Dear Bloom at St. Petersburg Residents, Families & Friends:
In furtherance of our prior communications, please know that ownership, along with our Bloom at St. Petersburg Team, continue to closely monitor Eta and its potential impact on our Bloom at St. Petersburg community.
Eta has strengthened to a Hurricane and is currently moving north-northeast at 10mph. Maximum sustained winds are near 75mph. Hurricane Eta is expected to pass closer to the Florida West Coast and weaken in intensity to a Strong Tropical Storm later today, before passing Pinellas County. Eta is expected to weaken further into a weak Tropical Storm after it makes landfall Thursday morning near Cedar Key 147 miles north of St. Petersburg.
Bloom has its storm preparedness plan in place to ensure the safety of our residents and staff. Our generator has been tested and we have enough emergency medical and food supply. We intend to increasing staffing tonight.
In the event of a power outage, our servers, telephones, and e-mail capabilities may be impacted if you're trying to reach our local team / Executive Directors.
Scott and Tony Kantor, and Bradley Dubin
