Lake County Emergency Management is tracking Tropical Depression 9.
“East-Central Florida impacts are currently forecasted to be heavy rainfall of three to seven inches through Thursday with rainy, squally weather and a chance for isolated tornadoes,” said Tommy Carpenter, Manager of Lake County Emergency Management. “There is still some uncertainty in the forecast as to how strong Tropical Depression 9 will develop and the entirety of impacts to Lake County, so we are urging residents to make proper preparations, remain weather aware, ensure they have a working NOAA weather radio and monitor local media outlets.”
Sandbags are available at five Lake County fire stations in Eustis, Astor, Altoona, Fruitland Park and Clermont. Residents must bring their own shovels, and are allowed to take 20 bags of sand per household.
