OPERATIONS SUMMARY:
The State Emergency Operations Center is at a Level 2 activation status. The State Watch Office will continue to monitor all
severe weather and flood status for the State of Florida.

METEOROLOGY:
  Lightning:                               Low Threat
  Flooding:                                High Threat
  Damaging Wind:                           Low Threat

  Hail:
  Wildfire-KDBI:                           Moderate Threat
  Freeze:
  Rip Currents:                            Moderate Threat
  Space:
  Lake Okeechobee Status:
State: A strong cold front over the Florida Big Bend this morning will continue to push east today with limited shower activity
associated with it. Only scattered showers and perhaps an isolated thunderstorm will be possible across portions of the
Florida Peninsula. The threat for severe weather will be low, with the main hazards being brief wind gusts and lightning.
Maximum rainfall amounts are forecast to be around one quarter of an inch.
Behind the front, winds will increase to around 15-25 mph today over North Florida. Wind Advisories are in effect through
this evening from the Florida Panhandle to North Central Florida. Temperatures in the 70s during the morning will fall into
the 60s by the afternoon and into the 30s overnight across northern sections of the state. Freeze Watches are in effect for
the interior western Florida Panhandle. Red Flag Warnings are in effect through this evening for portions of Northwest
Florida due to low humidity levels and high winds.
Runoff from recent heavy rainfall over northern Florida and southern Georgia has resulted in widespread river flooding
across much of North Florida. River Flood Warnings remain in effect for several North Florida river basins, and many of the
rivers are forecast to remain above flood stage through the next several days.

There will be a high threat of rip currents this morning along the eastern Florida Panhandle beaches. The threat will
decrease to a moderate level by the afternoon. A moderate threat for rip currents will also exist along the Southwest Florida
coast.
The average statewide Keetch-Byram Drought Index (KBDI) is currently 400 on a scale of 0 (saturated) to 800 (severe
drought).

Current Lake Okeechobee level: 12.15 feet.

SIGNIFICANT EVENTS:
Lake County Fair from 02 April to 11 April in Eustis.

OPEN SOURCE/UNCLASSIFIED INTEL:
April 5, TampaBay.com -- (Florida) Florida legislators consider gradual property insurance hikes as Citizens cap
nears end. With the 2009 hurricane season fast approaching and the legislative session more than halfway over,
lawmakers consumed in recent weeks by Florida's budget woes are turning their attention to the state's troubled property
insurance market. For residential property owners, that could mean paying premiums of between 10 and 20 percent more
each year — but only if legislators can come to an agreement before the session ends in May. A Senate proposal this week
stalled in its first committee amid concerns about raising homeowners' insurance costs during economic hard times.

March 26, NextGov -- (National) White House to coordinate cybersecurity efforts. The White House will coordinate the
national cybersecurity strategy but without creating a separate office, said members of a House caucus that was briefed on
the progress of the Obama administration's 60-day cyber review.

April 2, Reuters – (Florida) FPL shuts Fla. St Lucie 2 reactor due to seaweed. FPL Group Inc. shut the 839-megawatt
Unit 2 at the Saint Lucie nuclear power station in Florida from 92 percent power on April 1, the company told the U.S.
Nuclear Regulatory Commission said in a report. Operators shut the unit due to lowering condenser vacuum caused by
algae and seaweed clogging the cooling water intake. Before shutting the unit, operators reduced it from full power to about
94 percent to secure one of the circulation water pumps.

April 1, National Association of Chemical Distributors – (National) NACD opposes railroad limits on common carrier
obligation. The National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) on April 1 filed comments with the Surface
Transportation Board (STB) in response to a petition from the Union Pacific Railroad Company (UP) to determine the extent
of common carrier obligation to transport chlorine over long distances. In this particular case, UP questions whether it should
be forced to quote rates to a shipper to transport chlorine from Utah to the Gulf Coast, when this would require
transportation over a long distance through High Threat Urban Areas when ample chlorine supplies are available closer to
the Gulf Coast region. NACD’s comments oppose UP’s request and argue that if the railroad is granted this exception, the
entire common carrier obligation to transport toxic inhalation hazards (TIH) will be threatened.
