Mandatory Evacuations

Public safety officials are urging residents living on beachside, in low-lying areas that are known to flood, and in mobile homes to evacuate their homes in advance of the potentially powerful storm’s landfall.  For evacuation information online, please refer to the county's information website

The city of Daytona Beach does not issue passes for re-entry to the beachside. Typically what happens is people will show their driver’s license or other form of photo ID that shows they live in the area they are trying to access. Officials and public safety also work with people who are trying to get to work, and encourage people to have ID or something from their workplace which verifies their place of employment.
