By on September 10, 2017 in WNDB News

Flagler County, FL – Effective at midnight, Flagler County first responders will be grounded for the duration of the storm.

“Sustained winds are projected to have reached 45 mph, which means first responders are unable to respond to calls for service due to unsafe weather conditions,” said Steve Garten, Flagler County public safety emergency manager. “It is very important that everyone stays indoors from here on out.”

Crews will assess the storm damage, power outages, downed electric lines and trees as well as road closures.  Please be patient, first responders will get to those in need of services as soon as possible.

“Please stay where you are until we can determine whether conditions are safe,” Flagler County Administrator Craig Coffey said. “We don’t want anyone to get hurt.”
