An update on a few items related to the property as well as the approach of Hurricane Michael. As with Florence, the forecast varies as to how high the winds may be and how much rain we may receive. With the hurricane now at CAT 4 status it very well could still be packing a good punch when it passes through our area so we are now installing the shutters at the fitness center and preparing for potential high winds. We have also cleaned out all known drainage issues on the property and the on-site crew has also eliminated a potential flood issue in the Mathews Drive system that would result in a back-up in our ability to drain the lagoons and avoid potential flooding. With winds predicted to arrive starting tonight and going through tomorrow, we are toggling the gates open this evening to avoid any wind, tree or electrical issues with the gate systems. Also, it appears that one of the electrical contactors on the property that controls several of the outdoor pole light circuits burned up last night. This requires a new contactor to be installed and we are attempting to locate the part right now. It will take several hours to change out without any further complications or problems. Given everything going on at the moment, it may take a few days before this repair is completed.
We’keep you all informed of any further developments or other information you may need to know. Everybody be safe!
