Severe Weather Alert: Hurricane Florence

9/16/2018 -- 2:35PM

Since our last report, Hurricane Florence has weakened and is now a tropical depression. At this time, our communities in the Carolinas (Park Pointe Village, Plantation Estates and Tryon Estates) have experienced no significant issues from the storm. There has been no interruption in electrical power, telephone service is operating, and there has been no water drainage issues or property damage. Despite the storm’s downgrade, periods of heavy rain and wind gusts are anticipated in parts of North and South Carolina through Monday. As such, our communities in the Carolinas remain vigilant in their storm preparedness operations and additional staff remain in place to ensure the safety and welfare of our residents.

The Acts organization thanks all who have prayed for the safety of our residents and staff, and our many vendors who have worked with us to ensure all essential services would continue to be provided within our communities through the storm’s duration. We ask that you to continue to pray for others being severely impacted by the storm.

At this time, our communities in the Carolinas (Park Pointe Village, Plantations Estates and Tryon Estates) and Georgia (Lanier Village Estates) have reported no issues from the storm and no interruption in utility services or property damage sustained. Despite the storm’s weakening, it’s anticipated the entire Carolina region will experience heavy rainfall and wind gusts throughout the weekend.
