Flagler County, FL-Progress in Flagler County, as bridges to the barrier island from the mainland reopened this morning after the curfew expired at 7AM.

“We ask that anyone going into Flagler Beach or the Hammock be respectful of the clean-up efforts the residents who live there,” Flagler County Administrator Craig Coffey said. “We don’t want to interfere with their work.”

Officials also ask that beachside visitors stay out of the depressions on State Road A1A.

“We are concerned for everyone’s safety,” Coffey said. “We are worried that portions of the roadway may still wash away.”

While the bridges will be open, Flagler’s beaches will be closed until further notice because of safety issues. Debris is littering the beach and the water, including wood from the pier that was partially destroyed, roofing nails, and both metal and wood from the dune walkovers – which have also been left unsafe for use.
