Collier County emergency management officials on Saturday called for the voluntary evacuation of parts of the county. The evacuation alert followed the announcement of school closings on Monday and the opening Sunday of some emergency shelters as the area continued under a hurricane warning.
Areas of Collier County west and south of U.S. 41 and nearby low lying areas "may be subject to significant storm surge and flooding," Collier County Emergency Management announced. People living in modular and mobile homes in the unincorporated areas of the county were also advised that they "may wish to relocate to family, friends, hotels or shelters in areas well inland of the coast."
Marco Island officials said Saturday they are recommending that residents evacuate, and would have an announcement possibly late Saturday about mandatory evacuations.
Shelters will be opened at 10 a.m. Sunday in the following schools:
***Immokalee High School, 701 Immokalee Drive, Immokalee.
***Immokalee Middle School, 401 9th St., Immokalee.
***Golden Gate High School, 2925 Titan Way, Naples.
***Cypress Palm Middle School, 4255 18th Ave N.E., Naples.
***Palmetto Ridge High School, also opening, is a special needs shelter that required preregistration.
***North Collier Regional Park (with limited pet friendly services), 15000 Livingston Road., Naples.
Collier and Lee County district schools will be closed on Monday, Aug. 27, officials of both districts announced Saturday.
In announcing the closing Saturday afternoon, Collier schools Supt. Kamela Patton said the district offices would be closed and all school activities are canceled.
"An announcement regarding the reopening of schools will be made sometime on Monday after the storm passes, an all-clear is issued, and an assessment of electrical service and any damage has been completed," the district said in a statement.
While the exact impact of the storm in Lee is not known, officials believe there is the potential for torrential rain, possible flooding in various areas of Lee County and high winds that could cause power outages.
As the storm passes, as soon as possible Monday pre-identified Lee County school District staff will perform an assessment on District facilities, roadways, etc. to gauge the condition of schools, offices and other vital infrastructure essential to the operation of the school system.
After this assessment Monday a decision will be made about the status of the Lee County school District moving forward during the week, and that information/decision will be shared with the media and community as soon as possible.
