The Palm Coast-Flagler Regional Chamber of Commerce attended the Flagler County Emergency Management Department’s Thursday, September 29, 2022, Hurricane Ian morning briefing. Below are the latest developments, but it’s clear that today is the day Flagler County will be most impacted. Flooding and beach erosion are the highest concerns this morning.
Good News: A1A still intact, Flagler Pier still intact.
Power Outages: FPL is reporting approximately 17,000 Flagler County residents are without power this morning. Visit the FPL Outage Map, here.
Wind: Tropical storm force winds are expected all day, as Hurricane Ian moves off Florida’s Atlantic coast and continues its track north. SR 100 bridge to Flagler Beach was closed earlier this morning, and it will continue to open/close as conditions worsen or improve.
Flooding: In west Flagler, Daytona North is a concern for flooding. For east Flagler, all waterfront property will continue to be on alert. The previously mentioned evacuation areas are still of concern. Specifically, the dunes on the north side of Flagler County are being closely watched.
The Chamber thanks our first responders and all helping Flagler County weather the storm.
