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

Tropical Storm Hermine continues to strengthen across the southern
Gulf of Mexico. Hermine is expected to continue moving northward
toward the Florida Gulf Coast with tropical storm conditions
approaching the coast by Thursday afternoon. There is some potential
for the system to strengthen to a hurricane before making landfall
early Friday morning. Tropical storm warnings are now in effect from
Destin eastward through the Suwannee River. With the storm possibly
strengthening to a hurricane, a Hurricane Watch is now in effect for
our entire coastline and a few inland counties in the Florida Big
Bend.

At this time based on the latest forecasts, areas in North Florida
should prepare for the potential of near hurricane force winds late
Thursday evening and early Friday morning. There is also a
significant threat for flooding with some locations receiving as
much as 15 to 20 inches of rain through Friday afternoon. This is
capable of producing life threatening flash flooding across the
area.

Along the coast, dangerous storm surge flooding is expected with storm
surge values of 4 to 6 feet above ground in Apalachee Bay.

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

* wind:
protect against dangerous wind having possible significant impacts
across the Florida Panhandle and Florida Big Bend. Potential impacts
in this area include:
    - moderate damage to frame built homes, primarily due to the loss
      of roofing and siding materials, along with damage to porches,
      awnings, carports, and sheds. Some windows and garage doors may
      fail. Mobile homes damaged, some significantly if unanchored.
      Unsecured lightweight objects become projectiles.
    - Several large trees uprooted; some snapped. Some large roadway
      signs blown over.
    - A few primary and some secondary roads are impassible due to
      debris.
    - Scattered power and communication outages; some locally
      significant, lasting for days.

* Flooding rain:
protect against life-threatening rainfall flooding having possible
extensive impacts across North Florida and south Georgia.
Potential impacts include:
    - major flooding from rainfall will prompt evacuations in flood
      prone areas. Those not heeding evacuations in these locations
      face serious injury or death.
    - Rivers and associated tributary creeks and stream will rise and
      overflow into the flood plain. Runoff will put stress on area
      holding ponds and drainage ditches, increasing the likelihood
      of widespread urban flooding.
    - Flood waters will impact structures in low lying areas, as well
      as those in the flood plain, possibly entering buildings. Urban
      flooding will result in several Road closures and some
      washouts. A few overpasses may be weakened by fast moving flood
      waters. Driving conditions are very dangerous.

* Tornadoes:
protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts
across North Florida.
Potential impacts include:
    - isolated tornadoes are expected, resulting in a notable impact
      to affected communities.
    - Isolated areas affected by tornadoes will experience minor
      damage, including some damage to structures and sporadic power
      and communication outages.
    - A few structures will be damaged by tornadoes, mainly with loss
      of shingles or siding. Some Mobile homes will be significantly
      damaged, especially those unanchored. Large trees will be
      snapped or uprooted.

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

* evacuations:
emergency management officials have issued a mandatory evacuation for
the following areas...

In Wakulla County... locations in zone a.

In Dixie County... all coastal areas effective at 8 am Thursday.

In Franklin County... for residents of St George Island.

For those under evacuation orders, leave as soon as practical
with a destination in mind. Gas up your vehicle well ahead of
time. Be sure that you take all essential materials from your
emergency supplies kit. Let others know where you are going
and when you intend to arrive.

If you are exceptionally vulnerable to wind or water hazards from
tropical systems, consider voluntary evacuation, especially if
being officially recommended. Relocate to a predetermined shelter
or safe destination.

Now is the time to bring to completion all preparations to protect
life and property in accordance with your emergency plan.

Outside preparations should be wrapped up as soon as possible before
weather conditions completely deteriorate. Any remaining evacuations
and relocations should be expedited before the onset of tropical
storm force wind.

Keep cell phones well charged and handy. Also, cell phone chargers
for automobiles can be helpful after the storm. Locate your chargers
and keep them with your cell phone.

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

The next local statement will be issued by the National Weather
Service in Tallahassee FL as conditions warrant.

