Flagler County officials are recommending that residents who are evacuating today, Friday, September 8, stay informed about traffic and weather conditions as they leave the area.
“Yesterday we were advising people to head west, but we no longer feel that is a good recommendation,” said Flagler County Public Safety Emergency Manager Steve Garten. “The track keeps shifting, which makes it difficult all the way around.”
