Out of an abundance of caution, the Seacrest Beach Homeowners’ Association has made the decision to suspend operations at the lagoon pool, the Seacrest Beach Café as well as tram service for today and tomorrow as we prepare for the arrival of tropical storm force winds this evening. It is expected all services will resume normal operating hours on Sunday provided the storm has moved through our area.
The center of the storm is expected to make landfall around 7:00 AM Saturday morning, but will be well into southeast Georgia by 7:00 PM. The area is expected to receive 2″ to 4″ of rain with some areas possibly seeing 6″. The storm has maximum sustained winds of 40mph and there is the potential that the storm could strengthen within the next twenty-four hours.
As of 12:06 PM central time, the South Walton Fire District is flying double red flags which means the beaches are closed to the public. There is a high surf advisory and a high risk of rip currents.
The Walton County Emergency Management organization has not issued any evacuation orders and they have not opend any shelters at this time. Walton County is currently under a Tropical Storm Warning, but all bridges are open. The Florida Highway Patrol will close bridges if sustained winds of 40mph come to our area.
Seacrest Beach Security operations are NOT impacted by the tropical storm. If you need to get in touch with them, you may call (850) 830-1657 If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
