Mon, 09/26/2022

Chatham Emergency Management Agency (CEMA) and The Landings Association remain in Opcon 4, the enhanced monitoring phase, as we track the movements of Hurricane Ian.

At its 11:30 a.m. briefing today (September 26), CEMA shared that Ian is now a Category 1 Hurricane with 80 MPH sustained winds moving northwest at 13 MPH. At the time of the briefing, the storm was approximately 777 miles from Chatham County and expected to intensify over the next few days. It is projected that Ian will be downgraded to a Tropical Depression by the weekend. 

Our area should expect heavy rains, with up to eight inches along the coast. There is the potential for localized flooding, power outages, and isolated tornados. TLA Public Works staff are checking lagoon water valves to release water if needed, as well as double-checking lighting in case limbs come down in the dark. The Marinas are working to secure operations as well.

Watch this video as General Manager Karl Stephens and Security Director Tim Cook discuss the importance of ensuring your hurricane plan is ready and all your family members know the details. 

We will continue to provide periodic updates on Hurricane Ian as more details become available.
