~ Hurricane Preparedness ~
To track the predicted path of a tropical storm or hurricane, obtain the information from the NOAA, National Hurricane Center, Miami FL. Look for the App for your smart phone, for example  
To track the intensity of the storm, to see the areas of heavy rain for example, use a Weather App that provides radar information, for example 
For an EXTREMELY PRECISE map of the projected path of the storm, (you can zoom in to street level) obtain the ESRI Hurricane and Cyclone App, for example  
The HOA/Tropical Isles does not assist in having hurricane shutters installed or removed. All owners are responsible for the installation and removal of hurricane shutters on their townhomes. The HOA may offer advice, but is not responsible for actions taken (or not taken) by home owners. Windows, doors and the interior of townhomes are the responsibility of homeowners, so any damage resulting from homeowners failing to install hurricane shutters is the homeowners responsibility. After the storm has passed, the HOA will provide a deadline to home owners for having hurricane shutters removed.
Seasonal Owners are strongly advised to employ a home watch service that includes monitoring of potential powerful storms and provides hurricane shutters installation and removal (with owner pre-approval). You are invited to use Contact Us and send a request to Bob Spies for my personal (not Board) recommendation for who provides this service to me.    
If you have replaced your townhomes windows with Hurricane Rated windows, please inform Carmen so that she may update our community database to indicate your home will not require hurricane shutters in advance of a hurricane.
