We are 20+ miles inland at Pierson and 70ft above sea level.

I know treasure coast is closer to the coast but don't know the details.

Treasure Coast Soaring Club's hangar at X52 is 25'msl and about 12 miles inland. Wind beating on the old hangar is more of a concern than flooding.

We did very well, no problems and all gliders are safe and sound. All planes at FD25 are in great condition and no hangar damage. We worked hard to secure all aircraft and and brace the hangar doors from the wind damage. X52 will be closed all week because of water damage to the area. Bob

Well how about the rest of the glider operations down in Florida? Any damage? Please tell us how well your preparations held up.

Both commercial operations in central Florida are fine. All of our fleet with Citrus Soaring is okay. Our airport will be closed this week to allow the runway to dry. Should resume operations next week.

Seminole Lake's fleet is also okay.

Sounds like all clubs in Florida are also okay. I spoke with zephyrhills and they are okay. Jacksonville and treasure coast posted on fb that all is okay.

I talked to the Tampa bay soaring club in zephyrhills and they are okay.

Eagle sport aviation club shares our home in Pierson and their aircraft are okay.
