Nassau County Continues Mandatory Evacuation
Nassau County Emergency Management officials say mandatory evacuations from
zones A, C and F continue going smoothly without any major problems reported
during the day. As Hurricane Dorian continues to linger over the Bahamas,
Director of Nassau County Emergency Management Greg Foster says the storm
remains a concern to Nassau County because of its size and inconsistency.
Two shelters have been open since 8 this morning. The general population shelter
as of 4pm, has 75 people occupying the facility at Callahan Middle School and 7
dogs and 8 cats. At Hilliard Middle Senior High there are 28 special needs clients
and include 7 dogs and 2 cats.
The Nassau County Public works Department has distributed 48 thousand sand
bags and has diminished its available supply.
Nassau County residents are strongly encouraged to monitor all Nassau County
Emergency Management social media sites to remain up to date on the latest
information on Hurricane Dorian. NassauEM on Facebook, @nassauEM on
