Our thanks to Key Lime Sailing Club for this resident information.
This is a message from a friend who is a dispatcher for Monroe County.
Ok Keys Friends, here’s the latest.
The Sheriffs Office has a checkpoint at the top of the stretch.
If you have been a confirmed supplier through the EOC you will get through.
If you are a resident and have a reentry sticker on your car, you will be sent to a staging area for your zone. If you do not have a sticker, you will be sent to another area to have your license or other documentation checked to confirm residency.
If you choose to do this, you are on your own for food, water, and shelter. It will not be provided.
At this point if you have a pink zone 1 sticker, don’t bother.
We have absolutely no idea how long it will take before residents can return. Could be several days. It is possible that Key Largo residents will be able to return soon, but keep in mind you will likely have no power or water.
We do have units patrolling for looters.
Be patient and wait where you are safe until we can get the all clear to let residents in.
Aqueduct is going to turn on the water from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. today, In Key West & Stock Island.
This is NON POTABLE water, must be boiled before drinking, and will only be available for a 2-HOUR period of time.
Major leaks from Marathon south, quickly deplete resources making it impossible to sustain continuous water at this time.
Preliminary reports show no cell service below Islamorada at this time.
Please help to share this message if you have access to it.
