The City of Fort Pierce is continuing to monitor Tropical Storm Eta and preparing for any potential impact. Although there is still uncertainty in the future track and intensity, residents can expect significant rainfall, windy conditions, and very rough surf and should take necessary precautions.

 

The risk of flooding rain will be highest along the Treasure Coast through Monday night.  Storm total accumulations may reach 4 to 6 inches.  Areas prone to flooding will have a heightened risk with the heavy rainfall expected.  Windy conditions are expected to begin Saturday.  Very windy conditions are expected Sunday through Monday as Eta approaches parts of Florida. Onshore moving showers with gusts to tropical storm force (50‐60 mph) are likely Sunday into Monday. Marine conditions will continue to deteriorate this weekend with hazardous winds and seas for small craft and high surf developing along the Atlantic coast. Moderate beach erosion and minor coastal flooding may also develop by Sunday night and Monday.

Residents should stay alert to forecast changes by reliable sources. Emergency Response Teams from Public Works are currently ensuring that the stormwater systems are free of obstructions and operating at full capacity.

As of 2pm, here are the latest updates:


Sand Distribution
The City of Fort Pierce is offering free self-serve sandbag stations for residents at  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dreamland and Jaycee Parks. Residents should bring their own bags and shovel. Parks are open daily from dawn to dusk.

 

Solid Waste Collection
We are asking residents to please refrain from cutting down vegetation or doing major projects until the system passes. Residents should not place any additional debris at the curb as it may block surface stormwater flow.

 

Communication
We are committed to keeping our residents safe and informed - all public notices will be provided on the city’s website at www.cityoffortpierce.com, social media channels, and Fort Pierce TV Channel 27. Residents are also encouraged to sign up for St. Lucie County's Alert St. Lucie program to get emergency notifications sent directly to their phone, email, or text: www.stlucieco.gov/Alert
