While Hurricane Nicole has left the Jupiter area, the Town has experienced some minor flooding and damage, including downed trees, from last night’s winds. Should you decide to venture out, please proceed with caution as there are traffic signals around Town that are inoperable. Remember, if a traffic signal is inoperable, the intersection should be treated as a four-way stop. Be on the lookout for emergency personnel, including those from FPL, and give them room to work as they re-establish service to Jupiter.
The Jupiter Police Department is monitoring damage from Hurricane Nicole, continues to patrol and is available to answer emergency calls. Anyone needing to report an emergency should call 911.
Jupiter’s Town Hall and Community Center are closed today due to Hurricane Nicole and will be closed tomorrow in observance of Veterans Day. Additionally, all Town parks, including Jupiter Community Park, Cinquez Park and Abacoa Community Park, including athletic fields and facilities, are closed until further notice as Town staff assess conditions. Parks will be re-opened as soon as it is determined it is safe to do so.
WASTE COLLECTION: As a reminder, there will be no waste collection in Jupiter today. Waste Management will resume regular collection service on Friday.
LOSS OF ELECTRICITY: Should you experience a loss of electricity, please reach out directly to FPL at 1-800-4-OUTAGE (1-800-468-8243) or on the web at www.fpl.com/Storm. Please note, the Town cannot assist with a power outage and all reports should be made directly to FPL.
Never approach a downed power line. Report downed lines to FPL and avoid the line, which may still have electricity flowing through it.
SAFE GENERATOR USE: Remember, generators should never be operated inside a home, including in a garage. Generators should be operated 20 feet from the home, with the exhaust pointed away from the any doors or windows, including those of neighbors.
