Update on TS Erika #2

As of Sunday morning, TS Erika appears to be substantially weakening and moving west. It may be downgraded to a Tropical Wave or Depression.  Projections show it going over Cuba and then maybe heading north into the Gulf where it could strengthen again.  Some projections show it heading WNW from there or North towards Tallahassee.

At this time no State of Emergency has been declared in the City of Lauderhill.  Expectations are mild winds, rain and the potential for flooding.

A discussion occurred between the City Manager, City Attorney, City Clerk and Mayor about proceeding with the Monday City Commission Meeting and holding an Emergency Meeting today to discuss it with the City Commission.  Given the downgrading and direction of the storm, it was felt that no Emergency Meeting is necessary at this time and we can proceed with the meeting on Monday as planned.

However, if the storm should drastically change in the next 24 - 36 hours, then any decisions are subject to change.
