SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

Tropical Storm Ian will move off the east coast of Florida this 
morning and move slowly towards the southeast of the United States
later today into Friday. The following hazardous conditions can be
expected for South Florida:

* Storm Surge in flooded areas across Coastal Collier County will 
  continue to recede today. However, standing water in some areas 
  will still be common and could be 1 to 3 feet. Please do not 
  venture out into floodwater. Floodwater may contain hazardous 
  materials, such as downed power lines, hazardous waste, and 
  physical objects. You never know how deep floodwater is and what 
  may be in floodwater. The best way to protect yourself is to stay 
  out of floodwater and sheltered in place while water recedes. 
  Additional flooding may be possible today especially during high 
  tide. Please heed the advice of local emergency management 
  officials and first responders as search and rescue efforts are 
  ongoing.

* Hazardous marine, beach, and surf conditions are ongoing.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* SURGE:
Little to no additional surge impacts expected.

    - Community officials are now assessing the extent of actual 
      surge impacts accordingly across coastal Collier County.
    - Emergency response teams are attending to casualty situations 
      as needed.
    - Emergency work crews are restoring essential community 
      infrastructure as necessary.
    - If you have an emergency dial 9 1 1.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------

* EVACUATIONS:

- Do not enter evacuated areas until officials have 
given the all clear to return.

* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:

Do not attempt to return to evacuated areas until local authorities 
give the all clear. Allow time for officials to inspect bridges and 
overpasses and to mark washed-out roads.

If using a generator, avoid carbon monoxide poisoning by following 
instructions provided by the manufacturer. Operate your generator in 
a well-ventilated space outside of your living area and away from 
open doors and windows.

Problems with sewer backups can further contaminate standing flood 
waters. Keep children away from flood waters. Also, listen for boil 
water alerts as tap water may have become non-potable.

Be alert for flooded roads which could be compromised or littered 
with debris. Avoid travel until water levels subside and roads have 
been cleared. Do not drive through places where flood waters cover 
the road. Turn around, don't drown!
