Irma track Monday morning

We are glad to report that the worst of Hurricane Irma has passed by Sant Rosa Beach, Rosemary Beach and areas well to the east of us.

There was no storm surge and winds were strong enough to bring down some limbs but there does not appear to be damage to structures.  Rains thus far have been infrequent and relatively light, and we are monitoring radar for possibility of heavier bands throughout the day.
