Hurricane Ian Press Release #7 – Beach Driving Suspended

As of 1:45 p.m., a decision was made to temporarily suspend beach driving due to high tides related to
Hurricane Ian. This applies to County beaches located within the unincorporated areas of Amelia Island
(Peters Point south to the State Park). We have also confirmed with the City of Fernandina Beach that beach
parking at Seaside Park is now prohibited as well. At this time, we have no information related to beaches
within the State Park on the south end of Amelia Island.
We will continue to monitor the situation however it is likely that beach driving will remain suspended until
after the storm passes. We will be sure to make announcements when the beach driving suspension is lifted.
Please continue to remain vigilant and follow public safety announcements. They can be heard on NOAA
Weather Radio; Local radio stations 89.9 FM, 104.5 FM and 690 AM; and local news stations Channels 4,
12, 30 and 47.
