As Hurricane Dorian continues to impact our area and active storm conditions are forecast to continue through the day and into the evening hours, St. Johns County is reminding everyone to stay alert and remain informed.
Residents are encouraged to shelter in place until storm conditions improve. The evacuation order and curfew remain in effect until further notice. Access to the islands continues to remain restricted to only those who live or work on the barrier islands with legitimate purpose for access.
St. Johns County Emergency Management and partner agencies are fully operational and in emergency response mode as the County continues to put emergency protective actions into place.
As conditions improve over the course of the evening hours, special operations teams from the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, Fire Rescue, and local law enforcement will begin countywide assessments to ensure the safety of the community. Additional information regarding reentry to evacuation zones will be posted to www.sjcfl.us as soon as it becomes available.
