Drink up Belleview: City of Belleview residents are now free to use water as they please. The city rescinded its boil water notice as of 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. The notice went into effect Monday after a main potable water line broke in two places as Hurricane Irma made her way through Marion County.

Official stats on Hurricane Irma: Nate McGinnis, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Jacksonville, said Marion County got about 10 inches of rain, countywide, during Irma.

As for wind: The highest recorded gusts were 51 mph in Marion. However, based on the number of power outages, experts suspect some gusts exceeded 60 mph late Sunday and early Monday.

The weather service will review data and, at a later date, have a full accounting of Irma data.

College of Central Florida: The College of Central Florida will reopen all locations Friday and classes will resume Monday. The staggered restart will allow faculty and staff to check work areas and catch up on critical operations before students return to classes.

The Learning Lab School will reopen Friday. Special events at Marion, Citrus and Levy campuses and the Appleton Museum of Art will resume Monday. Call 873-5800 on Friday for additional information.

Blood donations: OneBlood has resumed blood donations in much of its service area and says there is an urgent need for platelet donations and O negative blood.

Hurricane Irma forced the blood center to suspend donations for several days and now there is a critical need to replenish the state’s blood supply. Donors should visit www.oneblood.org to find donor centers and mobile drives that are open.

LifeSouth Community Blood Centers said Type O donors and apheresis platelet donors are especially needed, but donors of all blood types can help.The agency ceased blood collections on Sunday and Monday. Not being able to collect blood daily can result in emergency level blood shortages, especially type O negative.

LifeSouth locations are open in Florida. For more information or to find a donor center, visit lifesouth.org.

Florida Department of Health in Marion County: Many residents are dealing with power or water issues after Hurricane Irma. The department issued these actions people can take to protect themselves from hurricane-related health hazards.

+ Clean out refrigerators or freezers that have been without power since the storm. Those perishables are unsafe for eating.

+ Throw away food that may have come into contact with dirty water from flooding.

+ If you are in an area that has experienced water issues and you use formula to feed your infant, use only ready-to-feed baby formula or prepare powdered or concentrated liquid formula with sterilized or bottled water. Use only sanitized bottles and nipples. Refrigerate unused prepared formula.

• If you lost water pressure during the storm, take precautions against contaminated water, especially if you have a private well. If you are not sure if your water is safe, drink commercially bottled water.

• If your well has flooded, boil water until you are able to test it for bacteria. Contact the Florida Department of Health in Marion County’s Environmental Health department at 622-7744 for a list of local water testing laboratories.

• When boiling water, heat it to a rolling boil for one minute to remove bacteria.

• Disinfect water by adding eight drops of plain, unscented bleach per gallon of water; mix and let stand for 30 minutes. Repeat if the water is cloudy after 30 minutes.

• Keep open cuts or sores from being exposed to floodwater, which may contain raw sewage. If wounds are exposed, wash with soap and clean water and apply antibiotic ointment. If redness, swelling or drainage occurs, see a doctor.

• Don’t let children play in floodwater or with toys that have been in floodwater. Disinfect or throw away exposed toys; to disinfect, mix ¼ cup of bleach with one gallon of clean water, then let it stand for at least 30 minutes and allow toys to air dry.

• Carbon monoxide is an invisible, odorless, tasteless gas and is highly poisonous. It can cause tiredness, weakness, chest pains, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, headache, confusion, impaired vision, loss of consciousness and death.

• Never use gas-powered generators or pressure washers indoors, not even in a garage. Do not burn charcoal or use gas grills inside a house, garage, vehicle, tent or fireplace.

• Open doors and windows, turn off gas appliances, go outside and call 911 or the poison control hotline at 1-800-222-1222 if you think you have carbon monoxide poisoning.

• Use battery-powered lanterns and flashlights. If you must use candles, put them in safe holders away from curtains, paper, wood or other flammable items.

• Be on the lookout for symptoms of heat exhaustion. Warning signs include heavy sweating, paleness, muscle cramps, tiredness, weakness, dizziness, headache, nausea or vomiting, or fainting.

• Stay hydrated and cool. Drink cold, non-alcoholic beverages, take cool showers or baths, wear lightweight clothing and rest in an air-conditioned environment.

• Be aware that heat exhaustion may lead to heat stroke. Severe symptoms include skin that is cool and moist, a pulse rate that is fast and weak and quick, and shallow breathing. Seek medical attention immediately if symptoms last longer than one hour or you have heart problems or high blood pressure.

City of Ocala:

• The city of Ocala Water Resources Department experienced a secondary treated water spill on Monday, which has been contained. A news release stated it was a public access reuse water spill, which was incorrect. The spill occurred at the Water Reclamation Facility #2, at 4200 SE 24th St. and involved approximately 2.67 million gallons of secondary treated water that was treated, but not to advanced wastewater treatment standards. The spill was caused by a tertiary filter level indicator failure. Filters are back on line and have resumed normal treatment. For more information, call 351-6772.

• City business offices have re-opened. The city has resumed household garbage and recycling collection. Residential collection regularly scheduled for Monday is expected to take place today, collection for Tuesday is expected to take place Thursday, collection for today is expected to take place Friday and collection for Thursday is expected to take place Saturday. Waste Pro recycling collection for city residents regularly scheduled for Monday through Thursday is expected to take place today through Saturday. The city is working with its FEMA-approved debris management contractor to begin scheduling storm debris pickup. Residents are asked to separate storm debris into three piles: vegetative debris, construction and demolition debris (carpet, furniture, roof shingles, etc.) and electrical appliances, and to keep streets clear and open to traffic. For more information, call 351-6697.

• Due to large amounts of rainfall and flooding in certain areas, the city strongly encourages residents to avoid wading, fishing, swimming or playing in any standing bodies of water and/or retention areas. These bodies of water have the potential of containing various pollutants and raw effluent, due to the nature of the sanitary sewer system, which is subject to infiltration by stormwater. For more information, call 351-6772.

Corrected phone number: Waste Pro recycling collection will experience a two-day delay; as will residential collection for sanitation, yard waste or recycling routes. Call 624-3100. A number previously listed online and in print was incorrect.
