Brevard County Primary Election Results 2016



Here are the latest results from the Brevard County Supervisor of Elections for the 2016 primary elections.

Exotic Pet Amnesty Day At Brevard Zoo


MELBOURNE, Florida - The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and Brevard Zoo will hold an Exotic Pet Amnesty Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 3, 2016, in front of the Nyami Nyami River Lodge at Brevard Zoo located at 8225 North Wickham Road in Melbourne, Florida.

Exotic pets can be surrendered with no questions asked. Every pet that is surrendered is inspected by a veterinarian, and all healthy pets are placed with pre-qualified adopters that same day.


The Exotic Pet Amnesty Program is an effort to reduce the number of nonnative species being released into the wild by exotic pet owners who can no longer care for their pets or no longer wish to keep them. Amnesty Day events are held around the State of Florida to provide the opportunity for people to surrender their exotic pets free of charge and with no penalties.

When exotic pets are released into the wild, they often become an invasive species that can harm native species, and endanger people and pets. Florida’s subtropical climate is one reason the state has the world’s largest number of invasive species. The State of Florida spends over $80 million a year to help rid the Sunshine State of these invasive species.

Two Green Anacondas, considered to be the largest snake species in the world, were found in the wild in Brevard County in February 2016 and December 2015.

Another invasive species that is spreading from South Florida into Brevard County is the Nile monitor lizard which can grow to over 5 feet long and weigh close to 15 pounds. The monitors are known in their native Africa to prey or scavenge for a variety of small animals, including domestic cats.

National Hurricane Center: Tropical Cyclones Take Aim At Florida, North Carolina


MIAMI, Florida - NOAA's National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida issued Public Advisories at 11 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, August 30, 2016, due the presence of two tropical depressions that are expected to become tropical storms before making landfall on Florida and nearing North Carolina.

The double tropical cyclones threatening the U.S. while Hurricane Gaston looms in the central Atlantic come after NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center forecasted that the 2016 Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 through November 30, would be the most active hurricane season in four years.

Tropical Depression 8 Nears North Carolina


Tropical Depression Eight is located over the Atlantic Ocean about 70 miles south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, and is moving toward the north-northwest at 5 mph.




A turn toward the north is expected later today, and a turn toward the northeast is forecast on Wednesday.  On the forecast track, the center of the depression will be near the Outer Banks of North Carolina this afternoon or this evening.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 35 mph (55 km/h), with higher gusts. Slow strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Tropical Depression 8 could become a tropical storm later on Tuesday.

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for the coast of North Carolina from Cape Lookout to Oregon Inlet, and Pamlico Sound. A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area. In this case within 12 hours.

Interests elsewhere along the Outer Banks of North Carolina should monitor the progress of Tropical Depression 8.  Additional watches or warnings may be required later today.

Hurricane Watch Issued For Parts Of Florida


A Hurricane Watch has been issued for the Florida Gulf coast from the Anclote River to Indian Pass. A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for the Florida Gulf coast west of Indian Pass to the Walton/Bay County line.

A Hurricane Watch means that hurricane conditions are possible within the watch area. A watch is typically issued 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds, conditions that make outside preparations difficult or dangerous.

A Tropical Storm Watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area, generally within 48 hours.


Interests along the United States east coast from northern Florida through the Carolinas should monitor the progress of this system.

Former Invest 99L, now Tropical Depression Nine, is located about 345 miles west of Key West, Florida, and is moving northwest at 5 mph.

NHC forecasters believe that T.D. 9 will turn toward the north-northwest on Tuesday night. On the projected storm track, Tropical Depression 9 will then turn to the north-northeast on Wednesday.

Waterspouts Possible Off Of Central Florida Coast


BREVARD COUNTY, Florida - The formation of waterspouts along Florida's Space Coast are possible today and tonight, according to a Hazardous Weather Outlook issued by the National Weather Service office in Melbourne, Florida, on Tuesday, August 30, 2016.



