Tropical Depression 13

While we don’t usually issue alerts about Tropical Depressions, this is scheduled to become a Tropical Storm by 2p Friday (21 AUG), and current projections put it as a Category 1 Hurricane and passing directly across Lee County, Florida late Monday through early Tuesday morning. While we think the final storm  track will be lessened in strength and more westward, we are watching its progression very carefully.

We will activate appropriate phased Disaster Plans for PriorityPLUS clients as the storms strength and track becomes clearer.

Tropical Storm JOSEPHINE

Tropical Storm Josephine is the tenth named storm of the Atlantic season. It is projected to be downgraded to a Tropical Depression by Monday morning, and its projected path should pose no threat to the southeastern United States.

Hurricane ISAIAS

ISAIAS has reached Category 1 Hurricane strength as of Friday (31 JUL). The storm track continues to move northward and the center of the storm is expected to pass just off the east coast of Florida late Saturday night and Sunday, and then taking a track along the eastern seaboard of the United States.  

FLORIDA EAST COAST CLIENTS:  We have activated PHASE 1 Disaster Plans for all Priority Assurance© clients in the affected region from the Upper Keys to Jacksonville, FL. This includes a more aggressive backup schedule and the implementation of offsite rapid-failover backups where applicable. Be prepared for power and Internet outages in your area, particularly Palm Beach northward to Stuart.
We do not anticipate moving to PHASE 2 (equipment relocation and hot site activation) for this storm.

FLORIDA WEST COAST CLIENTS: This storm track is no longer threatening the gulf coast region; at most we anticipate minimal impact for our coastal clients (primarily affecting power and Internet access); coastal clients may experience high tides and surf, but overall we expect there to be no appreciable wind or increased rain associated with this storm for our area.
We are, however, monitoring the track closely, and will keep this page updated.

Tropical Storm GONZALO

Tropical Storm GONZALO formed in the Atlantic Wed (22 JUL), and is expected to grow to hurricane strength on Thursday (23 JUL). Its track over the Windward Islands will likely lessen its strength to Tropical Storm, but entering the warm waters southeast of Jamaica could cause it to re-strengthen.

We don’t anticipate any direct impacts to our primary service areas before Thursday (30 JUL). We are watching this storm carefully and will activate Client Disaster Plans well in advance if the situation warrants.

Tropical Storm FAY

Tropical Storm FAY continues moving up the northeastern coast of the United States and poses no direct threat to clients or GrU data centers.

Tropical Storm CRISTOBL was designated as the third named storm of the 2020 season on 02 JUN 2020. It is currently located off the coast of southern Mexico, and its likely track is anticipated to be northward towards Louisiana and Texas.
