County Manager Says Of Hurricane “Event Isn’t Over”

By on October 11, 2016 in WNDB News


Daytona Beach, FL – The message from Volusia County Manager Jim Dinneen Tuesday was loud and clear on Hurricane Matthew when he said, “The event is not over.”

Dinneen, a guest on the Volusia Today show on WNDB, said power restoration continues for some of the extremely hard hit areas of the county and he warned about the need for continued vigilance.

Dinneen pointed to the danger posed by possible live, downed power lines like the one that killed a DeLeon Springs man Monday morning. Dinneen praised the hard work done by thousands of utility workers from Florida and from places as far away as New Jersey for quickly getting power back on to thousands. Dinneen said, “Instead of weeks, the way it was in the past, now it’s days until people have power.”

Dinneen warned about windy weather forecast here today and Wednesday and said that could bring down more trees or debris from the storm. He advised that more power lines could be affected if that happens.
