The OABA office is in the projected cone of hurricane Irma, currently a category 5 at 180 mph maximum sustained winds. In order to prepare our families and neighbors for the storm our office will be closed Friday, Sept.8th and Monday, Sept.11th.
The following came from Senator Marco Rubio, with some good website information.
Hurricane Irma is rapidly approaching Florida and I hope you will take a couple of minutes to read this email and the information included about how you can be prepared.
Hurricane Irma is one of the strongest - if not soon to be the strongest - Hurricanes ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean. This is not to be taken lightly. This hurricane will cause significant damage and we must take these days leading up to landfall seriously.
If you live in Florida, know your zone and follow your local instructions for evacuations if given and abide by the law. Have an emergency communication plan with your family and friends in place and put together a go-bag in case evacuations are called for your home.
