As Hurricane Dorian makes its exit from the area, officials have begun making preparations to begin normal operations.
Curfew and evacuation notice
The evacuation notice issued for residents who live on the beachside, in RVs and mobile homes east of Interstate 95, and in low-lying areas has been canceled. Tonight’s emergency curfew for cities and unincorporated areas east of the Halifax River has been lifted.
Initial assessment of Volusia County beaches show no significant infrastructure damage. A combination of a king tide and increased surf from the storm caused slight erosion at ramps and removed some conservation zone poles. Staff is working to replace conservation poles, toll booths and trash receptacles and will reopen the beach and inlet parks Thursday, Sept. 5.
County facilities and services
The following county services will resume normal operations Thursday, Sept. 5:
Votran has resumed normal operations.
The Marine Science Center will open Friday, Sept. 6, to allow staff time to transport the animals back to the center and prepare the exhibit for reopening to the public.
