After seemingly quiet most of the day, our Polk County Emergency Management people finally got off the pot early this afternoon. They had originally announced that 9 shelters plus a special needs shelter would open at noon, but pushed the time back until 2 PM. Now that have just announced a mandatory evacuation of mobile home parks and low lying areas. That's what you call GREAT TIMING, several hours after realizing that the centre would be coming dangerously near your area!
