A personal message from Interim Executive Director, Paul Jess:
Hurricane Irma is a dangerous and potentially life-threatening Category 5 storm. With record-breaking wind speeds and a diameter twice as wide as the Florida peninsula, it goes on record as one of the strongest hurricanes in history.
I urge you to take the necessary precautions to keep yourself and your family safe.
