Watching the Tropics as Plans Continue for Citrus Expo

Randall Weiseman Citrus, Citrus Expo News, Florida, Weather

It’s late Sunday morning and while forecasters are still not sure on the development of Tropical Storm Fay after it passes over Cuba, as of now, Citrus Expo plans remain a go. While it will most likely be sometime Monday before a final decision can be made with regard to the status of Citrus Expo, the center of the projected course, or “the cone” for this storm continues to be the the southwest coast of Florida. But Citrus EXPO plans continue to move forward at this time, although very bad weather particularly for setup day Tuesday appears likely. However, the status of the Lee County Civic Center (LCCC) as an official shelter facility largely takes the decision out of our hands and places it with emergency management people in Lee County. If the show is confirmed to go on, we will likely work with LCCC officials to allow for later access to the building Tuesday evening as necessary. We are closely monitoring their plans accordingly through LCCC management. Please stay tuned to both websites and on a regular basis for the most up to date information.
