7/7 Tropical Storm Elsa- City Manager Update

Posted on July 7, 2021

Friends, Residents, and Tourists,

At this writing, Elsa still has not made landfall north of us, but she continues to raise havoc. It seems the timing of the bands of wind gusts and high tides were to our advantage, and we had minimal flooding potential. Our damage assessment teams will be out early this morning. Please remember they will have identification with them. If you do have any damage, please e-mail me at the address below. So far it looks like the streets are clear with no down power lines or trees.

We are lucky! Now we will get the streets clean, check our stormwater inlets, and get back to work.

Thank you to our first-class fire department and the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office deputies, both working through the night to keep us all safe.


  • After the storm, if you shelter in place, make sure it is safe to exit your home and again take photographs of the interior of your home and the exterior. Photograph any evidence of the flood water height inside and outside your home, preferably water marks by your front and back doors.
  • We will have City damage assessment teams out on Wednesday as soon as conditions are safe. They will have City identification and we ask that you cooperate with their documentation requirements before you start stripping items out of your home. Representatives from our building department will also be available to answer questions.
  • City Hall phones are currently operating if there are any questions or ways we can help, 727-391-9951. City Hall will be open to the public starting at noon today with regular operating hours tomorrow, July 8, 2021.

Sanitation services will be suspended on Wednesday, July 7, 2021 and should resume Thursday, July 8, 2021.

Should you have any questions, please e-mail me at rdaniels@madeirabeachfl.gov.

Thank you for being great neighbors!

Bob Daniels

City Manager, City of Madeira Beach
