Good morning Okeechobee! I hope this morning finds everyone well and safe. Please stay off the roads and let us determine the conditions of the roads, power lines down and assess the damages, before going out.
“My dear friends, the storm has passed over our community. All/Most of us are safe, though wearied perhaps by our ordeal. Our concerns now are for what we do not know, what we cannot see, what we cannot help quite yet, except by bringing our prayers to the Lord. Let us do that now, in thanksgiving for our lives and in heartfelt intercession for our community and those we love.” (Rev. Thomas L. Weitzel)
I will post information as it becomes available. Again I encourage everyone to stay in their homes as the remnants of Matthew are still very active.
Road conditions: South on Hwy 441 clear to the county line; power is on; no road obstructions; 15B also clear
STRONGLY RECOMMEND TO STAY OFF ROADS; WIND IS EXTREMELY STRONGFast Break is open and has fuel
