As of 5:00 p.m. yesterday evening, Nassau County has been placed under a Tropical Storm Surge Watch. This means that Nassau County could experience high tides and storm surge as a result of Hurricane Ian. Residents should prepare now by checking disaster supplies and ensuring you have an evacuation plan in place.
Please note that a Storm Surge Watch is different that a Storm Surge Warning. Right now, residents are reminded to stay vigilant and have a plan in place. Should a Storm Surge Warning be issued, Nassau County residents in low-lying and flood prone areas should prepare by placing sandbags around doors and garage doors, elevating or anchoring utilities, elevating furniture and clearing gutters of debris.
