All RV’ers and RV interests in the Florida Keys and on the Gulf Coast of the FL Peninsula should pay close attention to the National Hurricane Center forecasts of Hurricane Elsa this holiday weekend.

Tropical Storm Watch for the Florida Keys. Primary hazards are winds 40-50 mph gusting to 65 mph, 2-4 inches of rain that may cause some flash flooding, a 1-2 foot storm surge and the risk of brief tornadoes.

Tropical Storm Elsa is near Jamaica this morning. Elsa is moving to the west-northwest at 13 mph; its maximum sustained wind speeds are 65 mph.

This storm will impact the FL Keys starting Monday. The strength of the storm will depend in large part on its exact track across Jamaica and Cuba, but at this time it will likely remain a tropical storm (and not hurricane) as it heads into the Gulf of Mexico.

If you are in the FL Keys, please be ready for very strong winds tomorrow, along with flash flooding in low lying areas. Storm surge will be modest (1-2 feet) but if you are on the immediate waterfront, be prepared. Please heed any requests local emergency management officials make for RV’s and RV’ers.

If you are on the FL Gulf Coast or northern FL, please remain aware of, and informed about, this storm. Your local emergency management officials might be asking you to take actions tomorrow or early in the week, Today and tomorrow would be a good time to ensure you have your rig or tow vehicle fueled and think of where you might go if you were asked to evacuate or just do not wish to deal with this storm.

If you are along the northeast FL, GA, or SC coasts, continue to monitor this storm, as it may impact your area in the middle to latter part of this week.
