We're watching Tropical Storm Zeta that's expected to enter the southern Gulf over the next day. Once Zeta gets into the Gulf, it's presently forecast to become a hurricane before impacting the northern Gulf on Wednesday.
As of Sunday evening, no mandatory evacuation of the Marina's slips has been issued. But it's important to note that the Gulf waters, including the Sound, will become quite rough and choppy well ahead of Zeta's landfall. Depending on Zeta's progress, an evacuation order could be issued on Monday.
So, for anyone who plans to move their boat BEFORE an order is issued (which is always advised anyway!!), please keep an eye on the Marine Forecast which is presently indicating strong east winds and increasing seas into Tuesday evening and then tropical storm conditions on Wednesday.
Tenants should watch their email and this site for any updates to the Marina's status.
