    October 4, 2016 - The Flagler County Emergency Operations Center is operating at a heightened status, and has set up a call-in center for residents with questions.

    That call in number will be 386-586-5111.
    "We are doing our best to make sure everyone gets their questions answered," Garten said. "Fill your car up with gasoline, make sure your important documents are in a water-tight container, and, of course, make sure you have water and non-perishable food."
    Volunteers are currently scheduled to answer the phones between the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday. If the weather conditions warrant it, the call-in center will be operational on Friday.

    Flagler County Chamber Reschedules Two Events in Anticipation of Hurricane Matthew

    Palm Coast, FL - After consultations with Flagler County leaders and municipal partners, the Flagler County Chamber of Commerce announced today that it would postpone two upcoming events, its Common Ground breakfast scheduled for Thursday, October 6 and The 12th Annual Creekside Festival scheduled for October 8 & 9. The decision was made shortly after Governor Scott declared a State of Emergency for the entire state after forecasters adjusted the trajectory of the storm to show that there is potential for Matthew to strike Florida and continue on a northward path.
    "We are closely monitoring the weather forecast and thought it best to reschedule these events for the safety of our guests, " said Chamber President Rebecca DeLorenzo. "We are hopeful that the storm's impact to our community will be minimal; nonetheless, it's necessary for all residents and businesses to take emergency preparations seriously in the event we experience a natural disaster."
    According to DeLorenzo, the Common Ground Breakfast with City Managers Dan Davis of Bunnell, Larry Newsome of Flagler Beach and Jim Landon of Palm Coast is being rescheduled from October 6 until October 27. The new event will take place at the Hilton Garden Inn in Palm Coast, starting at 8AM.
    The 12th Annual Creekside Festival will be postponed until Saturday, November 5 and Sunday, November 6 and will take place at Princess Place Preserve. Vendors and volunteers are being notified of the date change.
    For more information about the Chamber and its upcoming events, please call (386) 437-0106.

    3. Document the current state of your property to include buildings, vehicles and inventory with photos and video.
    4. Back up all your data.
    5. Secure all documentation. Review your insurance coverage.
    6. Contact your customers and suppliers and share relative emergency communications and recovery plan as soon as possible.
    7. Recovery - for the purpose of assessment please have a letter naming all essential assessment personnel to be allowed back onto your property. IDs will be required when those persons are entering back into a disaster area. They should also have a copy of the letter granting them access permission to your property in their hand at the time of reentry. This will also be the case for property managers. Please email letters to situationunit@flaglercounty.org.

    Mandatory evacuations called for eastern most Flagler County

    The track of Hurricane Matthew has shifted west, prompting Flagler County officials to call for a mandatory evacuation of zones A and B beginning at 6 a.m. Thursday.

    “The current storm surge estimates have risen and that will likely cause a greater impact to Flagler County,” said Steve Garten, public safety emergency manager. “We would like residents to head west. Shelter space is intended for those who have no other option so if you have friends and family you can stay with, please make those arrangements.”

    Evacuation Zone A includes everything east of the Intracoastal including Marineland, Hammock, Flagler Beach along A1A.
    Evacuation Zone B includes the neighborhoods along Colbert Lane to the south, all of the C section and the F section east of Florida Park Drive and the F section east of Palm Harbor Parkway. This zone also includes the area east of Old Kings Road, south of State Road 100 including Bulow and its adjacent neighborhood, Grand Haven and western Flagler Beach.

    These residents will be notified by CodeRED of the evacuation order.

    Flagler County is asking residents to respect the evacuation order, especially on the barrier island. Once sustained winds reach 45 mph, the bridges will close and first responders will not be able to respond to the area.

    I think we are staying. Once you cross the bridge you can't get back. Also hard to find a hotel that will take a large dog.
