Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry on Wednesday night moved to close all three beaches in Duval — Atlantic, Jacksonville and Neptune — until further notice due to Hurricane Ian.

“I’ve been in constant contact with the Mayor’s of Atlantic, Neptune and Jacksonville Beach preparing for impacts from Hurricane Ian. At this time, we are closing all three beaches to the public until further notice. We will reopen as soon as it’s safe for citizens,” Curry said in a tweet.

Emergency officials were anticipating at least a 3-foot storm surge at the beaches.
