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.
If using a generator, avoid carbon monoxide poisoning by following instructions by the manufacturer. Make sure that the generator is run in a well ventilated space.
