Good Morning,

As there is still some uncertainty of the level of impact Dorian may have here in the Lowcountry, the Association wanted to mention a few items to keep in mind – hopefully these measures will not be needed, but good items to know.

It will be important for all residents to secure all outside items at your home.  Unsecured items can become flying missiles causing damage to your home, your neighbor’s home and any vehicles stored outside.

Also important is to have on hand copies of your insurance policies so any claim for storm damage can be immediately reported to your agent.

The Association has been busily preparing for Dorian’s arrival.  Irrigation clocks are off until evaluation of any storm damage. Builders are aware of the need to insure their construction sites are clear of any debris that could cause damage. Amenity Centers and community pools will be closed beginning today as crews store and secure pool furniture in preparation of the storm.  Pools will remain closed until systems are evaluated for any possible damage post-storm.

We continue to hope the impact will be minimal.  Below is a list FEMA suggests for an emergency basic supply list for events such as Dorian – please prepare and stay safe.  Thank you.

Water one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation
Food at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
Battery-powered or hand crank 
radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both
Flashlight and extra batteries
First aid kit
Whistle to signal for help
Dust mask, to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place
Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
Can opener for food (if kit contains canned food)
Local maps

FEMA also notes you may want to consider gathering these items as well:

Prescription medications and glasses
Infant formula and diapers
Pet food and extra water for your pet
Important family documents such as copies of insurance policies,
identification and bank account records in a waterproof, portable container
Cash or traveler’s checks and change
Emergency reference material such as a first aid book or information
Sleeping bag or warm blanket for each person.
Complete change of clothing including a long sleeved shirt, long pants and sturdy shoes.
Household chlorine bleach and medicine dropper – When diluted nine parts water to one part bleach, bleach can be used as a disinfectant. Or in an emergency, you can use it to treat water by using 16 drops of regular household liquid bleach per gallon of water. Do not use scented, color safe or bleaches with added cleaners.
Fire Extinguisher
Matches in a waterproof container
Feminine supplies and personal hygiene items
Mess kits, paper cups, plates and plastic utensils, paper towels
Paper and pencil
Books, games, puzzles or other activities for children
