COVID-19 (coronavirus) Update. Stay informed with the latest information.


Post-storm updates and openings

Posted On: September 4, 2019

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:

  • County offices
  • Volusia County libraries, with the exception of Edgewater; that library had minor flooding.
  • County parks
  • DeBary Hall
  • The Tomoka Landfill
  • The Daytona Beach International Airport; customers should contact their airline directly for questions regarding their flight.
  • Ocean Center

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.


  • Volusia County Schools will open Friday, Sept. 6.
  • Daytona State College will open Friday, Sept. 6.
