Hurricane Sandy — Possible Restriction on Access to Beaches Being Considered

Filed under Environment

As Hurricane Sandy threatens  St. Johns County through the weekend, vehicular access to St. Johns County beaches may be restricted by local government as government sources tell St Aug News.

Due to the strength and proximity of Hurricane Sandy and the approaching full moon high tides, vehicular access to St. Johns County beaches may be restricted through Sunday, October 28. A potential for the flooding of vehicle access ramps and the driving lane could require limited access to ensure visitor safety. The beach is open to pedestrians and can be accessed through the off beach parking lots available throughout St. Johns County. Beach visitors are strongly encouraged to remain out of the water during this significant weather event.

For preparedness information and Hurricane Sandy situation reports as they become available, please visit the www.sjcemergencymanagement.org. Please call 904.209.0331 for updated information regarding beach access.
