In case you were wondering....The Collier County Solid Waste Department is telling us that the strong sulfur smell traveling throughout the county is originating from the county landfill off Collier Boulevard north of I-75. The increase in municipal solid waste resulting from Hurricane Irma and the recent rains have caused some odor in the landfill. Waste Management International has been covering the active landfill area with a mixture of dirt, mulch and shell in an effort to mitigate the odor, however, the current wind flow is transporting the odor to the southeastern Golden Gate Estates area and other areas of the county. WMI will add additional dirt mulch mix tomorrow to ensure the odor is contained. ...

Update from Collier CountyFEMA opened a Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) in Collier County today to help local hurricane survivors. The DRC will be open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week until further notice.

Disaster Recovery Centers offer in-person support in most languages to individuals and small business owners. Recovery specialists from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), and the state of Florida are available to provide assistance to anyone needing help with completing the applications or updating their status. Voluntary organizations are available and offer a variety of services to help survivors recover.

The DRC is located at:

Golden Gate Community Center (Collier County)
4701 Golden Gate Parkway
Naples, FL 34116

The registration process is the first step in your recovery and requires information such as insurance policies, and bank information for possible direct transfer of funds. You are encouraged to register online at DisasterAssistance.gov, through the FEMA Mobile App, or via phone through the Helpline below before visiting a DRC.

Call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 for voice, 711 and Video Relay Service (VRS). If you are deaf, hard of hearing, or have a speech disability and use a TTY, call 800-462-7585. Helpline numbers are open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week. Information on the registration process is available in ASL HERE.

Disaster Survivor Assistance (DSA) crews are canvassing affected areas and are able to register survivors for FEMA assistance, if needed. Telephonic Interpretation Services are available in many languages to assist survivors with language needs. When residents require further assistance, the teams may refer them to a DRC.

If you’re already registered, it is not necessary to visit a DRC, but you may still want to go speak with a Recovery Specialist to update your status or find help from the other organizations. Some tips to remember:
FEMA grants do not have to be repaid.
FEMA assistance is nontaxable and will not affect eligibility for Social Security, Medicaid or other federal benefits.
Survivors should register even if they have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but underinsured applicants may receive help after their claims have been settled

m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1547450011981442&id=141536609239463Here is critical information from our partners at Collier County Government. Please take precautions and drive safely.

Important Warning
Heavy Rainfall Expected
Debris Blocking Roadway Swales Will Cause Countywide Flooding

A tropical storm system developing in the western Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico is expected to bring heavy rainfall to SW Florida during the next several days.

Because large amounts of hurricane-related vegetative debris have been piled in the roadside swale system blocking drainage inlets and outfalls, it is expected that all areas of Collier County will experience flooding, especially on roadways.

Collier County Road Maintenance crews are working to clear swales and drainage inlets to mitigate the flooding, but because of the large amount of debris, flooding will occur. Crews will not be able to make a significant difference in the outcome.

Residents are urged to safely and immediately clear blocked storm sewer inlet drains, grates and swales of all obstructions including leaves, branches and debris.

Residents are reminded to be cautious of where they place debris piles. Do not block roads, swales, storm water grates, driveways, sidewalks, mailboxes, water meters, fire hydrants and utility poles. Never place debris in canals or other waterways. Debris removal trucks will make several passes through neighborhoods so it is not necessary to place all debris at the edge of the property/roadway now.

Additionally, it is important that residents closely monitor local news, heed warnings from the National Weather Service and local officials, and remember “If You Can’t See the Ground, Turn Around” when approaching a flooded roadway.

Important reminders during flooding:

• Never walk or drive in the flood waters. Many people are killed by driving or walking on roads and bridges that are covered by water. Even though the water might look only inches deep, it could be much deeper and have strong currents. It only takes two feet of water to carry away a car, and six inches of swiftly moving water will sweep a person off their feet.

• Find an alternate route around the flooded area. If you are approaching a flooded roadway, turn around and take an alternate route, even though vehicles in front of you may have passed through the high water.

• Don't assume your vehicle is safe. High water in streets and intersections will quickly stall motor vehicles. Most trucks, four-wheel drives and sport utility vehicles also are susceptible to being swept away by high water.

• Never stay with your car in a flooded area. If your car stalls, abandon it immediately and climb to higher ground. Many deaths have resulted from attempts to move stalled vehicles.

• Never let children play near canals or storm drains when the water is rising or high. Swimming skills have nothing to do with surviving a flooded creek or stream. Flood time is not a time for play. Keep children out of flooded areas.

To report serious road flooding issues, please contact the Collier County Road Maintenance Division at (239) 252-8924.
