Tropical Storm Isaias Weakens as it Approaches Florida Peninsula

August 2, 2020 – Santa Fe College administration and the SF Emergency Management team met throughout the weekend tracking Tropical Storm Isaias to see what impacts it may have on the Santa Fe College service district of Alachua and Bradford counties. At the 8 a.m. Sunday advisory, the National Hurricane Center is reporting that Isaias is located off the coast of south Florida and has sustained winds of 65 mph and is moving northwest at 8 mph.

At the current track, there is expected to be minimal disruption to the area, with the possible exception of storm surge along the St. Johns River. With limited onsite operations for students, faculty and staff, the college has no plans to alter Monday’s schedule. Anyone who travels to the college from a potentially vulnerable area and is concerned for their safety should contact their supervisor or instructor.

Although the current track of the storm may limit its effect on the Santa Fe College service district, college officials stress that we should always remain vigilant, prepare necessary supplies and listen to the recommendations from the National Weather Service.

SF employees can go to eStaff, while students can utilize eSantaFe to verify that their emergency contact information is up to date.

SF student, faculty and staff can also review the resources available for storm preparation on the SF Weather Alerts page.
