Governor Scott declares state of emergency ahead of Irma
Posted: Sep 04, 2017 5:08 PM EDT Updated: Sep 04, 2017 8:10 PM EDT
Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for the entire state in anticipation of Hurricane Irma.
As of 5 p.m. Monday, Irma was a Category 4 and nearing the Leeward Islands.
The 5 p.m. forecast issued by the National Hurricane Center puts much of South Florida — including a portion of Collier County — in the 5-day cone.
By declaring a state of emergency in all 67 Florida counties, Scott is ensuring that local governments have ample time, resources and flexibility to get prepared for the dangerous storm.
Statement from Gov. Rick Scott
“Hurricane Irma is a major and life-threatening storm and Florida must be prepared. I have continued to be briefed by the Florida Division of Emergency Management on Hurricane Irma and current forecast models have Florida in Irma’s path – potentially impacting millions of Floridians. Today, given these forecasts and the intensity of this storm, I have declared a state of emergency for every county in Florida to make certain that state, federal and local governments are able to work together and make sure resources are dispersed to local communities as we get prepared for this storm. In Florida, we always prepare for the worst and hope for the best and while the exact path of Irma is not absolutely known at this time, we cannot afford to not be prepared. This state of emergency allows our emergency management officials to act swiftly in the best interest of Floridians without the burden of bureaucracy or red tape.
In Florida, we know that the best way to protect our families in severe weather is to have a plan. I urge all Floridians to remain vigilant and stay alert to local weather and news and visit FLGetAPlan.com today as we all prepare for Hurricane Irma. We will keep monitoring and issuing updates on Hurricane Irma as it approaches Florida.”

EWC TO RECEIVE $8.4 MILLION INVESTMENT AS MAYOR ANNOUNCES
SAFER NEIGHBORHOODS INVESTMENT PLAN
Investments to benefit neighborhood served by EWC
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 5, 2017 – Demonstrating his continued commitment to safer neighborhoods and communities, Mayor Lenny Curry joined Edward Waters College (EWC) President Nat Glover and City officials to announce one of his Safer Neighborhoods investments that will benefit the northwest Jacksonville community. The City of Jacksonville’s 2017-18 budget includes support for safety improvements and infrastructure enhancements at the local college that is Florida’s oldest independent institution of higher learning established for the education of African Americans. More than $8 million has been committed to support the university’s efforts to refurbish a long-challenged dormitory and build a community field.
“This is a real investment where there is a real need,” said Mayor Curry. “As its history affirms, Edward Waters College should be a beacon of light for our community.”
EWC President Nat Glover approached the mayor earlier this year to request support for two challenges he felt were impeding the growth and progress of the university. Dormitory conditions resulting in mold and unhealthy environments were affecting recruitment and retention efforts. The long-time absence of an on-campus athletic field required the university to leave its campus and community for football games, played at local high schools. This void which robs the school of a home spirited atmosphere, as expressed by Glover, also prevents the community from embracing and accessing the campus. A new community field with a track will be a resource to Health Zone 1, a community wrought with health, safety and education disparities.
In an effort to address these needs which are aligned with the mayor’s commitment to public safety, Mayor Curry has designated $4.4 million in funds for the EWC dormitories, and $4 million for the development of a community field. The mayor will present his full budget and “Safer Neighborhoods” investment plan to City Council on July 17th. Pending City Council approval, the budget will take effect Oct. 1.