* Flooding rain:
protect against life-threatening rainfall flooding having possible
extensive impacts across North Florida and south Georgia.
Potential impacts include:
    - major flooding from rainfall will prompt evacuations in flood
      prone areas. Those not heeding evacuations in these locations
      face serious injury or death.
    - Rivers and associated tributary creeks and stream will rise and
      overflow into the flood plain. Runoff will put stress on area
      holding ponds and drainage ditches, increasing the likelihood
      of widespread urban flooding.
    - Flood waters will impact structures in low lying areas, as well
      as those in the flood plain, possibly entering buildings. Urban
      flooding will result in several Road closures and some
      washouts. A few overpasses may be weakened by fast moving flood
      waters. Driving conditions are very dangerous.

* Tornadoes:
protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts
across North Florida.
Potential impacts include:
    - isolated tornadoes are expected, resulting in a notable impact
      to affected communities.
    - Isolated areas affected by tornadoes will experience minor
      damage, including some damage to structures and sporadic power
      and communication outages.
    - A few structures will be damaged by tornadoes, mainly with loss
      of shingles or siding. Some Mobile homes will be significantly
      damaged, especially those unanchored. Large trees will be
      snapped or uprooted.

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

* evacuations:
emergency management officials have issued a mandatory evacuation for
the following areas...

In Wakulla County... locations in zone a.

In Dixie County... all coastal areas effective at 8 am Thursday.

In Franklin County... for residents of St George Island.

For those under evacuation orders, leave as soon as practical
with a destination in mind. Gas up your vehicle well ahead of
time. Be sure that you take all essential materials from your
emergency supplies kit. Let others know where you are going
and when you intend to arrive.

If you are exceptionally vulnerable to wind or water hazards from
tropical systems, consider voluntary evacuation, especially if
being officially recommended. Relocate to a predetermined shelter
or safe destination.

Now is the time to bring to completion all preparations to protect
life and property in accordance with your emergency plan.

Outside preparations should be wrapped up as soon as possible before
weather conditions completely deteriorate. Any remaining evacuations
and relocations should be expedited before the onset of tropical
storm force wind.

Keep cell phones well charged and handy. Also, cell phone chargers
for automobiles can be helpful after the storm. Locate your chargers
and keep them with your cell phone.

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

      miles south-southwest of Tallahassee
    - 24.7n 88.0w
    - storm intensity 40 mph
    - movement north or 10 degrees at 2 mph

Situation overview
------------------
the tropical system over the southern Gulf of Mexico has strengthened
into Tropical Storm Hermine with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph.
Additional strengthening is expected today. Hermine will begin
moving northeast later tonight and increase in forward speed and
approach the Florida Big Bend and Panhandle coastline Thursday evening.
There is still some uncertainty on the intensity forecast and
could become a hurricane prior to landfall. Therefore, hurricane
watches remain in effect for the offshore waters and coastal
sections of the Florida Big Bend.

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

* wind:
protect against dangerous wind having possible significant impacts
across the Florida Big Bend. Potential impacts in this area
include:
    - moderate damage to frame built homes, primarily due to the loss
      of roofing and siding materials, along with damage to porches,
      awnings, carports, and sheds. Some windows and garage doors may
      fail. Mobile homes damaged, some significantly if unanchored.
      Unsecured lightweight objects become projectiles.
    - Several large trees uprooted; some snapped. Some large roadway
      signs blown over.
    - A few primary and some secondary roads are impassible due to
      debris.
    - Scattered power and communication outages; some locally
      significant, lasting for days.

* Surge:
protect against life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across the Florida Big Bend and Apalachee Bay. Potential
impacts in this area include:
    - areas of inundation from storm surge flooding, compounded by
      higher waves. Non-elevated homes and businesses along the coast
      will be subject to flooding primarily on the ground floor.
    - Sections of coastal highways and access roads will be flooded
      with portions washed out, isolating affected coastal
      communities.
    - Moderate beach erosion with damage to the dune line.
    - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, and piers. Small craft not
      secured prior to the storm will break away from moorings.

