Nassau County is continuing to monitor Hurricane Ian. While it’s still too early to determine the exact impacts of the storm locally, preparations are taking place to ensure we are ready. At a minimal, Nassau County is expected to receive heavy rains and flooding.
Nassau County residents living in low-lying and/or flood prone areas should begin preparing now. The County will have sandbags available at two locations:
· Yulee Road Department: 86200 Gene Lasserre Boulevard, Yulee, FL 32097
· Hilliard Road Department: 37356 Pea Farm Road, Hilliard, FL 32046
Both sites will be open beginning at 12:30 p.m. today and will close at 7:00 p.m. tonight. Following today, sites will be open from 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. until further notice.
Hundreds of bags are pre-filled and available on a first come, first served basis. Once the pre-filled bags are gone, residents will need to fill their own bags. Please bring a shovel. Must provide proof of residency.
If you have any questions, please contact Nassau County Emergency Management at (904) 548-0900.
