.

When making safety and preparedness decisions, do not focus on the
exact forecast track as there are inherent forecast uncertainties
which must be taken into account.

If you live in a place that is particularly vulnerable to high wind,
such as a Mobile home, an upper floor of a high rise building, or on
a boat, plan to move to safe shelter. Take enough supplies for you
and your family for several days.

If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
near the ocean or a large Inland Lake, in a low lying or poor
drainage area, or near an already swollen river, plan to move to safe
shelter on higher ground

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any orders
that are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives
of others.

When securing your property, outside preparations should be conducted
as soon as possible before conditions deteriorate. The onset of
strong gusty winds and heavy rain can cause certain preparedness
activities to become unsafe.

Be sure to let friends and other family members know of your
intentions and whereabouts for surviving the storm. For emergency
purposes, have someone located away from the threatened area serve as
your Point of contact. Share vital contact information with others.
Keep cell phones handy and well charged.

Be a good samaritan and check on those who may not be fully aware of
the situation or who are unable to make personal preparations.

Visitors to the area should become familiar with nearby surroundings.
If you are a visitor, know the name of the County or Parish in which
you are located and where it is relative to current watches and
warnings. If staying at a hotel, ask the management staff about their
onsite disaster plan. Listen for evacuation orders, especially
pertaining to area visitors.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the
forecast.
