TS Isaias Preparation
The coronavirus pandemic has hit our state and the nation (and world) with a destructive force akin to a hurricane. Some say COVID-19’s ravages, in many regards, are perhaps worse than a hurricane because hurricanes usually strike only a part of the state.
Whatever the comparisons may be, we can all agree that both COVID-19 and hurricanes are both unwelcomed visitors - impending company, Isaias, included! Isaias became a named storm this morning, Thursday, July 30th.
With first responders and resources already stretched paper thin in most municipalities as we continue to grapple with the ongoing, devastating effects of COVID-19, it is perhaps more important than ever that we do as much as we can to prepare ourselves for Tropical Storm Isaias.
The current forecasted track for TS Isaias, which, of course, is subject to change, shows the storm affecting the south Florida coast by Saturday evening/night. 
If you have not already done so, please take the time to review your church’s hurricane preparedness plan. Here are some resources: 

And, please make note of hurricane claim reporting instructions, should you need to report a claim:
