[ARCHIVED] Residents encouraged to prepare for Hurricane Ian

WEB_Hurricane Ian Updates_Sept 26 2022

City staff are continuing to monitor the track of Hurricane Ian. 

Residents are encouraged to make sure they are prepared should Hurricane Ian affect our area.

  • Make a Plan: Talk to your family about what steps you will take if you have to hunker down or evacuate the area for a few days.
  • Get a Kit: Gather together necessities including enough food, water and other items to last you and your family for several days. Make sure you also have supplies for your pets.
  • Stay Informed. Sign up for the city’s Alerts at www.CODB.us/Alerts


Beachside Access

When the sustained wind speed reaches 39 mph, all bridges crossing the Halifax River will be closed. They will reopen after the Florida Department of Transportation inspects them and determines they are structurally safe. The City of Daytona Beach does not issue passes for re-entry to the beachside. Typically what happens is people show their driver’s license or other form of photo ID that shows they live in the area they are trying to access. People needing to go to their place of employment, will need to show ID and/or something from their workplace, which verifies their place of employment.

Citizen Hotline

Residents with questions about Hurricane Ian can call the city’s Citizen Hotline daily until further notice. The number to call is (386) 671-5555. 

City Hall, Community Centers and Facilities

Daytona Beach City Hall, community centers and facilities will be closing at 2 p.m. today due to Hurricane Ian. City facilities will reopen Monday, Oct. 3. City emergency and public safety staff will continue to monitor the track of the storm and provide essential services. The city’s emergency operations center has been activated. People are encouraged to sign up for city emergency notifications.

Daytona Beach Pier

The Daytona Beach Pier is closed until further notice.

Sandbags

Sandbag supplies are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday in the parking lot near the southeast corner of Orange Avenue and Jean Street for Daytona Beach residents and business owners. Residents are asked to bring their own shovel. There is no charge for sandbags and there is a 10-bag limit per vehicle. 

Yard and Garbage Collection

Yard debris will be picked up Wednesday, as usual; however, residential and commercial garbage collections have been suspended for Thursday and Friday. There should be no debris left outside by 6 p.m. Wednesday. Residents are encouraged to bring their garbage cans and recycling bins inside their garage or secured for the duration of the storm. Normal collections are expected to resume Monday.
