Lake County Schools cancel classes for Monday

TAVARES — Lake County officials participating in an executive policy group meeting Sunday reached a consensus that all Lake County Schools will close Monday, Oct. 24.

“Lake County is currently under a tropical storm warning until 4 p.m. tomorrow,” said Jerry Smith, Director of the Lake County Emergency Management Division.

Meteorologists are forecasting Lake County will receive several hours of tropical-force winds (of 39 mph or higher) beginning at 7 a.m. Monday. Total rainfall expected in the County on Monday is approximately 2 inches.

As of 10 a.m. Sunday, the activation level of the Lake County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) was raised to Level II, partial activation. All 21 Emergency Support Functions (ESFs) of the Lake County EOC are on duty to prepare for Hurricane Wilma. An ESF is a mechanism that consolidates multiple agencies that perform similar or like functions into a single, cohesive unit to allow for the better management of emergency response functions.
