Hurricane Irma has impacted Jacksonville residents in a variety of different ways. While the Legends Center and Southside Baptist Church continue to offer shelter to those without access to their homes, Mayor Lenny Curry is seeking to support citizens affected by widespread power outages. Through Sunday, the Prime Osborn Convention Center (1000 Water St. – 32204) is opening its doors to help people seeking to “cool off” a bit with air-conditioning and access to electricity and Internet. Persons will need to bring their own equipment (electronics, and charging cords).

Evacuation Zones of Duval County.
September 10, 2017
The City of Jacksonville and Duval County Emergency Management encourage you to determine your zone on the accompanying map and make advance plans for you and your family. In the event of an approaching storm, local government will work with the National Weather Service and other partners to provide you with specific information on which zones need to evacuate while simultaneously ensuring you have the best available information about the possible effects of the storm in your specific area.

September 10, 2017
Duval County’s local emergency preparedness measures are always being improved and updated. This includes a significant change in the statewide approach to evacuation zones. In the past, evacuation zones have been primarily based on the category of the approaching storm. New scientific data that includes other factors, such as wave action, precipitation, and areas known to flood, has allowed us to better define evacuation zones for Duval County. Evacuation zones are based on a lettering system, with A,B,C,D,E, and F Zones.
