The Florida Highway Patrol will begin escorting fuel trucks to the State of Florida today. The State has fuel tankers, additional rescue units, helicopters, utility vehicles and water search and rescue teams on stand-by and will be staging them so they are ready to respond to affected areas immediately following the storm.
Should the Hurricane stay on its current track, it is anticipated that it will turn north and travel over Northeast Florida around Wednesday or Thursday next week. At that time, we could experience hurricane forced wind gusts and long, extended periods of rain.
The County is still issuing sandbags from 7am-9pm as announced earlier this week at the following locations:
- 97177 Pogy Place, Fernandina Beach, FL (North End Boat Ramp)
- 86142 Goodbread Rd., Yulee, FL (Yulee Sports Complex)
- 45401 Mickler Street, Callahan (Walter Boatright County Building)
- 37356 Pea Farm Rd., Hilliard, FL (Hilliard Road & Bridge Yard)
Residents will be required to fill their own bags. Both bags and shovels will be provided. Please limit bags to 25 per household.
RESIDENTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO PROVIDE ID FOR PROOF OF RESIDENCY TO OBTAIN SANDBAGS. THIS IS BEING DONE IN AN EFFORT TO ENSURE ONLY NASSAU COUNTY RESIDENTS ARE COLLECTING SANDBAGS AS WE WANT TO HAVE ENOUGH FOR EVERYONE RESIDING IN NASSAU COUNTY.

The Board of County Commissioners are holding a Special Meeting at 3:00 p.m. to discuss the storm and what the County is doing to prepare. That meeting will be held in the Commission Chambers located at 96135 Nassau Place, Yulee, FL32097. It can also be viewed on our website by clicking here.
