Tropical Storm Isaias Update
8/2/20 - 9:20 a.m.
Hurricane Isaias has been downgraded to a strong tropical storm and we are now under a tropical storm warning. Please note these conditions may change so it is important to remain prepared and cautious.
Isaias is slowly moving towards Florida and is expected to skirt the state sometime mid-morning. Due to the full moon and high tide at 8:45 a.m., we can expect a storm surge of 2-4 feet north of the Jupiter Inlet. Please continue to monitor its movements by watching your local TV news station and the Village’s website.

Please Do Not Trim Trees
As the hurricane approaches, please do not trim trees and brush at this time.
Tequesta is currently in the cone of Hurricane Isaias and the storm’s exact path is still uncertain. At this time, both Palm Beach County and Governor DeSantis have declared a state of emergency.
Your Village Public Works team asks that residents refrain from cutting down trees or doing major yard or construction projects until we are out of the cone. Waste placed curbside prior to a possible landfall may put a strain on collection and disposal efforts after the storm, and large piles of vegetation and construction debris will be left at the curb potentially causing projectiles should the storm make landfall in our area.
The Village’s emergency management team continues to monitor the storm’s potential path and will keep you updated.
7/31/20 - 8:00 a.m.
The Village of Tequesta is closely monitoring Hurricane Isaias and taking all necessary actions to be prepared. We urge our residents to do the same and make your preparations early.
Visit the Village's Hurricane Page for comprehensive information on how to prepare: http://www.tequesta.org/409/Hurricane-Information
We will continue to keep you informed as the storm progresses. Rest assured that the Village is well experienced and well prepared.
