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.

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 and Garbage Collection
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.