* Flooding rain:
protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible
significant impacts across the Florida Big Bend and south
central Georgia.

Potential impacts include:
    - moderate flooding from rainfall will prompt extra preparation
      to protect property from flooding in low lying areas. Isolated
      evacuations may become necessary.
    - Rivers and associated tributary creeks and streams will rise to
      bankfull levels and possibly reach flood stage. Runoff will
      fill area holding ponds and drainage ditches, increasing the
      potential for urban flooding with additional rainfall.
    - Flood waters will approach structures in low lying areas. Urban
      flooding will result in isolated Road closures. Dangerous
      driving conditions.

* Tornadoes:
protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts
across the Florida Big Bend.

Potential impacts include:
    - isolated tornadoes are expected, resulting in a notable impact
      to affected communities.
    - Isolated areas affected by tornadoes will experience minor
      damage, including some damage to structures and sporadic power
      and communication outages.
    - A few structures will be damaged by tornadoes, mainly with loss
      of shingles or siding. Some Mobile homes will be significantly
      damaged, especially those unanchored. Large trees will be
      snapped or uprooted.

Elsewhere across eastern Florida Panhandle... Florida Big
Bend... southeastern Alabama and southwestern Georgia, little to no
impact is anticipated.

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

Now is the time to bring to completion all preparations to protect
life and property in accordance with your emergency plan.

Outside preparations should be wrapped up as soon as possible before
weather conditions completely deteriorate. Any remaining evacuations

If you are relocating to safe shelter, leave as early as possible. If
heading to a community shelter, become familiar with the shelter
rules before arrival, especially if you have special needs or own a
pet. Take essential items with you from your emergency supplies kit.
Check the latest weather forecast before departing.

Failure to adequately shelter may result in serious injury or loss of
life. Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any
orders that are issued. Remember, during the storm 9 1 1 emergency
services may not be able to immediately respond if conditions are
unsafe. This should be a big factor in your decision making.

Keep cell phones well charged and handy. Also, cell phone chargers

        - Rivers and associated tributary creeks and stream will rise
          and overflow into the flood plain. Runoff will put stress
          on area holding ponds and drainage ditches, increasing the
          likelihood of widespread urban flooding.
        - Flood waters will impact structures in low lying areas, as
          well as those in the flood plain, possibly entering
          buildings. Urban flooding will result in several Road
          closures and some washouts. A few overpasses may be
          weakened by fast moving flood waters. Driving conditions
          are very dangerous.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - When implementing emergency plans, include a reasonable
          threat for isolated tornadoes.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited tornado
          impacts.
        - Listen for tornado watches and warnings. Be ready to
          shelter quickly if a tornado approaches.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - isolated tornadoes are expected, resulting in a notable
          impact to affected communities.
        - Isolated areas affected by tornadoes will experience minor
          damage, including some damage to structures and sporadic
          power and communication outages.
        - A few structures will be damaged by tornadoes, mainly with
          loss of shingles or siding. Some Mobile homes will be
          significantly damaged, especially those unanchored. Large
          trees will be snapped or uprooted.

* locations affected
    - Monticello
    - Wacissa

* wind
    - latest local forecast: equivalent tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 35-45 mph with gusts to 60 mph
        - window for tropical storm force winds: Thursday evening
          until Friday afternoon

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          strong tropical storm force wind of 58 to 73 mph.
        - To be safe, earnestly prepare for the potential of
          significant wind impacts. Remaining efforts to secure
          properties should now be brought to completion.
        - Dangerous wind is possible. Failure to adequately shelter
          may result in serious injury, or in some cases loss of
          life. Move to safe shelter before the wind becomes
          hazardous.

