SITUATION OVERVIEW  
------------------  
 
AT 2 PM EDT, ALL TROPICAL STORM WARNINGS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA HAVE  
BEEN DISCONTINUED.  
 
INITIAL REPORTS INDICATE SUBSTANTIAL WIND DAMAGE AND FLOODING IN  
NUMEROUS LOCATIONS ACROSS EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. DUE TO WIDESPREAD HEAVY  
RAINS BETWEEN 6 TO 10" (LOCALLY HIGHER), SEVERAL RIVERS AND STREAMS ARE  
RUNNING HIGH ACROSS PARTS OF THE AREA. STANDING WATER OVER SOME  
ROADWAYS AND ALONG THE BANKS OF CREEKS AND STREAMS WILL REMAIN A  
CONCERN OVER THE NEXT DAY OR TWO.  
 
RESIDENTS AND VISITORS SHOULD REMAIN CAUTIOUS AFTER THE STORM, AND  
CONTINUE TO FOLLOW THE ADVISE OF LOCAL OFFICIALS.  
 
THIS IS THE FINAL HURRICANE LOCAL STATEMENT THAT WILL BE ISSUED BY THE  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORECAST OFFICE IN MELBOURNE, FLORIDA. FOR  
WEATHER INFORMATION FOR THE EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA AREA, VISIT  
WWW.WEATHER.GOV/MELBOURNE. THE LATEST INFORMATION ON IRMA CAN BE FOUND  
ON THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER'S WEBSITE AT WWW.NHC.NOAA.GOV.  
 
POTENTIAL IMPACTS  
-----------------  
 
* WIND:  
LITTLE TO NO IMPACTS ARE ANTICIPATED AT THIS TIME ACROSS EAST CENTRAL  
FLORIDA.  
 
* OTHER COASTAL HAZARDS:  
CONTINUED HIGH SURF WILL COMBINE WITH SIGNIFICANT BEACH EROSION FROM  
HURRICANE IRMA TO PRODUCE POTENTIAL FOR MINOR COASTAL FLOODING AROUND  
THE TIME OF HIGH TIDE THIS AFTERNOON AND AGAIN OVERNIGHT TONIGHT.  
 
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS  
----------------------------------  
 
* EVACUATIONS:  
DO NOT RETURN TO EVACUATED AREAS UNTIL IT IS SAFE. LISTEN FOR THE ALL-  
CLEAR SIGNAL FROM LOCAL AUTHORITIES.  
 
* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:  
THOSE WHO RODE OUT THE STORM AWAY FROM THEIR HOME OR BUSINESS ARE  
LIKELY ANXIOUS TO RETURN. HOWEVER, ALLOW SOME TIME FOR WORK CREWS TO  
MAKE A CLEAR PATH FOR EMERGENCY VEHICLES. DOWNED POWER LINES AND  
TREES MAY BE BLOCKING ROADS AND FLOOD WATERS MAY HAVE WASHED OUT OR  
OVERSPREAD SECTIONS OF KEY TRAVEL ROUTES. TRAFFIC LIGHTS MAY ALSO BE  
OUT OF SERVICE.  
 
DO NOT GO SIGHTSEEING WITHIN IMPACTED COMMUNITIES SIMPLY TO OBSERVE  
STORM DAMAGE. SIGHTSEERS CAN INTERFERE WITH THE TIMELINESS OF  
RESCUERS AND FIRST RESPONDERS TO NEEDLESSLY JEOPARDIZE LIVES.

INSTRUCTIONS BY THE MANUFACTURER. MAKE SURE THAT THE GENERATOR IS RUN
