Post Hurricane Gustav

Hurricane Gustav passed to the west of us and Gulf Shores and Orange Beach have suffered no reported damage from the storm.

Other than putting a damper on the holiday weekend, we are happy to report that Gulf Shores and Orange Beach were spared damage from Hurricane Gustav. We had some rain squalls on and off Labor Day, but that was about the worst of it.

Businesses and beaches are open as usual.

We do ask visitors and residents to pay attention to the beach warning flags posted on all public beaches. The flags are there to alert beachgoers to surf conditions. Storms in the Gulf are likely to cause dangerous rip currents and swimming conditions along our beaches.
