As fellow residents, we are preparing for Hurricane Irma, as well as you are.  Here are some important tips we wanted to share with you all:

For Hurricane Updates, Emergency Public Shelters, Hurricane Shelters visit: or call 1-800-828-7655 or 863-420-2506.

Make sure you stay informed!!  

Register for Polk County's Public Safety notification system.  You will get immediate safety notices or threatening situations on your smart phone, home phone, tablet, email, text and social media.  (TMHB will also share any updates as well)  

Register for Alert Polk: go to or through the county website  If you have registered prior to 2017 you must re-register.  This applies to everyone, not just Cypress Lakes Residents.  

Quick reminders to bring in garbage cans, patio furniture, lawn decor and name signs to avoid them becoming flying objects.  


ALSO:  The Cypress Lakes C.E.R.T team is distributing window signs to display,

 one side "I'm OK!" the other side "Please Stop In."

If you do not have one and would like one please call Bill Dowd @ 910-228-1932
