Partner News 9/22
Dear Pensacola Beach Chamber Members,
On Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2020, Hurricane Sally made landfall near Gulf Shores, Ala. at 4:45 a.m. as a Category 2 storm with sustained winds of 105 mph and gusts of 120+ mph. Our beach and surrounding areas have suffered immense damage. As we proceed forward with clean up and repairs, we want to let our Chamber members and community know we are here as a resource and to provide support if/when needed.
Please check in with us to let us know how you and your business are doing and what we can possibly do to help you. If you have any resources we can share with others, please let us know that as well.
We have put together some available resources below and I am personally answering all phone calls/emails to answer whatever questions I can.

Gulf Power Updates
Huge thank you to Gulf Power and all of their partners from around the country that have been working tirelessly to get the power back on to all in our community. Visit their storm website here for current information on outages and restoration information.
Please do not call 9-1-1 to report power outages. Gulf Power knows when your power is out. You can track outages on their outage map from your smartphone on the Gulf Power Outage Map or report power outages online here.
Never touch a fallen power line and assume all wires on the ground are electrically charged.
Emerald Coast Utilities Authority
Effective immediately, the Emerald Coast Utilities Authority is issuing a system-wide Precautionary Boil Water Notice (PBWN) to its water system customers. This notice is in response to the significant and wide-spread damages sustained from Hurricane Sally. ECUA crews are already out in the field working to locate, isolate, and repair main breaks in order to restore service as quickly as possible. Although the majority of our customers remain in service, there are too many main breaks that require a PBWN for it to be practical to issue separate notices during this initial emergency response. Once the number of pending repairs is significantly reduced, the ECUA will revert to issuing separate notices for individual areas. We ask for our customers’ patience and understanding as we work to repair hundreds of breaks, giving priority to our hospitals, dialysis centers, and other critical care facilities.
