Flagler College is continuing to monitor Hurricane Isaias, which is approximately 245 miles southeast of Nassau, Bahamas, moving northwest at 16 mph with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph and higher gusts. St. Augustine is currently within the National Hurricane Center’s 5-day Forecast Cone.

The National Hurricane Center has advised there is a risk of impacts from winds, heavy rainfall, and storm surge beginning this weekend along the northeastern Florida coast, and that interests in Florida should continue monitoring progress of this storm.

The College’s Hurricane Committee has begun meeting about the storm, and is in close contact with St. Johns County Emergency Management. Flagler has had extensive experience with preparing and dealing with hurricanes, and the College is also planning for changes that may be required due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As hurricane season runs through Nov. 30, now is a good time to learn more about how to prepare for tropical storms and hurricanes threatening St. Augustine and Flagler College.