The potential for waterspouts is due to deep tropical moisture that is causing widespread showers and isolated lightning storms over the Atlantic waters early this morning. Some of this rainfall will affect adjacent coastal sections until around midday.

In additional to waterspouts, the combination of ocean swell and local tides will result in a high risk for dangerous rip currents at the Central Florida Atlantic coast beaches. While the rip risk will be in place all day, the highest threat will occur from mid morning through late afternoon.

Late morning to early afternoon heating will lead to scattered to numerous showers and isolated lightning storms forming over land areas. The showers and storms will move to the north at 15 to 20 mph and produce torrential downpours, occasional lightning strikes and gusty winds to around 40 mph.

National Hurricane Center Issues Hurricane Watch For Parts Of Florida


MIAMI, Florida - NOAA's National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida issued a Public Advisory at 5 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, August 30, 2016, due the presence of Tropical Depression 9 that is expected to become a tropical storm or hurricane and make landfall on Florida.




A Hurricane Watch has been issued for the Florida Gulf coast from the Anclote River to Indian Pass. A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for the Florida Gulf coast west of Indian Pass to the Walton/Bay County line.

A Hurricane Watch means that hurricane conditions are possible within the watch area. A watch is typically issued 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds, conditions that make outside preparations difficult or dangerous.

A Tropical Storm Watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area, generally within 48 hours.


Interests along the United States east coast from northern Florida through the Carolinas should monitor the progress of this system.

Former Invest 99L, now Tropical Depression Nine, is located about 345 miles west of Key West, Florida, and is moving northwest at 5 mph.

NHC forecasters believe that T.D. 9 will turn toward the north-northwest on Tuesday night. On the projected storm track, Tropical Depression 9 will then turn to the north-northeast on Wednesday.

Recent observations from a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft and the unmanned NASA Global Hawk drone indicate that the maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h), with higher gusts. Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and the depression could become Tropical Storm Hermine by Tuesday night.

Tropical Depression 9 is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 5 to 10 inches over the Florida peninsula through Friday. Isolated maximum amounts of 15 inches are also possible in Florida.

Will Tropical Depression 9 Become A Possible Hurricane Hermine That Hits Florida?



Spaghetti models are in general agreement that Tropical Storm Hermine's projected path will make a northeastern hook in the Gulf of Mexico by Wednesday. 

Most intensity models keep Hermine at tropical storm strength through the rest of the week. However, a few intensity models predict that Hermine will become a Category 1 Hurricane by Thursday before making landfall on Florida.

The new NHC stormtrack forecast lies between the National Weather Service's Global Forecast System model (GFS), European Center for Medium range Weather Forecasting (ECMWF) forecast model, and the consensus model TVCN.

NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center forecasts that the 2016 Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 through November 30, will be the most active hurricane season in four years.

United Arab Emirates Man Sentenced For Possessing Ammunition In Florida

Hamid Mohamed Ahmed Ali Rehaif

ORLANDO, Florida – U.S. District Judge John Antoon, II has sentenced Hamid Mohamed 25-year-old Ahmed Ali Rehaif to 18 months in federal prison for possession of a firearm and ammunition by an unlawful alien. Following his prison term, he will be deported back to the United Arab Emirates. Rehaif was found guilty by a federal jury in May 2016.

According to evidence presented at trial, Rehaif was admitted into the United States in 2013 under a student visa in order to attend the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT). After completing three semesters at FIT, he was academically dismissed in December 2014. 


As a result, Rehaif became an unlawful alien when he failed to immediately depart the United States. 

Following an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, law enforcement agents made contact with Rehaif at a hotel in Melbourne where federal officials say he had been living for two months, paying more than $11,000 in cash for room fees. 

During that time, Rehaif possessed firearms and ammunition at a local shooting range in Melbourne, Florida. In addition, he provided ammunition to two hotel employees as “gifts.” At the sentencing hearing, the Court found that Rehaif had illegally purchased three other firearms.  

Rehaif had faced a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison.
