Town of LaCrosse Florida-TOLC

Town of LaCrosse Florida-TOLC Welcome to the Town of LaCrosse a small rural community situated in the northwest portion of Alachua County.
(1)

Historically the town is based on agriculture and for many years the Packing Shed. Owned by R. G. Thomas and now Stephen Davis,the packing shed has been a significant part of the town's history. There are also other small businesses in town, and many of our residents work in the nearby City of Gainesville, home of the University of Florida and the University of Florida Medical Center, the VA Medical Center, and Santa Fe College. The town is also located conveniently close to shopping in both the City of Gainesville and the City of Alachua and provides easy access to the many recreational activities offered in North Florida. LaCrosse has its own fire department, and contracts with Alachua County to provide rural fire rescue services to county residents within an approximate 84 square mile area surrounding the town. The Town of LaCrosse Fire Department is staffed by certified paid firefighters 24-7, and has the longstanding support of actively involved volunteer firefighters.

4 P.M. UPDATE: 6,840 accounts remain without power at this time. Restoration is expected to be substantially complete in the Lake City, Keystone, Palatka and Salt Springs Districts this evening. Crews will work through the night in the Orange Park and Gainesville Districts, but with a limited number of linemen. Crews from across the co-op will converge in these districts Saturday to restore power to members as quickly and as safely as possible. We cannot give estimated times of restorations or say which areas of the districts will have their power restored tonight or Saturday. Please refer to your electric bill to see which district you live in.

If you require power for medical reasons, please make accommodations now. We cannot guarantee your service will be restored tonight.

8:15 A.M. UPDATE: Thursday’s storm caused extensive damage to our system. We currently have hundreds of separate outages, and estimated times of restoration are not available. Our Call Center can also not give estimates and is currently experiencing heavy call volumes. If you have internet access, you can report an outage at outagereport.clayelectric.com. To report a life threatening situation, call 911.

EARLIER TODAY: We are working as quickly and as safely as possible to restore services lost after Thursday's storms. We currently have about 18,000 accounts without power after a high of about 63,000 overnight. Our restoration efforts are focused on public safety and restoring power to the most members at one time. Thank you for your patience.

Tropical a Storm Nestor

A storm surge of 3 to 5 feet is possible along the Nature Coast, with the water reaching the highest levels during times of high tide at 5 am early Saturday. The heaviest rain bands will move through overnight and last through midday Saturday. Storm totals will range from around 3 or 4 inches near the coast, to 2 or 3 inches farther inland.
Wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph are possible in the stronger rain bands near the coast, with gusts up to 40 mph possible near Gainesville and Ocala, where a Wind Advisory is also in effect. An isolated tornado is possible with any thunderstorm activity early Saturday.

The ToLC so far is not in the path of this weather front. If anything changes we will do our best to update information....

The ToLC so far is not in the path of this weather front. If anything changes we will do our best to update information.

*******************

Potential Tropical Cyclone Sixteen is expected to become Subtropical Storm Nestor as it moves over the Gulf of Mexico and toward Florida later today.

Tropical storm conditions and a dangerous storm surge are forecast to reach coastal areas of the panhandle and west-central Florida by Friday evening.

Storm Surge Warning
A Storm Surge Warning has been issued from Indian Pass to Clearwater Beach, where a large and expanding area of onshore tropical storm force winds are expected to push the water into the coast for hours. An inundation of three to five feet above normally dry ground is expected from Indian Pass to Crystal River, including the vulnerable low-lying areas around Cedar Key. An inundation of 2 to 4 feet of water above dry ground is possible from Crystal River to Clearwater Beach, with 1 to 2 feet of surge possible in and around Tampa Bay.

The National Hurricane Center has noted that surge-related flooding can vary greatly over short distances. How high the water may get in your neighborhood depends heavily on the timing of the highest water levels as they relate to the tidal cycle. Residents in an evacuation zone are encouraged to listen to local officials for further information and possible evacuation orders.

Tropical Storm Warning
A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect from the Alabama state line to the Nature Coast. Inland Tropical Storm Warnings are also in effect for the entire Floridan Panhandle, including Tallahassee, Marianna and Crestview. Tropical storm force wind gusts and periods of heavy rain could begin along the coast in the warned area as early as Friday evening, with those conditions likely spreading inland overnight.

DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 AM EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Dorian was located
near latitude 29.2 North, longitude 79.5 West. Dorian is moving
toward the north-northwest near 8 mph (13 km/h), and a northwest or
north-northwest motion is expected through this morning. A turn
toward the north is forecast by this evening, followed by a turn
toward the north-northeast on Thursday morning. On this track, the
core of Hurricane Dorian will move dangerously close to the Florida
east coast and the Georgia coast through tonight. The center of
Dorian is forecast to move near or over the coast of South Carolina
and North Carolina Thursday through Friday morning.

Maximum sustained winds are near 105 mph (165 km/h) with higher
gusts. Some weakening is expected during the next couple of days,
and Dorian is expected to remain a powerful hurricane during the
next few days.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) from the
center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175
miles (280 km).

The minimum central pressure reported by an Air Force Reserve Unit
Hurricane Hunter aircraft is 963 mb (28.44 inches).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND: Tropical storm conditions are currently affecting portions of
the northeastern coast of Florida, and should begin along the
Georgia coast later this morning.

