Responders are busy answering calls for help from those who did not evacuate; roads are very dangerous.
Hecksher bridge is under water. The Shave bridge is structurally sound but roads on either side have water and debris. Power is out on 95% of the island and many other areas in the county - damaged transmission lines (not just down power lines and transformers) are going to take quite a while to repair. There is wide-spread flooding and trees/debris in roads in Callahan, Yulee, and Hilliard.
First Responders are asking residents to PLEASE STAY OFF THE ROADS and DON'T TRY TO RETURN TO THE ISLAND so they have time to complete rescue operation and render neighborhoods safe. Resources and public services (medical, fire, fuel, food) are extremely scarce on the island and many other areas in Nassau County. If you are in a safe place, please Stay There and wait for official word that it is safe for everyone to return.
