The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is currently tracking Tropical Storm Isaias, which was downgraded from hurricane status in the evening hours of Saturday, August 1.
As of the morning of Sunday, August 2, Tropical Storm Isaias was already located 45 miles east of Fort Lauderdale's coast and heading north. All Hurricane Warnings in South Florida have been cancelled, and the Tropical Storm Warning is only in effect for Palm Beach County and the coastal areas of Broward County. Please monitor www.nhc.noaa.gov and local news outlets for forecast updates.
The greater Sunrise area is still likely to experience wind gusts and heavy rainfall throughout Sunday.
We strongly advise residents to take this opportunity to review their household emergency plan and stock at least 7 days of hurricane supplies during this season. Preparedness resources are available at www.sunrisefl.gov/hurricane.
