Community Watch on Friday will begin removing gate arms throughout The Villages for Tropical Storm Isaias, which is on target for reaching Florida this weekend.
Those who approach a gate in which the gate arm has been removed are asked to use caution and stop before proceeding. The process of reinstalling the gate arms will begin once the potential for sustained winds has subsided.
The Villages is proactively reviewing storm water basin levels and planning necessary water transfers as needed to accommodate the projected rainfall from the storm to alleviate the risk of flooding.
While some of the pool deck furniture is currently stacked due to social distancing, the furniture may be secured, if necessary.
