Public Safety

This morning, about 75,000 residents in Palm Beach and Broward Counties were without power after Tropical Storm Isaac swept through our area knocking down some trees and power lines and dropping nearly ten inches of rain.
I have been in contact with Emergency Management officials in Broward and Palm Beach, and fortunately, they tell me that damage is minimal and flooding is limited to low-lying areas.

As your State Senator and Vice Chair of the Senate Domestic Security Committee, your safety is always my first priority.  Please remember that our area is still under a flood watch and wind advisory through this evening and we should continue to take proper precautions.

While I understand crews are working to restore power and clear debris, many of you may still need assistance.  Please know that I stand ready to help in any way I can.  Please do not hesitate to call my office.
