YULEE, Fla. - Nassau County commissioners have extended the State of Local Emergency for an additional seven days.

The initial State of Emergency was set to expire Wednesday, but the county, like many others in the region, are still cleaning up from Hurricane Irma who dumped more than a foot of rain in some parts of the region.

Nassau County Emergency Management officials announced Friday they are full preparation mode for staffing and resources in advance of Hurricane Irma. 

For those who need to find their evacuation zones, go to NassauCountyFL.com, click on the emergency management tab and the evacuation zone map will be on the front page.

Shelters

Now that Nassau County's Emergency Public Shelters have closed so that schools can prepare to reopen, The Journey Church in Yulee at 95707 Amelia Concourse has opened to support Emergency Management and house any and all residents who evacuated and have been unable to return home or who still don't have power and need a dry safe place to stay temporarily.

Emergency Management will arrange transportation for evacuees who were transported to public shelters during the storm and returned home but have now decided they can't stay in their homes.

Residents can go directly to The Journey Church or Call the Emergency Operations Center 904-548-0900 for Assistance!
