From Emergency Management:
Nassau County Emergency Management Will Monitor Tropical Cyclone Isaias through Weekend
Hurricane Isaias is expected to move through the Bahamas and then toward the Florida East Coast over the weekend, with Nassau County projecting conditions similar to a strong Nor’easter on Sunday that could produce minor flooding in parts of the county.
Emergency Management Director Greg Foster says the Emergency Operations Center will monitor the storm throughout the weekend and provide situational updates on the website www.OneNassau.com and social media (NassauEM is on Facebook, Twitter, and Nextdoor) at 9:00 am and again at 3:00 pm both Saturday and Sunday.
Foster says Nassau County residents should monitor the storm’s path throughout the weekend. Foster says no evacuations are planned, but a special needs shelter will be on stand-by in case of extended county power outages. “If you feel your own safety is at risk, you should take appropriate action,” Foster advises. “Otherwise, monitor the storm through NassauEM and shelter in place.” Nassau County residents who anticipate needing evacuation assistance or medical accommodations in a public emergency shelter should register on Florida’s Special Needs Registry each hurricane season at https://snr.flhealthresponse.com/.
Foster reminds residents the tropics are becoming more active and hurricane preparedness, especially while we remain under a Public Health Advisory for the pandemic, should be a priority for all Nassau County residents. Be prepared, not scared.
