Hurricane Passes

The City of Daytona Beach Shores is currently issuing Hurricane Passes to residents, property owners and business owners and their essential personnel.  If you have obtained a pass since the 2009 season, you do not need a replacement.  They do not expire.

Hurricane Passes can be obtained at the Daytona Beach Shores City Hall, 2990 S. Atlantic Ave. or  the Daytona Beach Shores Department of Public Safety, 3050 S. Atlantic Ave.  Proof of residency or ownership is required.  Passes are available for pickup Monday – Friday 8 am – 4 pm.

Closures & Reopenings

City Hall will be closed on Friday, September 8th, 2017 at 3 PM and Monday, September 11th, 2017.  We plan to re-open on Tuesday, September 12th, 2017.

Beaches remain closed. There is debris on the beach and in the water. Beach officials are flying the double-red flag and there should be no water activity. People should not walk on the beach due to potential hazards. There also is a high rip current risk.

Volusia County Government offices will be closed Tuesday. 

All county parks are closed as of 5 p.m. Thursday

All Volusia County Public Schools Schools will be closed Friday, September 8th  through Wednesday, September 13th. For more information visit: https://www.volusia.org/services/public-protection/emergency-management/pin/schools.stml

The Dunlawton Bridge is now Open.

Curfew

A countywide curfew has been implemented from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. until further notice due to the power outages, flooding and damage to homes and businesses from Hurricane Irma. 

Shelters

There are two special needs shelters open:


Atlantic High School, 1250 Reed Canal Road, Port Orange
Freedom Elementary School, 1395 S. Blue Lake Ave., DeLand

All other shelters have been closed.

These special needs shelters can only accommodate those with oxygen needs or those who have medication needing refrigeration. No other special needs can be accommodated. In addition, there is no air conditioning and limited lighting due to power outages.

Persons who do not have special needs, but cannot stay in their home due to damage or flooding from Hurricane Irma, can seek shelter at Atlantic High School or Freedom Elementary. However, these schools do not have power. Persons who seek shelter here, that do not have special needs, will be housed in the school’s gymnasium, which does not have power or air conditioning.
