Hurricane Ida Closings and Twitters in Pensacola

By the numbers:
  1. All local Gulf Power linemen and other emergency repair workers were alerted Sunday afternoon they will be called in for extra duty Monday afternoon.
  2. Local news sources are reporting Escambia county public schools, pre-schools, and county offices will be closed all day Monday and Tuesday.
  3. Most private schools are closing as well.
  4. Santa Rosa schools, as of Sunday evening, plan to remain open Monday. Stay tuned about Tuesday.
  5. The county is twittering that "Residents of low-lying areas, Pensacola Beach, Perdido Key and mobile home residents are urged to evacuate." Local TV scrolls claim evacuation should begin at 7 am Monday.
  6. The main web site for Escambia County's Emergency Management, as of 9 pm Sunday evening, remains unchanged. Lame. Very lame. They may wake up by 9 am Monday.
