Despite the heavy rains and winds associated with Hurricane Ian, we are pleased that Siena Lakes has sustained only minimal concerns.
The campus, along with nearly 80 percent of customers in Collier County, is without power. Fortunately, our backup generator systems continue to work properly and provide ample power and cooling. Community leadership and corporate partners have been in consistent contact with Florida Power and Light (FPL) to monitor the issue and estimate restoration times.
Residents are enjoying coffee/snacks in the morning, sandwiches for lunch and a hot buffet line for dinner. We are pleased to report that there are no staffing issues, and the community has necessary resources like food, water, and other supplies. All community services are operational and available. Community leadership continues to work closely with corporate partners, as well as track information from local authorities regarding the area-wide response.
Most important is the well-being of those who live and work at Siena Lakes. We are conducting regular check-ins with community residents, and we appreciate their understanding and good nature as we navigate the challenges of a category 4 hurricane.
We also continue to focus on the well-being of our employees, to whom we are very grateful. We are cognizant that many staff members are balancing professional and personal responsibilities as a result of the hurricane, and we are there to provide needed support.
Rest assured that we will keep residents and employees fully informed of our ongoing response.
