Hurricane / Storm Resources

Storm / Hurricane Preparations.

  • Monitor all local news and information.  Monitor Capri Bulletin Boards.
  • Follow Hurricane preparation guides available at local supermarkets, pharmacies and  online.
  • If an official Hurricane Watch or Warning is issued, you must immediately remove absolutely  all items from you balcony (regardless of size or weight).

During / After Storm Hits.

  • Do not use elevators.
  • Remain indoors.   Sudden and unexpected storm activity may occur after calm periods.
  • Be Cautious of Slippery Floors / Stairs.
  • If you lose water service , make sure that all faucets remain closed (specially if you have children).
  • In case of power failure, avoid flushing toilets.   The sewage system requires electricity for the pumps to work.   Under an extended power failure, flushing toilets may cause sewage to backup into the unit (especially on the ground floor).
