Announcement for Multiple Communities

Good afternoon McKinley Hyde Park Residents!

As we are sure you are aware, Gov. Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency in the state as rapidly growing Hurricane Irma, now upgraded to a Category 5 storm, is expected to make landfall later this week.

Our team is extremely busy carrying out hurricane preparedness protocol at all of our communities in Hyde Park and South Tampa.  You will see sandbags are being positioned, gutters are being cleaned, trees are being trimmed and as many necessary and preventative measures are being taken to prepare for the impending storm.  Because our first concern is for your safety, please stay alert to local weather and news and visit FLGetAPlan.com or RedCross.org today and follow the instructions to make a plan and get prepared.

Emergency officials have warned that the storm could dump more than ten inches of rain, unleash landslides and dangerous floods, as well as generate waves up to 23 feet as the storm draws closer. 

In case of emergency, please call:

Hyde Park/South Tampa 24 Hour Emergency Number:  813-629-5477

Austin Rothenbush - Senior Community Manager:  813-468-4450

Jeremy Whittaker - Community Manager:  517-648-6123

Please watch for further preparedness updates in the hours and days ahead.

Thank you!

Best regards,

The Hyde Park Team

Would like to know if we will be provided with sandbags for doors as well - or if we need to obtain our own. Thank you!

Are we aloud to tape the windows or will other protocol be taken for this? I am going out of town and want to make sure my apartment is secure or if there is anything that I need to do prior to leaving.

I would really like these questions answered. Is there going to be any protection provided for our windows? Can we fortify them ourselves?

Good evening McKinley Hyde Park Residents,

Thank you for reaching out with your questions. At this time we have taken all necessary preventative measures in preparation for the storm. We have deployed all sandbags and water removal pumps, placing them strategically at each of the communities based on flooding threats. We will not be boarding up the windows, and ask that you please do not attempt to do so yourself.

Please continue to monitor and follow the instructions of our local and state government officials. Stay safe, and don't hesitate to reach out to us directly with concerns. Thank you!

Best Regards,

The Hyde Park Team
