Dear Citizen Residents,

The National Weather Service has issued a hurricane warning for our area. According to the National Weather Service, Hurricane Florence is expected to make landfall around 8:00am Friday, September 14, 2018.

At this time, the on-site teams are focused on emergency preparedness for the building(s) and common areas. We ask that you please begin making plans for your personal safety. If the National Weather Service issues a full Hurricane Warning for this area, we will close our offices, within 4 hours, so our associates can prepare accordingly. Once our office is closed, please contact local authorities and emergency management services if you are in need of assistance. Waterton associates will return to provide customer service once it is safe to do so.

Once the storm has passed, and it is safe for management to do so, a member(s) of The Citizen team will enter your apartment to assess the condition and/or any damage. This inspection is for insurance purposes only and you are not required to be home, although you are welcome to be present. Community inspections will typically begin within
24-hours of the storm's passing.

PLEASE REMOVE ALL ITEMS FROM YOUR PATIO OR BALCONY! During a storm, unsecured items can become dangerous projectiles.

We urge you to take this storm threat seriously and to take responsibility for your personal safety by staying informed. Please contact the local authorities if you need assistance. For your convenience below is a list of contacts and/ or links for important information:

State of Virginia: Emergency Management (804) 897-5600
www.virginia.gov/agencies/department-of-emergency-management/

Hurricane Information
http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/

Federal Emergency Management Agency (800-621-3362)
http://www.fema.gov

We encourage all residents to take responsibility for themselves and their personal property just as we have advised our associates. In the event of an emergency, please call local law enforcement or fire officials.

As a reminder, PLEASE:
• Clear off balconies, terraces, and patios.
• Place rolled towels around the bottom of glass doors and windows.
• Close all blinds to avoid shattering glass. Do not tape any windows.
• For your safety: Personal generators are not permitted in your apartment or on the premises. Do not run a generator to avoid personal injury to you and your neighbors.
• Fill the bathroom tub with water. This water may be used for drinking should the water supply become interrupted or contaminated. It may be poured into the toilet bowl to induce flushing.
• Fill all vehicles with gas. In the event of loss of electricity, the gas pumps will not operate.
• Secure or carry all important paperwork and personal identification with you.
• Landlord is not allowed to insure your personal property and pursuant to your lease agreement, all residents are required to carry renter's insurance. To assist your carrier in the event of a loss, make a complete inventory of personal property. An inventory checklist can be obtained from your insurance representative. Store this and other important documents in waterproof containers or in a waterproof safety deposit box.

During the hurricane:
• Continue to listen to the County Warning System on the radio. Do exactly as advised by the announcer.
• Stay indoors. If the calm eye of the hurricane passes through the area, continue to stay indoors unless it is absolutely necessary to leave.
• If power is lost:
o Use flashlights instead of candles or kerosene lamps.
o Use caution when cooking when flames are present. A gust of wind through a door or window could start an accidental fire and the fire department may not be readily available while hurricane winds are blowing.
• Use the telephone for emergencies only. Jammed phone lines may obstruct emergency calls for police, fire departments, doctors, and the Red Cross disaster units.
• Conserve refrigeration. Open the refrigerator/freezer door as little as possible. Food will spoil in the refrigerator if the power is lost for more than a few hours. Freezers will keep food several days if doors are not opened after power failure, but do not refreeze food once it begins to thaw.
• Remain indoors until the official "all clear" is given from the County Warning System on the radio.

After the hurricane:
• Beware of outdoor hazards. Watch for loose or dangling power lines, and report them immediately to the proper authority.
• Walk or drive cautiously. Debris filled streets are very dangerous. Snakes and poisonous insects will be a hazard Washouts may weaken road and bridge structures and might collapse under vehicle weight.
• Do not use water until authorities have issued a safe water area. Use the emergency supply in the tub or boil water. Report broken sewer or water mains to the proper authority.
• Take extra precautions to prevent fire. Lowered water pressure in city mains and the interruption of other services may make firefighting extremely difficult after a hurricane.
• Notify your insurance carrier in the event of losses and where you may be reached.
• Unlatch the interior privacy lock located above the dead bolt on your front door. This will ensure entry to your apartment when the automatic garage doors are not functioning.

The Tribute will continue to post updates and information via email using our messaging portal and on the property Facebook page. If you have any immediate questions please contact us by phone at 703-379-4141 or email shirlingtonvillage@waterton.com.

Thank you for your cooperation and please be safe.

Nothing brings two airy chocolate cookies together like a dollop of strawberry frosting. 😋

At least, that's the case in this recipe! Once assembled, roll the edges in festive sprinkles to make a sweet color statement: http://bit.ly/2JXdQTv

Since leather couches often come in darker shades, the key to decorating with them is adding brightness through pillows and greenery! https://goo.gl/gIuaoL
