Town of Oakland staff is monitoring the track of Hurricane Isaias and will continue to do so throughout the weekend. Public Works and the Oakland Police Department are prepared to act as needed should the hurricane affect public safety or utilities. The Town remains in communication with county and state partners.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis declared a State of Emergency for Florida’s east-coast counties, including Orange County. As of 7 a.m. Saturday, Hurricane Warnings continue for all coastal counties of east Central Florida. Tropical Storm Warnings are in effect for all inland counties except Lake County. Finish your storm preparations before the weather starts deteriorating this evening.

Orange County’s free Sandbag Program is open, weather permitting, today, Aug. 1 from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. Visit ocfl.net/storm for details and updates.

Given the current path, community shelters have not opened. If county shelters open, capacity will be expanded to better accommodate social distancing due to COVID-19. People with Special Needs seeking shelter would need to register prior to arrival. Registration can be arranged by calling 311 or visiting ocfl.net/PSN.

Monitor local media and Town of Oakland and Orange County’s social media for the latest updates.
