Flagler County officials are requesting the voluntary evacuation of the barrier island, areas near the Intracoastal, as well as for those living in manufactured homes throughout the county.
“We are asking people to leave voluntarily today, Wednesday,” County Administrator Craig Coffey said. “This will become mandatory tomorrow. We want everyone to be safe.”
The areas that need to be evacuated are as follows: Evacuation Zone A which is everything east of the Intracoastal including Marineland, Hammock, Flagler Beach along A1A; and, portions of Zone B if you live east of Old Kings Road and front on a tidal (saltwater) canal or the Intracoastal waterway; or if you live in a modular or mobile home.
The city of Palm Coast is asking additional residents who live in the entire Woodlands, Hidden Lakes and the Toscana subdivisions due to the close proximity to Graham Swamp.
Evacuation Zones are based on the storm surge predictions and wind impact to modular and mobile homes. Evacuation zone information is available here.
Officials are asking that anyone who lives adjacent to the Intracoastal or one of the connecting canals should also evacuate. Additionally, residents who live in manufactured homes anywhere within Flagler County.
“As the situation evolves and evacuations become mandatory, we will let everyone know how the situation changes to affect you,” said Steve Garten, public safety emergency manager.