Hurricane conditions are expected somewhere within the Hurricane
Warning area in Florida today. Tropical storm conditions will begin
within the Hurricane Warning area in the Carolinas later today, with
hurricane conditions by tonight.

STORM SURGE: The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the
tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by
rising waters moving inland from the shoreline. The water could
reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated
areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

Isle of Palms to Myrtle Beach SC...5 to 8 ft
Savannah River to Isle of Palms SC...4 to 7 ft
Myrtle Beach SC to Cape Lookout NC...4 to 7 ft
Cape Lookout NC to Duck NC, including Pamlico and Albemarle Sounds
and the Neuse and Pamlico Rivers...4 to 6 ft
Volusia/Brevard County Line FL to Savannah River...3 to 5 ft
Sebastian Inlet FL to Volusia/Brevard County Line FL...2 to 4 ft
Duck NC to Poquoson VA, including Hampton Roads...2 to 4 ft

Water levels could begin to rise well in advance of the arrival of
strong winds. The surge will be accompanied by large and
destructive waves. Surge-related flooding depends on the how close
the center of Dorian comes to the coast, and can vary greatly over
short distances. For information specific to your area, please see
products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast
office.

RAINFALL: Dorian is expected to produce the following rainfall
totals through Friday:

Coastal Carolinas...5 to 10 inches, isolated 15 inches.
Atlantic Coast from Daytona Beach, Florida to the Georgia-South
Carolina border...3 to 6 inches, with isolated 9 inches near the
Georgia coast.
Southeast Virginia...3 to 6 inches.

This rainfall may cause life-threatening flash floods.

SURF: Large swells will affect the northwestern Bahamas, and
the entire southeastern United States coast from Florida through
North Carolina during the next several days. These swells are
likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
Please consult products from your local weather office.

TORNADOES: A tornado or two are possible near the immediate east
coast of Florida through tonight. This risk will shift to along the
immediate Georgia coast and the coastal Carolinas today into
Thursday.

DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 AM EDT (0900 UTC), the eye of Hurricane Dorian was located
by NOAA Doppler radar near latitude 26.9 North, longitude 78.4 West.
Dorian is stationary just north of Grand Bahama Island. A slow
north-northwestward motion is expected to begin this morning. A
turn to the north is forecast by Wednesday evening, followed by a
turn to the north-northeast Thursday morning. On this track, the
core of extremely dangerous Hurricane Dorian will continue to pound
Grand Bahama Island today. The hurricane will then move dangerously
close to the Florida east coast late today through Wednesday
evening, very near the Georgia and South Carolina coasts Wednesday
night and Thursday, and near or over the North Carolina coast late
Thursday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 120 mph (195 km/h) with higher
gusts. Dorian is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson
Hurricane Wind Scale. Dorian is expected to remain a powerful
hurricane during the next couple of days.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the
center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 160
miles (260 km). A wind gust to 61 mph (98 km/h) was recently
reported at Juno Beach Pier, Florida.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 950 mb (28.06 inches).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND: Devastating hurricane conditions continue on Grand Bahama
Island.

Hurricane conditions are expected within the Hurricane Warning area
in Florida by this evening. Hurricane conditions are possible in
the Hurricane Watch area beginning Wednesday.

In South Florida, tropical storm conditions are expected within the
Tropical Storm Warning area through today, and are possible in the
Tropical Storm Watch area through this morning. Along the coast of
northeastern Florida and Georgia, tropical storm conditions are
expected within the Tropical Storm Warning area on Wednesday.

STORM SURGE: A life-threatening storm surge will raise water levels
by as much as 10 to 15 feet above normal tide levels in areas of
onshore winds on Grand Bahama Island. Near the coast, the surge
will be accompanied by large and destructive waves. Water levels
should very slowly subside on the Abaco Islands today.

The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the tide will cause
normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters
moving inland from the shoreline. The water could reach the
following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated areas if
the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

Lantana FL to South Santee River SC...4 to 7 ft
North of Deerfield Beach FL to Lantana FL...2 to 4 ft

Water levels could begin to rise well in advance of the arrival of
strong winds. The surge will be accompanied by large and
destructive waves. Surge-related flooding depends on the how close
the center of Dorian comes to the coast, and can vary greatly over
short distances. For information specific to your area, please see
products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast
office.

RAINFALL: Dorian is expected to produce the following rainfall
totals through Friday:

Northwestern Bahamas...Additional 3 to 6 inches, isolated storm
totals over 30 inches.
Coastal Carolinas...5 to 10 inches, isolated 15 inches.
Atlantic Coast from the Florida peninsula north of West Palm Beach
through Georgia...3 to 6 inches, isolated 9 inches.
Southeast Virginia...2 to 4 inches, isolated 6 inches.

This rainfall may cause life-threatening flash floods.

SURF: Large swells are affecting the northwestern Bahamas, the
Florida east coast, and the coast of Georgia. These swells are
expected to spread northward along much of the remainder of the
southeastern United States coast during the next couple of days.
These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip
current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather
office.

TORNADOES: A tornado or two is possible near the immediate east
coast of Florida through tonight. This risk will shift to immediate
coastal Georgia and the coastal Carolinas on Wednesday into
Thursday.
