By Nassau County Emergency Operations
Nassau County has already begun experiencing dangerous rip currents and as a result, double red flags have been placed along the beach. Double red flags indicate that the water is closed! This includes all water activities including swimming and the use of watercrafts. (boats, jet skis, etc.)
Both Nassau County and The City of Fernandina Beach are closely monitoring the tides and may intermittently suspend beach driving as tides approach the dunes. This applies to Seaside Park in the City of Fernandina Beach, and the County’s beach driving areas at Peters Point, Scott Road and American Beach. We have been advised that the State Park on the south end of Amelia Island has already suspended beach driving temporarily.
Please continue to remain vigilant and follow public safety announcements. They can be heard on NOAA Weather Radio; Local radio stations 89.9 FM, 104.5 FM and 690 AM; and local news stations Channels 4, 12, 30 and 47.
If you have any questions, please contact Nassau County Emergency Management at (904) 548-0900.
