The National Hurricane Center has released its latest advisory for Subtropical Storm Nicole: Nicole is expected to strengthen to a tropical storm or possibly a hurricane, bringing storm surge, heavy rains and flooding to Florida beginning Wednesday. I encourage everyone to pay close attention to this storm and take all precautions necessary to protect yourself, your family, your property and business.

Wherever you live in Florida, UF/IFAS Extension has resources that can help you make quick and informed decisions about what to do before, during and after the storm.

The Disaster Preparation and Recovery website ( is a comprehensive guide in English and Spanish that includes the UF/IFAS Extension Disaster Handbook as well as helpful tips, publications, videos and infographics, and contact information for your local UF/IFAS Extension office.

The Florida Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN) ( is another great place to go for information. Florida EDEN is part of a nationwide effort of state Cooperative Extension Services to reduce the impact of disasters through research-based information.
