Hurricane Elsa is expected to move over western Cuba for the next few hours, and reach portions of the west coast of Florida on Tuesday and Wednesday. A tropical storm warning has been issued for the Fort Meyers area south to Marco Island. A tropical storm watch has been issued for the coastal areas north of Fort Meyers.

As many of you are aware, Hurricane Elsa is moving rapidly towards the south coast of Hispaniola at this time. There is an increasing risk of storm surge, wind, and rainfall impacts spreading northward along the Florida Peninsula early Tuesday morning. The forecast uncertainty remains larger than usual due to Elsa’s potential interaction with the islands of Hispaniola and Cuba this weekend.

The safety and security of our residents and team members are our top priority. We are taking all the necessary steps and precautions for our residents and will closely monitor any changes to the storms’ path that may affect our communities.
