Thank you to all who reached out with words of support and encouragement during the worst of Hurricane Ian. We are able to report that all FLR staff and the FLR network have come through well and services, with only a few minor hiccups, are up and running for our members.
Please keep those impacted by this terrible storm in your thoughts. While the FLR network will play an important role in helping our communities recover, the immediate concern is for the health and safety of those affected.
State and National leaders have declared a state of emergency ahead of Hurricane Ian which is expected to impact the Florida peninsula beginning as early as Wednesday morning, September 28.
FLR is monitoring this system and is prepared to handle the impacts with engineers on call throughout the storm. As always, members and affiliates needing assistance are encouraged to contact the FLR Network Operations Center (https://noc.flrnet.org/) with any issue that comes up.
