City staff are continuing to monitor the track of Hurricane Ian.
Residents are encouraged to make sure they are prepared should Hurricane Ian affect our area.
When the sustained wind speed reaches 39 mph, all bridges crossing the Halifax River will be closed. They will reopen after the Florida Department of Transportation inspects them and determines they are structurally safe. The City of Daytona Beach does not issue passes for re-entry to the beachside. Typically what happens is people show their driver’s license or other form of photo ID that shows they live in the area they are trying to access. People needing to go to their place of employment, will need to show ID and/or something from their workplace, which verifies their place of employment.
Residents with questions about Hurricane Ian can call the city’s Citizen Hotline daily until further notice. The number to call is (386) 671-5555.
Daytona Beach City Hall, community centers and facilities will be closing at 2 p.m. today due to Hurricane Ian. City facilities will reopen Monday, Oct. 3. City emergency and public safety staff will continue to monitor the track of the storm and provide essential services. The city’s emergency operations center has been activated. People are encouraged to sign up for city emergency notifications.
Volusia County is posting updates on closures in the county, a curfew, shelters and more online at www.Volusia.org/PIIN.
The Daytona Beach Pier is closed until further notice.
Sandbag supplies are available until 5 p.m. Wednesday (weather dependent) in the parking lot near the southeast corner of Orange Avenue and Jean Street for Daytona Beach residents and business owners. Residents are asked to bring their own shovel. There is no charge for sandbags and there is a 10-bag limit per vehicle.
It is important to limit nonessential use of water during #HurricaneIan to help prevent backups and overflows. Nonessential use includes washing clothes and dishes and prolonged showers. The city’s water treatment plants will be fully staffed throughout the storm; however, heavy rainfall can inundate the system, and in the event of power outages, lift stations will also be without power or running at a limited capacity. Lift stations help move wastewater through the sewer system to water treatment facilities. Once power is restored to your home, please continue to limit water use for a few extra days as city crews begin to assess impacts to the water and wastewater system.
Yard debris will be picked up Wednesday, as usual; however, residential and commercial garbage collections have been suspended for Thursday and Friday. There should be no debris left outside by 6 p.m. Wednesday. Residents are encouraged to bring their garbage cans and recycling bins inside their garage or secured for the duration of the storm. Normal collections are expected to resume Monday.
