Hurricane Matthew

We have secured the Museum and are ready for Hurricane Matthew. The Museum is closed today to allow staff to get their homes ready. Lakeland is expecting winds between 50 and 55 mph with the storm hitting starting early tomorrow. 

2016 Hurricane Predictions

2016 Atlantic hurricane predictions have recently been revised with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration now predicting 17 named storms, up from 12 storms predicted at the start of the season. Now is the time to prepare your home and gather your family supplies. 

Storm Updates

This page is only used in the event of a disaster such as a hurricane where communications can be difficult. Museum staff can use this to leave messages for their loved ones to let them know they are OK or what their current needs are. Hopefully we will never need it.
