Hurricane Preparedness

Eva Rey,

President of Central Viera Community Association

Here we go again! Hurricane Season 2024 is almost upon us. And, it is my duty to remind everyone to prepare BEFORE any storms are headed our way. I am always amazed when so many people are rushing around at the last minute getting their supplies when a storm is already on its way. There are so many resources available to you that help you develop your plan and create your checklists. Here is one such resource that is really helpful, especially to those new to Florida:

In the spirit of disaster preparedness and planning, why not save a little money in the process? Each year, Florida offers tax exempt holidays for preparedness supplies.


My name is Jaime Rhude, a proud retired Air Force military spouse, mom of two boys, and a CODA—Child of a Deaf Adult—which makes me fluent in American Sign Language. I am a dedicated mortgage broker at Future Home Loans, a prominent brokerage firm serving Florida's Space Coast. Our business is veteran-owned, which provides a unique insight into the needs of military families in the mortgage industry. We offer an array of home loan programs including VA, FHA, Conventional, USDA which are designed to accommodate the diverse financial situations of our clients, including first-time homebuyers and real estate investors.

At Future Home Loans, we are well-versed in the specific challenges and benefits associated with all homebuyers. I specialize in VA loans and I am committed to providing outstanding customer service, delivering a seamless and supportive lending experience, ensuring our clients receive the best terms and conditions possible.

Situated in a region with a significant military presence, I uphold values of integrity, transparency, and personalized service. I take great pride in helping numerous families within the Space Coast area achieve their dreams of homeownership, thereby making a positive contribution to the community we serve and live in. 

Dogtopia is the leading destination for dog daycare, boarding and spa services. Our mission is to make sure your four-legged family members are kept safe and have a fun time when they are at our modern, open-play facility. We understand that your dog is a member of the family. You want to provide your dog with safe socialization so that they meet and play with like-minded friends, exercise to keep them healthy and extend their lives and education to help ensure they are well-behaved both at home and when you take them out in public.

Dogtopia’s daycare is designed with these needs in mind. Your dog’s safety is our top priority; that’s why our team’s training is certified by two nationally recognized associations in canine behavior. Our play rooms are supervised by these certified Canine Coaches, and your dog will be in a playroom where he or she is surrounded by dogs of similar size, temperament and play style as well as those who are fully vaccinated and have passed our Dogtopia evaluation. Your dog will be in very capable hands during their time with us!
