Subject: Fwd: Hurricane Matthew
HI. I have spoken to Joe and Lisa, who have returned to Lakeside and walked the parking lots. In short, no serious damage, although some shrubs and a small palm are down. No broken glass seen, electricity is back, roads and bridges are are open. They did not walk behind the buildings, but we’ll get a report later. In short, things look pretty good, although a clean-up of the grounds and pool are required.

10/7/16 MATTHEW UPDATE (MARTIN COUNTY)
From Stuart City Manager, Paul Nicoletti
1. Overall, the City of Stuart and Martin County fared very well as Hurricane Matthew (as a CAT 3 storm) brushed by us a little bit farther out to sea than anticipated. The eye wall was re-generating (weakened) at the time about 10-15 miles off the coast.
2. During the height of the storm we received 15 Police calls for service, the majority were alarms going off. We had one medical call at about 2 AM that needed no immediate response; and NO fires. Stuart Police Department officers are just getting back on the road (3:15 AM) for patrol purposes, and they will report any impassible roads. At this point we are not aware of any flooded streets in Stuart. The total rain in the City at this point is about 1 inch.
3. As of 3:00 AM there were about 31,000 FPL customers in Martin County (10,000 of which are in Stuart) without power.
4. In Stuart, the wind at 3 AM was gusting around 60 mph and 53 mph at 4 AM.
City police and fire-rescue personnel will be conducting damage surveys, so unreported obstructions and hazards may still be present.
