Are there any bridge closures?

As weather conditions deteriorate, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office will coordinate with municipalities to close bridges to eastbound traffic. Westbound traffic will not be affected. The bridges will reopen when the Florida Department of Transportation inspects them and determines that they are structurally safe. Please stay tuned to the City’s website and visit for updates

Is there an evacuation order?

An evacuation order will most likely be issued on Sunday, depending on the storm’s track and intensity. The order will be for residents who live on the beachside and in low-lying areas, recreational vehicles and mobile homes throughout Volusia County.
