An Update from the Mayor and Commission
Sunday, September 1, 2019 - 10:40 am
A tropical storm watch is in effect for Tamarac and all of Broward County. Hurricane Dorian is now a category 5 storm and the forecast cone shifted slightly closer to the Florida coast overnight, although it’s still expected to stay offshore.
According to the latest forecast, tropical storm-force wind gusts may start locally sometime Monday morning and are possible through Wednesday morning. We’re not expecting sustained tropical storm-force winds, but that could change. The latest forecast indicates we could receive 2 – 4 inches of rain, with some local areas possibly experiencing up to 6 inches.
The City urges everyone to continue to monitor this storm carefully. Uncertainty remains in Dorian’s exact track. Small changes to the forecast will mean big differences in impacts at any given location. Remain vigilant until the storm has passed and continue to monitor local news or visit www.nhc.noaa.gov
