    The only thing certain about this tropical storm is that it exists and we are prepared for it. If we do have tropical storm or Cat 1 weather conditions, it will be a few days from now. The best of weather forecasters, from the National Hurricane Center to Bryan Norcross, cannot make a reliable forecast about this particular storm at this point. There will be major changes to the forecasted track over the next couple of days, so it is important not to overreact to any single forecast. We have a responsibility to our patients, and each other, to be calm and not provoke anxiety.

    As of now, we are at Level 3, our lowest level of activation. This means we are monitoring and assessing this potential storm through our Department of Emergency Preparedness in collaboration with the Miami-Dade County Department of Emergency Management, the Department of Health, Florida State Region 7, and the State of Florida. There are no changes to normal operations. Your chain of command through your department remains the same. Your responsibility is to stay informed, pay attention to potential changes in staffing and schedules, fulfill your preparation responsibilities to home and family now so you are able to meet your obligation to care for our patients during bad weather, if it comes.

    We will keep you informed as it develops.