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - moderate damage to frame built homes, primarily due to the
          loss of roofing and siding materials, along with damage to
          porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. Some windows and
          garage doors may fail. Mobile homes damaged, some
          significantly if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight objects
          become projectiles.
        - Several large trees uprooted; some snapped. Some large
          roadway signs blown over.
        - A few primary and some secondary roads are impassible due
          to debris.
        - Scattered power and communication outages; some locally
          significant, lasting for days.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 8-12 inches, with locally
          higher amounts

    - current threat to life and property: high
        - the flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          major flooding where peak rainfall totals well exceed
          amounts conducive for flash flooding and rapid inundation.
          Rescues and emergency evacuations are likely.
        - To be safe, aggressively prepare for the potential of
          extensive flooding rain impacts.
        - Life threatening flooding is possible. Failure to take
          action may result in serious injury or significant loss of
          life. If flood related watches and warnings are issued,
          heed recommended actions. Poor decisions may result in
          being cut off or needlessly risk lives. If vulnerable,
          relocate to safe shelter on higher ground before flood
          waters arrive.

    - Potential impacts: extensive
        - major flooding from rainfall will prompt evacuations in
          flood prone areas. Those not heeding evacuations in these
          locations face serious injury or death.
        - Rivers and associated tributary creeks and stream will rise
          and overflow into the flood plain. Runoff will put stress

... Hurricane Watch in effect...
... Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect...

A Hurricane Watch means hurricane wind conditions are possible
somewhere within this area and within the next 48 hours

* locations affected
    - Monticello
    - Wacissa

* wind
    - latest local forecast: equivalent tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 35-45 mph with gusts to 60 mph
        - window for tropical storm force winds: Thursday evening
          until Friday afternoon

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          strong tropical storm force wind of 58 to 73 mph.
        - To be safe, earnestly prepare for the potential of
          significant wind impacts. Remaining efforts to secure
          properties should now be brought to completion.
        - Dangerous wind is possible. Failure to adequately shelter
          may result in serious injury, or in some cases loss of
          life. Move to safe shelter before the wind becomes
          hazardous.

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - moderate damage to frame built homes, primarily due to the
          loss of roofing and siding materials, along with damage to
          porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. Some windows and
          garage doors may fail. Mobile homes damaged, some
          significantly if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight objects
          become projectiles.
        - Several large trees uprooted; some snapped. Some large
          roadway signs blown over.
        - A few primary and some secondary roads are impassible due
          to debris.
        - Scattered power and communication outages; some locally
          significant, lasting for days.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 8-12 inches, with locally
          higher amounts

    - current threat to life and property: high
        - the flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          major flooding where peak rainfall totals well exceed
          amounts conducive for flash flooding and rapid inundation.
          Rescues and emergency evacuations are likely.
        - To be safe, aggressively prepare for the potential of
          extensive flooding rain impacts.
        - Life threatening flooding is possible. Failure to take
          action may result in serious injury or significant loss of
          life. If flood related watches and warnings are issued,
          heed recommended actions. Poor decisions may result in
          being cut off or needlessly risk lives. If vulnerable,
          relocate to safe shelter on higher ground before flood
          waters arrive.

    - Potential impacts: extensive
        - major flooding from rainfall will prompt evacuations in
          flood prone areas. Those not heeding evacuations in these
          locations face serious injury or death.
        - Rivers and associated tributary creeks and stream will rise
          and overflow into the flood plain. Runoff will put stress
          on area holding ponds and drainage ditches, increasing the
          likelihood of widespread urban flooding.
        - Flood waters will impact structures in low lying areas, as
          well as those in the flood plain, possibly entering
          buildings. Urban flooding will result in several Road
          closures and some washouts. A few overpasses may be
          weakened by fast moving flood waters. Driving conditions
          are very dangerous.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - When implementing emergency plans, include a reasonable
          threat for isolated tornadoes.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited tornado
          impacts.
        - Listen for tornado watches and warnings. Be ready to
          shelter quickly if a tornado approaches.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - isolated tornadoes are expected, resulting in a notable
          impact to affected communities.
        - Isolated areas affected by tornadoes will experience minor
          damage, including some damage to structures and sporadic
          power and communication outages.
        - A few structures will be damaged by tornadoes, mainly with
          loss of shingles or siding. Some Mobile homes will be
          significantly damaged, especially those unanchored. Large
          trees will be snapped or uprooted.
